The SPP Office of Career Services and Alumni Relations exists to support SPP students and alumni on their professional development, articulate to potential partners the benefits of the SPP degrees and the strengths SPP graduates bring with them to the world of policy practice and engagement, gather and publicize data about student and alumni internship and job placements, and serve the CEU public policy alumni community.
What we do
We partner closely with students as they engage in the process of exploring options and charting their individual career path. We develop strategic relationships with potential partners in the global public policy community. We stay connected with our alumni after graduation, following their career progression and helping them remain connected to the SPP community.
How we do it
- Services: We provide support through channels such as the professional development course "Job Search Basics and Beyond"; individual career consultations and group workshops; and opportunities to learn from professionals (including alumni) working within specific fields and organizations.
- Information Sharing: We share information about job and internship opportunities in the policy realm via the SPP Career Services Newsletter for SPP students. SPP students and alumni also have access to CEU's career services platform, career>next, and participate in the university's annual career fair.
- Partnerships: SPP Career Services works closely with partners within CEU, including colleagues in the central Career Services Office and at the CEU Business School. SPP Career Services cultivates SPP's network of potential employers and internship hosts, articulating the benefits of the SPP degrees and the strengths SPP graduates bring with them to the world of policy practice and engagement.
