- About Plattsburgh
We’re happy you want to help your SUNY Plattsburgh student find career success. From our perspective, we believe success is a blend of interests, values, skills and knowledge aimed at achieving well-being (and yes: financial stability, too).
As a parent or family member, your support and input is important. Our College-Years-to-Career Guide (PDF file size 100KB) provides a quick checklist that you can use to encourage your SUNY Plattsburgh student to get on—and stay on—track toward a great career.
The Career Development Center (CDC) offers many services for students in all phases of their career development. Take a look at our career development information for students page to become familiar with all the resources we provide.
At its core, we believe that career development follows a four-step process that is both simple and complex:
Includes career inventories and skills evaluation, values clarification and a deeper understanding of work-life interests.
Includes academic coursework, engaging with mentors and research into various occupations and industries.
Involves creating career documents, completing pre-professional experiences such as internships or service-learning, and refining skills.
Implementing an active and strategic job search, interviewing, networking and making decisions about career opportunities.
