    Career Counseling is free for SFA students and alumni. The fee is $25 per inventory completed for other participants.
  • Career Counseling: Sessions
    Career Counseling is completed in three sessions. If further sessions are desired, a participant may schedule appointments beyond session 3.

  • Career Fairs
    Career Fairs are an opportunity for SFA students and alumni to meet and network with professionals and begin the journey toward internships and full-time employment upon graduation.
    Only SFA students and alumni are allowed to attend career fairs.
  • Career Guides/Guidebooks
    Guides are career-related resources tailored specifically to SFA student and alumni needs. These guides provide in-depth information in an array of career-related topics.
    A Guidebook is a complete set of guides on a certain topic (ex. Resume Guidebook).
    Guide topics:
    Resume
    Interview
    Internships
    Considering Graduate School?
    Your Professional Brand
    Career Exploration
    Job Search
    Life After College
    To access the guides online:
    Logon to the Career Services website
    On the left menu, click on Student
    Select the area of interest
    To view Guidebooks, click on SFA Career Guides.
    Users can print the online PDFs or, at a later date, have the ability to purchase an entire book in Career Services.
  • Information Sessions & Tables
    Information Sessions
    Employers have the opportunity to share more about their organization and opportunities available. Often times, these information sessions are held the day before On-Campus Interviews and usually in the evening.
    On-Campus Recruiting Table
    An on-campus recruiting table is available for an organization to present information about and recruit for employment opportunities. Generally, tables are in the Baker Pattillo Student Center or in front of McGee Business Building.
     
    A “Sponsored by Career Services” sign must be prominently displayed on top of the table at all times. This sign must be picked up and returned to Career Services each recruiting day. In addition, if the organization would like to hand out promotional materials to students, the item(s) must be approved by Career Services prior to the recruiting date(s).
  • InterviewStream
    InterviewStream software uses information specific to the user to create realistic interview scenarios that are custom tailored to each interviewee. InterviewStream allows the user to capture responses to interview questions using a webcam. This feature enables the user to see exactly how they will look and sound to a prospective employer.
    InterviewStream can be completed on a Career Services computer or with another computer that has webcam availability.
     
    What to expect:
    It is a different experience talking to a webcam without being able to see the interviewer. However, the goal of InterviewStream is to be able to critique individual performance in a private environment, before actually sitting in front of an interviewer.
     
    What to concentrate on:
    InterviewStream provides the ultimate opportunity for self-critique. Concentrate on critiquing these areas when replaying answers to interview questions:
    Posture
    Eye contact
    Nervous behaviors (e.g. fidgeting, rambling, etc.)
    Gestures
    Fillers (e.g. Um, so, hm, uh, like, you know, etc.)
    Content in answering questions
  • Jobs4Jacks
    Jobs4Jacks is SFA’s exclusive online employment database.
    Employer functions:
    Post available internships, off-campus part-time and full-time job opportunities within organization

  • Job Search Assistance
    Career Services professional staff are able to assist students when beginning or continuing an internship or full-time position. While each instance is handled on a case-by-case basis, staff provide information on topics such as utilizing the Internet in their search, the importance of networking and building a resume that works for them.
    Types of job search appointments:
    Internship search
    Full-time job search
    Resume assistance

  • Minute Clinics
    Minute Clinics are designed with the busy student in mind, as well as for reaching the student who is unaware of Career Services. Minute Clinics are provided in convenient, high-traffic areas of campus, most generally in the Baker Pattillo Student Center. Each Minute Clinic hosts a different topic, ranging from resume to interviewing, etc. While collecting information on the topic, students are able to ask any questions they may have in relation to Career Services.
  • Mock Interviews
    Mock interviews with Career Services staff are available to those interested in constructively sharpening and enhancing important interview skills, by creating a situation as close to the real interview as possible. A mock interview is a practice interview conducted by a professional Career Services staff member, in which the interviewee is asked questions typical to those in an employment or professional school admissions interview.
     
    The format of a mock interview is:
    Introduction: After exchanging greetings, the interviewer will briefly explain the mock interview process and what to expect. Participant will be able to ask any questions before the mock interview begins.
    Interview: Upon consent, the question and answer segment of the mock interview will begin.
    Personal critique: After the last question, the interviewer will ask for the participant’s thoughts on how the interview went. This provides time for self-critique and to personally address areas of weakness and strength.
    Professional critique: After self-critique, the interviewer will supply participant with further feedback. Areas critiqued may include answer content, nonverbal behaviors, interview attire, etc.
  • New Student Employee Orientation
    Career Services provides a New Student Employee Orientation for all new student employees at SFA. This orientation is designed to acquaint new student employees with customer service ideals, as well as providing valuable advice on developing a professional image. In addition, other topics covered during the orientation include:
    Proper Internet and computer usage
    Telephone and email etiquette
    Handling confidential information and lots more!
    While the Orientation is designed for first-time on-campus student employees, the orientation is open to any student employee.
    Generally the Orientation lasts an hour and a half. Upon completion, the student will receive a certificate of participation and a checklist to give to the supervisor as proof of attendance.
  • Off-Campus Student Employment
    Career Services maintains off-campus part-time postings. Employers will post these positions on Jobs4Jacks, where students will have the ability to view and learn more about them.
  • On-Campus Interviews
    Each year, companies from Texas and across the nation visit SFA to interview students and alumni for internship and professional full-time positions. Students and alumni who are interested in signing up for on-campus interviews must register with Jobs4Jacks.
     
    There are two types of interview schedules:
    Pre-selectinterviews allow the employer to screen interested applicants that have submitted their resume in order to select candidates to interview
    Openinterviews allow students to directly sign up for an interview time on the interview schedule (without first being screened)
     
    To view the on-campus interview schedule:
