Southeast Missouri State University

Welcome, Southeast Parents & Families!

As a parent or family member, you play a pivotal role in helping your student(s) explore career options and eventually pursue their post-graduation plans. At Career Services, we firmly believe that a student’s career choices must ultimately be made by the student alone, but parents and families can certainly help by offering support and feedback while encouraging your student to utilize our services.

For more information, we have provided the following resources and encourage you to review the rest of our Career Services website in order to assist you as you navigate your role as co-captain in your student's career journey.

Our Services

What We Do

Career Services is dedicated to assisting students with major and career exploration, internship strategizing, career planning and graduate school preparation. Throughout the academic year, we offer a variety of career workshops and events as well as career fairs designed to connect students with prospective employers.  In addition, the office maintains a range of online career resources including REDConnect, Southeast’s online job search service.  We believe that career development is a process, and advise students to begin early and take ownership of their career decisions.

What Career Services Does Not Do

The role of Career Services is not to act as an employment or placement agency. We provide students with the tools, resources and opportunities to identify part and full-time jobs, internships, and appropriate graduate schools.  Ultimately, students are responsible for their placement or outcome.
