Prepare for Your Appointment: To receive the most benefit from your appointment with a career advisor, we ask that you:

  • Complete your Handshake profile and log on.
  • Do some career exploration on your own.
    This might include reviewing the Exploring Majors and Careers area of our Web site; preparing a draft of your resume or bringing along a copy of an internship or job listing of interest.

Cancellations: We request that you make every effort to cancel your appointment at least 24 hours in advance.

No Show: Missing your scheduled appointment will be documented as a “No Show.”  If this happens twice within a semester, you will not be allowed to schedule further appointments for the semester.  However, you will be able to meet with a Career Advisor on a “Walk-in” basis only for the semester.

Lateness Policy for Appointments: Arriving more than 15 minutes late for a scheduled individual appointment will result in an automatic rescheduling of your appointment. 
Professional Dress:  Although it is not necessary to dress in a suit for your appointment with a career counselor, we recommend that you dress professionally for mock interviews, networking events, career/internship fairs and other employer events.

Cancellations / No-Shows / Lateness
Alumni will be monitored under the same policies as recently set for students with regard to cancellations, no-shows and lateness.

@GetHiredStJohns is the official page of Career Services at St. John’s University on LinkedIn. The page compliments the ASPIRE Mentor and C3: Creating Career Connections programs providing a forum for building strong student-alumni relationships, as well as peer-to-peer connections.

As alumni, employers and friends, we are asking you to volunteer to assist St. John’s students and fellow grads through the career exploration and job search processes. @GetHiredStJohns is not a job placement service. Rather, it’s an opportunity for students to build a network of connections, to gather information about employment trends, job functions, salary expectations, effective job/internship searches, and the career paths of St. John’s alumni. 

Joining @GetHiredStJohns on LinkedIn is simple:

  • Create or login into your LinkedIn Profile
  • Search ‘Groups’ for @GetHiredStJohns
  • Request to Join
