Alumni

The Citadel Career Center Staff's primary focus is to assist currently enrolled students.  However, alumni have FREE access to all online resources, invitations to career events, access to hireLINK, our Career Management System, and access to drop-in hours daily, 1:00-4:00 pm Monday - Thursday. 

DO YOU HAVE APPOINTMENT TIMES FOR ALUMNI? 

While our focus is current students (and depending on staff availability), we will schedule a 30-minute phone appointment or a 45 minute in-person appointment for basic career guidance, resume and cover letter feedback, or to offer effective job search strategies. Email careercenter@citadel.edu for assistance. 

For advanced or recoccuring career counseling needs, we refer alumni to Butch Howard with Choice Point Consulting.  Services start with a free 30 minute assesment. Prices for services vary from executive resume writing at $250, up to full skills assessment packages ranging from $2000-$2500 for a 12-14hours. For details contact ButchHoward@choicepointsc.com / ph (843)437-3542. 

CAN YOU GIVE ME RESUME FEEDBACK?

Due to our staff size, we cannot accomidate online reviews (see above for Choice Point Consulting).  If you are new to the Charleston area or are a recent graduate, you may come to drop-in hours Mon-Thurs. 1-4pm for resume and job search assistance. 

CAN YOU HELP ME FIND ALUMNI IN _______ (LOCATION)? 

All Citadel alumni have access our Citadel Alumni Association Clubs and Classes.  If you are looking for support from The Citadel Alumni Association, our first recommendation is, reach out to your local club, our the club of interest, find out when their next meeting is, AND SHOW UP! We have a wonderfully supportive  group of alumni who are happy to help. However, reaching out and asking for help with job placement is not recommended (would you recommend someone for a job whom you have never met)? 

Next, are you using the Linkedin Alumni Tool?  If you hope to connect with alumni to ask advice and direction about career options, Linkedin's Alumni Tool is the most current and up to date way to see the where many of our alumni are professsionally. Again, researching and organizing your approach is recommended. Here is a quick overview to get you started! 

I AM MOVING TO CHARLESTON, CAN YOU HELP ME? 

Charleston is a great city! If you are an entry-level job seeker with up to five years of expereince, check hireLINK, our Career Management System. The Career Center recieves an average of 10 job leads daily. We work hard to vet and share this information in realtime.
