The Office of Career Development guides and empowers students to discover their strengths and talents, helping them to articulate their interests and experiences to create a positive and lasting impact on the world.
Schedule an Appointment
Students can schedule appointments to meet with a career advisor through Handshake. Remote appointments are available. Current undergraduate students are automatically provided with a Handshake account accessible with their salve.edu email address and password.
Career Development uses the Handshake database to post jobs (full-time, part-time and summer), internships and student employment positions. Top employers – including all the Fortune 500 companies – recruit students through Handshake, giving you access to jobs and internships not available anywhere else.
After you activate your profile, you can filter and search based on your interests and discover new career possibilities. You can also receive personalized recommendations based on your skills, major, location preferences and search history.
Our student employment program offers the opportunity for students to work on campus, or off campus through the Service Advocates program. Only matriculated undergraduate students enrolled for at least 12 credits in the semester in which they work are eligible for these positions.
Peer Career Advisors
Peer career advisors serve as ambassadors for career services and student employment. They are trained to provide accurate information about the office and its resources, and encourage students to understand and connect with career services. Students can visit the Office of Career Development during walk-in hours for a 15-minute resume or cover letter meeting with a peer career advisor every weekday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. without an appointment.
