Overview of Services for Alumni
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!
It's important to pursue a job/career that "fits". To discover the best jobs/careers for you it is therefore important for you first to identify your skills, interests, personality and work-related values. 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.
Not sure of the career direction you want to take? Need some help getting started? 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
You may schedule an appointment to have your resume critiqued by a member of our professional staff, or for your convenience we also offer a "drop-off" service. Just leave your resume at the front desk and we'll call you to pick it up after it's been critiqued! Live out of town now that you have graduated? No problem, email your resume here and it will be returned to you with corrections.
In order to successfully prepare for future interviews, we recommend that you practice your interviewing techniques! Individual or group mock interviews can 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!
