COMPASS - Calling & Career

SEU approaches career counseling and job placement assistance from a completely different perspective.

We help students learn how to discern God’s call for their lives at COMPASS—The Center for Calling and Career.

By viewing your career as an overflow of your calling, which is about your relationship with God and His plan for your life, you can be more confident in the path you choose. We’re here to help you make that happen. 

Email compass@seu.edu for more information or to get started.

Student Services

Here are just a few ways COMPASS helps our students and graduates find both jobs and personal fulfillment in their careers. Visit the link below to register for our online job portal, College Central Network.

  • Mock Interviews

    Practicing interviewing skills prior to going on one cannot only help students get a job, but also increase their confidence in their abilities to present themselves well, and discern whether a potential employer is a good fit for their personal goals.

  • Professional Dress Seminars

    What you wear to an interview, and then on a daily basis once employed, has some real meaning. COMPASS presents on this topic periodically so that students are always suited up for success.

  • Resume Workshops

    Whether it’s from volunteering, mission trips, study abroad, internships or work experience, many things students do prior to graduation will help them in the future. COMPASS helps students see how the skills developed from these opportunities can either translate into a career, or help them in their field. Knowing both will help determine if, and how, that experience should be listed on a resume.

  • VIP Days

    Employers, pastors, and human resources representatives come to campus to recruit students who are looking for internships, part-time work while still in school, or full-time careers after graduation.

  • Life Mapping

    Pulling from students’ life experiences using a life map can often help an undecided student discern their field. This is usually much more effective than a personality quiz or similar testing method.

  • Practical Skills

    The COMPASS team provides practical tools and resources that help students and graduates to live out their gifts and abilities. One of the biggest ways COMPASS does this is by helping students recognize and grow their transferable skills, since many employers aren’t as focused on grades and majors as they are on real-life experience.

  • Career Coaches

    COMPASS has career coaches dedicated to each of the colleges within SEU, who are not only familiar with the majors available in each, but what alumni are now doing with those degrees.

  • Career Week

    Each spring COMPASS hosts a weeklong series of events designed to boost a student’s knowledge of the working world and how to get started in it. In addition to VIP visitors who actively recruit, SEU Alumni offer their insights in a panel discussion, guest speakers present on a variety of topic relevant to today’s workplace.
