Career Services

The Center for Career Excellence and Community Outreach exists to assist and advise students as they transition through their college experience into career placement.  Our eight-semester action plan begins on day one at PSUGA.  Students here have a unique opportunity to faculty, staff, and employers who are interested in their success.  We accomplish this through a three prong process: 

#WeAre SHADOWING:  The opportunities for undergraduate students to get a taste of the real world is possible through a shadowing experience.  By connecting with a LION LINK mentor, GA students can spend a few hours or a few weeks learning more about particular career fields and places of employment. 

#WeAre INTERNING:  Today, internships are KEY to gaining employment after graduation.  Successful GA grads have interned in a variety of Fortune 500s, non-profit and educational settings including:  US Steel, The FBI, and the US Naval Academy.   

#WeAre WORKING:  With over 800,000 Nittany Lions worldwide (and the largest single population of alum here in Allegheny County), you can find a PSU grad working most anywhere.  On average, GA grads are employed within their field of study within the first six months after graduation.
