All of the following services are available to SHSU alumni at no charge.  Whether you are a job seeker, interested in changing careers, or are an employer looking to recruit fellow Bearkats, we are happy to assist you!

Career Assessments

We offer the Newly Revised Strong Interest Inventory® and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI) career assessments at no charge to alumni - call to get a username and password to take these assessments online and to schedule a time to review the results with a career counselor.

Career Counseling

Considering a career change? Schedule an appointment to meet with a career counselor to review career plans, develop a winning resume, to explore job-search strategies or to address any career-related concerns you may have. Career-counseling services are free and confidential.

Resume/Cover-Letter Writing Assistance

Need to spruce up your resume? Schedule an appointment to have your resume critiqued by a member of our professional staff. Live out of town now that you have graduated? No problem, email your resume and it will be returned to you with corrections.

Mock Interviewing

Interviewing styles have changed. Take advantage of our InterviewStream online resource through jobsforkats.com. Individual mock interviews can also be scheduled with a career services professional staff member throughout the year. Interviews are usually 20-30 minutes in duration and by request are video-taped for your review and our constructive feedback afterwards.

We welcome drop-ins but to avoid having to wait for an available staff member, we recommended that you call us at (936) 294-1713 to schedule an appointment!
