Dear Parents,Ellen Masters, Director of Career Education

As spring break and the summer months approach, we welcome the opportunity to partner with our faithful parents.  We encourage you to speak to your son about developing a plan for the future by following these simple steps to success and preparing for the job, internship, and graduate school search process by:

  • Identifying his skills, values and interests that translate to majors and careers,
  • Engaging in conversations with mentors, advisors, coaches, etc. to answer life's big questions,
  • Researching careers by reviewing Tiger Tracks and opportunities in Tiger Connections,
  • Networking and conducting informational interviews with alumni and other personal contacts,
  • Starting his resume and job/internship search by either scheduling an appointment with a Career Coach (by calling 434-223-6106) or stopping in during our walk-in hours on Wednesdays from 1-6 p.m. in Bagby 213,
  • Reviewing the numerous handouts available online and in the Career Education Office (Bagby 213)
Encourage your son to stay tuned for opportunities, resources, and events of interest by:  
  • Bookmarking Spring 2017 Events including fairs, resume deadlines, employers and graduate school representatives coming to campus, workshops,   
  • Reading biweekly Career EDge emails (Email career@hsc.edu if you'd like to subscribe),
  • Following us on Twitter, and
  • Liking us on Facebook.   
Finally, we are constantly searching for successful individuals including parents who work in a variety of fields and who are willing to provide a valuable gift to your son, his fellow Tigers, and other alumni through: 
  • Sharing information about H-SC's Campus Recruiting program with your Human Resources department, if you are not personally in a position to hire,
  • Posting job/internship opportunities for students; by calling (434) 223-6106, emailing career@hsc.edu, or visiting the Career Education website
We wish you all the best as we welcome longer days, warmer temperatures, and sons with awesome opportunities! Forming Good Men and Good Citizens through Career Education and Vocational Reflection,

Ellen Masters, Director
