Career Planning

The Office of Career Planning Department assists students with all phases of career development from career guidance and job search training to resume advice, interview skills, and professional networking. Our department provides career counseling and job search resources to assist students and alumni with making informed career development decisions both face-to-face and aided by technology. One of our strongest technology platforms is LionsLINK. LionsLINK is the new career management interface provided by the University for all students, recent graduates, and alumni. Not only does LionsLINK bring employers with internships and employment opportunities within reach, but the program also supports our emerging Professional Mentor Network. This initiative is being supported by Career Planning and our Alumni Relations Department and it seeks to connect alumni to alumni and, importantly, alumni and other professionals to our current students. Please contact the Career Planning Office for more information about the Professional Mentor Network.

In addition to direct services we provide to students and alumni, the Career Planning staff maintains active participation in various regional and national professional associations. This activity enables us to better support the work of our faculty and academic advisors with labor market research insights, innovative educational programming, and best practices in transitioning successfully into the world of work.

For further information, please access the Career Planning Department website, http://www.saintleo.edu or call 352-588-8247.

Saint Leo University sponsors on-campus career fairs, held throughout the academic year.  These networking events are open to all students and alumni.

Information on the specific student services offered at each Continuing Education Center can be obtained from the Center Director or academic advisor. This may include student chapters of professional organizations, services available through the University's website, and/or referral services to local agencies.

Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges

Saint Leo University is a current member of the Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges Degree Network System (DNS).  The DNS is a group of institutions selected to provide servicemembers and their eligible family members the opportunity to complete college degrees  without losing credit because of frequent changes in duty station.  For example, many courses offered by member institutions have two-way guaranteed transferability to provide more flexibility and options in order to satisfy degree requirements. The SOC DNS Student Agreement issued to all eligible students at member institutions provides a complete evaluation of servicemember's prior learning, including courses from other colleges and universities, military training courses, military occupational experience, nationally-recognized exams, and other non-traditional credits, as well as clearly identifying requirements for completing the degree.  Current SOC Degree Network System membership and participating degree information is available at http://www.soc.asscu.org. 

Although Saint Leo University is currently a member of the SOC Degree Network System, membership or participating degrees may change at any time.
