Award-Winning Guidance

With an increasingly diverse student body, Adelphi offers career guidance appropriate and helpful for students of any background, age, culture or ability—on campus or online.

Why we earned national recognition

We collaborate with students, faculty, alumni, university colleagues and employers to build partnerships that enhance career development and generate career-based experiential education 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. 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 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.
