Making a life…and a living.

SU arms students with the tools they need to succeed in the real world. While most U.S. students secure jobs after they graduate, many SU graduates – 40 percent in 2012 – land their jobs before graduation.

Your child will work with Career Services to practice interviews, get an internship, develop a resume, and network with nearly a quarter of a million SU alumni. You’ll enjoy a big return on investment…and a sense of relief.

Feel free to reach out by calling 315.443.3611 or emailing orange@syr.edu.
