Career Services and Cooperative Education Launches New Resources For Students
The Job Search Strategies Handbook serves as a comprehensive guide to the job search process. The handbook offers strategies for finding full time employment and provides an in-depth guide to useful resources such as industry lists, professional associations, upcoming job fairs, alumni networking information, and much more. Students will have all the information they need at their fingertips to jump start their job searches. The handbook is available at the CS/CE office or online at www.suffolk.edu/careers.
CareerSearch, is a web-based database of employers worldwide. This website allows students to search for and target companies in their chosen field and location. Once chosen, the site provides detailed information about the company including contact information, website, key employees, number of employees on staff, and clients.
For example, a student looking for Advertising/Public Relations firms in Rhode Island only needs to enter in their specific criteria and the site generates a list of 40+ different companies. An MBA with a search criteria of “HMOs/PPOs in Massachusetts” generates 25+ employers and contacts.
The database is a collection of employers from virtually all industries, including for-profits, non-profits and government agencies. CareerSearch is a valuable resource for students and alumni seeking to target and initiate contact with employers as part of a targeted, direct mail campaign.
Students can access CareerSearch by going to the website http://v2.careersearch.net/client. In order to be able to register initially as a Suffolk University student/alum, you will need the "Client Referral Code" available by request at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 617-573-8480.
The Department of Career Services and Cooperative Educations is committed to offering students the most current and up-to-date information to further their career goals. Access to these two new resources is only the latest effort by the department to ensure students are prepared for today’s job market.
