Our Services

The Hegi Family Career Development Center at SMU is dedicated to serving the needs of SMU students and alumni and assisting employers in reaching qualified candidates from SMU.  The Career Development Center staff guides and encourages students and alumni in the development of skills necessary for lifelong career management and offers opportunities for employers to recruit students through campus events and online resources.

Counselors work with students at all stages of their career development process - from choosing a major to evaluating a job offer. Counseling may facilitate exploration activities, focusing career goals, developing effective resume and cover letters, graduate school research, and job search strategies. The Hegi Career Center also has an active on-campus recruiting and job posting program through Handshake.
