Welcome to the Careers section of the SILS Website!
These resources will help students and alumni find career resources, types of employment, and opportunities for networking. This site can also help employers navigate how to post jobs, visit campus, and meet with students through formal and informal networking events.
- Functions: What are those things I enjoy most in my job? (e.g. information and knowledge creation; organization and description; preservation; analysis; evaluation; management; communication) What classes and subjects have been my favorites and why?
- People: How do I interact with people? What communities (e.g. youth, children, students, working adults, seniors) do I like to work with as colleagues or clients? Do I prefer to work mostly with people or do I prefer working mostly by myself?
- Setting: Do I want a work setting that is academic, public, non-profit, government, or corporate? Do I want a setting more highly-structured or more informal? Is it a quiet environment or busy setting?
