Information for Parents

USD Career Services is a centralized resource for USD students, alumni and employers. We encourage parents to share these resources with their students.

Services and Resources for Students and Alumni

Career Counseling

We assist students who are undecided about their major or career direction, and we encourage students to review our Four Year Plan and meet with a career counselor to tailor their career preparation and activities to their particular skills and interests.

Graduate School Planning

We assist students with graduate school planning in two ways: through individualized career counseling sessions and by sponsoring an annual Graduate School Fair.

Job Search Strategies

We help students with all facets of the job search, from resume writing to interviewing skills, identifying employers to professional networking.

Career Events

We conduct workshops and sponsor events to introduce students to employers, alumni, and parents participating in on-campus job fairs and information panels. These events help students with career choices and with making contacts that lead to internships and jobs.

On-Campus Interviewing

Each semester, USD Career Services hosts on–campus interviews that offer current USD seniors, graduate students, and recent alumni the opportunity to interview with a variety of organizations. 

Knowledge Transfer Program

The USD Parents Association along with the Office of Parent Relations has created a program that puts students in direct contact with parents of other USD students. Additional information about this great networking opportunity is available on the Parent Relations Knowledge Transfer Program.

Post a Job or Internship

Parents of USD students and alumni are encouraged to use ToreroLink to post job and internships for USD students and alums.

Career Destinations: Survey of USD Graduates

USD conducts an annual survey to learn about the career choices made by undergraduate students who were awarded bachelor's degrees during the previous academic year. See the survey results.

Thanks so much for everything! I wasn't really sure what I was doing until I stopped by your office and now I feel like I've really got a direction. I appreciate all of the follow-up too. Sophomore, Political Science
