The USP Career Services Department works in concert with the University’s faculty and staff to provide career planning and placement assistance services to all USP students and alumni. An electronic job board, USP Careers, allows employers to list internships and part-time and full-time career opportunities. The system also permits direct-hire employers to download the resumes of those students and alumni who are registered in the system. Additionally, the system allows registered students and alumni to be contacted about various career-related events both on and off campus. Another program provides networking with alumni through a series of USP Alumni Career Panels to allow undergraduates to meet and learn more about the many career fields which USP alumni are working. The Senior Survey provides a listing of where new graduates are employed and/or attending graduate and professional school. The department prides itself in providing individual service to each and every USP student and/or alumni who utilizes the department. All students are encouraged to begin working with the USP Career Services Department soon after entering the University
