Attention Graduating Seniors!

Are you graduating this May? Do you already have a job lined up or graduate/professional school plans? Headed to the Peace Corps. or another service organization? The Career Center wants to know, so the First Destination Survey is now available!

The Edinboro University First Destination Survey measures the “first destination” of our graduates during the first year after graduation. The Center for Career Development oversees this effort to better understand the successes and needs of our recent alumni. Alumni will begin receiving the survey to their email six months post-graduation and continue receiving it until the survey is completed or after one year has passed.

This year, we are offering an incentive to our graduating seniors who already know their first destination. All alumni who complete the First Destination Survey between March 2019 and December 2019 will be entered to win a $100 Amazon gift card. Seniors who complete the survey during the Graduation Fair or prior to April 30 will also be entered in a drawing to win a $100 Edinboro Bookstore giftcard – use it to buy some EU alumni swag!

The Career Center staff offer extensive support to recent alumni. Alumni have access to up to three 30-minute in-person or virtual career coaching appointments with a professional career counselor during their first 12 months post-graduation. These sessions can cover everything from resume preparation, job searching, to choosing a graduate program and preparing for graduate entrance exams. We also offer lifetime virtual access to our online job board, where we post hundreds of new positions each semester from our network of over 1,000 employers nationwide.

Interested in these services? Don’t wait to graduate! You have an unlimited number of appointments while you are still enrolled, so stop by and see us today. We have walk-in availability on Wednesdays until 8:00 pm. You may schedule an appointment online here.
