A Johnny's Journey

Start fresh. Start now.

University Career Services serves as a bridge between students' college experience and life after St. John’s. Starting the first year and continuing beyond graduation, we are here to help students explore who they are and their career options, connect their experience — whether it is academic, campus involvement and engagement, internships or work experience, to careers or graduate school – and achieve their post-graduation goals.

To us, it’s a journey - A Johnny’s Journey to Success. And each of our students creates their own unique one.

Employers are looking for new St. John’s University graduates to be Career Ready — meaning they know how to use their talents, strengths, and interests. The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) has identified key competencies for career readiness.

Throughout your journey seek out experiences that will give you opportunities to practice these competencies, keep track of the outcomes you achieve while doing so, and turn these into great action statements for your future resumes!

Below is a toolkit of resources to help you navigate your journey.
