The mission of the Office of Career Services is to provide a comprehensive program of career related resources designed to help Eckerd students and alumni apply their liberal arts education into meaningful employment. The exploration of personal and professional life goals is an ongoing process that should commence prior to a student's arrival on campus and continue throughout the duration of his or her academic program.
Placement assistance and resources are central to the role of Career Services. Numerous companies and organizations furnish Career Services with company information. Students are offered a variety of resources to assist them in the exploratory process. Our objective is to help students make wise decisions about their postgraduate plans.
The Career Services staff takes pride in providing individualized assistance to Eckerd College students and alumni. Whether you are a first-year student searching for a campus work-study position or an experienced worker at mid-career, our goal is to help you meet yours.
Attend Our Fairs
Students don't miss this opportunity to speak directly to employer representatives and get your resume to the top of the stack! Please bring your latest, polished resume. Attire should be business casual at a minimum, and if you have a suite/dress – that's perfect! A list of participating employers will be available closer to the Fair date.
Businesses & Organizations: The best education is one that prepares you for the how, as well as the what, an education that teaches you to ThinkOutside. An Eckerd College experience is not about teaching students a rigid set of facts. As one of 40 schools featured in Colleges that Change Lives and a member of Phi Beta Kappa, it's clear that Eckerd's first priority is to teach students how to learn.
Employer registration is required to participate. As always, there are no fees to participate in our Fairs.
Eckerd, a private College of liberal arts and sciences, invites students to ThinkOutside. At our 188-acre waterfront campus and at points around the globe, we venture together in the Eckerd experience to think outside the conventional questions, methods and solutions, seeking to build a better world.
