Student Veterans Center

It’s your career.  Yours and no one else’s.

What are you doing right now to prepare yourself to excel as you transition from being a student to being an employee after having made that grand walk across the graduation stage?  How will you become job-ready and properly positioned to take advantage of the right opportunity when it arises? 

Within the Xavier Student Veterans Center, you have at your disposal a wealth of knowledge, experience and expertise to guide you through the process and prepare you to meet the challenges a career brings.  Whether it’s a simple career exploration exercise to try to determine what you want to do when you graduate, an in-depth resume review or rewrite, a LinkedIn profile assessment, access to our extensive business connections within the economy or myriad other career-related topics, we can help you get there. 

We have standing appointment times for career-related matters available through Handshake from 9am to 11am, Monday through Friday, or you are welcome to call, email or simply stop by to schedule an appointment or receive assistance on the spot.  Whatever your needs, we are flexible, ready and able to make your career transition as seamless as possible.
