Career Services and Internships
Career Services & Internships provides students with the opportunity to explore different majors and career options utilizing a variety of resources and services including career counseling, career and personality assessments, handouts, career planning courses (SPR 18 and SPR 70) and innovative, hands-on programming. Part-time, full-time, internship and volunteer opportunities are available on the Mount's on-line Career Network, at: www.mountcareernetwork.com. There is also a LinkedIn group that helps connect students with alumnae employers called: Mount Saint Mary’s University: Students & Alumnae via LinkedIn.com.
Professional staff work with students to prepare them for internships and employment opportunities by reviewing resumes and cover letters, assisting with developing interviewing techniques through mock interviews, and providing information on how to conduct a successful job or internship search. Several programs are offered throughout the year including an on-campus career fair, graduate school fair, nursing career panels, etiquette dinner, career-related workshops on graduate school, interviewing, resumes and cover letters, and job search and social media resources. Our department also supports students in their major and career exploration through two assessments called the Strong Interest Inventory and the Myers-Briggs Interest Inventory.
