Students

Troy University students have access to valuable career resources to aid them in selecting their major, launching their internship and job search and develop their professional skills to be successful in their future career.  

Self-assessment is the first step in the career planning process. TROY Career Services offers current students two on-line tools to help identify their interests, skills, personality, and values and strives to match them with the student's educational and career goals. The results of these assessments aid career staff in discussing students' potential majors and jobs. 

Major Exploration Fairs are held once a year and students are encouraged to meet faculty from every TROY major and minor and discuss with them careers related to their program. 

Proper presentation of initial documents used to apply for jobs are vital in making a good first impression with employers. TROY Career Services guides students in developing an effective resume, CV, cover letter, and portfolio. Our career services team also provides professional resume feedback. 

Our career services team offers face to face mock interview sessions as well as online video mock interviews. Students can access Big Interview online where career staff can review and provide feedback on recorded interview sessions. 

Students are taught to wear professional attire to interviews and provided with several opportunities to visit the Career Closet for gently used, free professional clothing items. 

Career staff members are available to discuss best practices in effective job searching. Students have access to job postings and internships across the U.S. and abroad through an in-house career management system, Handshake. Students are invited to multiple career fairs each semester ranging from the All Majors Fair both in the Spring and Fall to department-specific fairs such as Education-Teach Fair, Technology Fair, Business Fair, Student-Athlete Networking Mixer, Health Fair, and more! 
For an in-depth study of values, interests, personality and skills and how those relate to specific careers, career classes are offered across a variety of platforms catering to all TROY students.
