Building a Successful Future
It doesn’t take our graduates long to recognize the value of an Adelphi education. Our students find employment in their chosen fields quickly—with a typical starting salary 25 percent higher than the national average.
Career readiness and work-based opportunities are critical parts of an Adelphi education.
Our career experts collaborate with students, faculty, alumni, university colleagues and both corporate and non-profit partners and recruiters to help you discover the career path that fits you best. Our team creates hands-on learning experiences and career-building internship and employment opportunities for students and alumni.
Great résumés are not created at the end of senior year; they are built over four years with the skill development, hands-on experience and career knowledge that comes from choosing the right courses, part-time and summer jobs, internships, community service, and extracurricular activities. Our career counselors are available to advise students on their many choices as they build a résumé throughout their years in college. The Center has current information about campus and off-campus part-time employment, seasonal employment and volunteer opportunities. Workshops are offered regularly in résumé writing and interview skills, which prepare our graduating students for the job search. Our recruitment programs, job fairs, online job search service Handshake and database bring students in contact with a wide variety of employers.
Our services continue to be available to all alumni as they consider changing careers or prepare for advancements in their current careers.
With Handshake, you can launch a job or internship search, and employers can easily connect with you.
