Career Services

A member of the career services team

What does life after college look like to you? What kinds of fields do students in your major pursue? How can you try out different opportunities to see for yourself if they're a great fit for you? 

Career services is here to guide you from your first day on campus through your entire professional life. We're here to help with everything from career exploration to resume-building, finding and internship, interviewing skills and so much more.

In addition to working one-on-one with students and alumni, we partner with local, regional and national organizations who are eager to hire Salem State Vikings. Let us help you find a career path you're passionate about and a great company to begin your professional life.
