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.
COMPASS: The Center for Calling & Career is the on-campus career service office that provides you, as an SEU student, with career exploration experiences and resources that prepare you for your life after college. The COMPASS teams include career coaches and student ambassadors who will assist you throughout your college career years. They are also available as a resource long after graduation.
You will have the opportunity to discover, cultivate, practice and engage your divine design in academic experiences, clubs, missions trips, internships, employment or graduate school.
The COMPASS office welcomes employers to schedule a visit to our beautiful campus for a personalized VIP Day. A VIP Day can include classroom presentations, lunch in SEU’s beautiful Tuscana Ristorante, connecting with SEU students, and opportunities to discover your next intern or new hire. We also offer events throughout the year.
Please contact the COMPASS office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 863.667.5157 for more information.
Here are just a few ways COMPASS helps our students and graduates find both jobs and personal fulfillment in their careers. Contact COMPASS to start your internship or job search.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
