Let’s Get Started on Your Future Today!

The best time to start planning your career is right now and our Career Services team offers support and guidance to make your per­sonal goals a reality.

Our Career Services team will guide you through a step-by-step process to learn more about your unique needs and how we can connect them to tangible career milestones. We’ll introduce you to our free, online career assessment tool. Together, we can use the results in a one-on-one career counselling session to help you determine the right educational path and develop a personalized career action plan.

Services

Our Individual Advising Sessions, Career Planning System, and Career Resources are available to students, alumni, and even those who are just considering Granite State College.

You can request appointments online or call us directly: 603-822-5403.

Our one-on-one advising sessions are 100% customized to your needs. Our focus can range from helping you select the right major to supporting you through a career transition (or all of the above!). From there, we’ll help you expand your levels of experience and build a portfolio of the professional essentials: resumes, cover letters, and more.

Our Career Planning System (Kuder Journey) provides reliable tools to assess your interests, skills, and workplace values. It’s a 24/7 online system that can help you explore career fields, prepare you for job searches, and connect you to new opportunities.

At Granite State College, our community is comprised of working adult students so we design our degree programs to integrate with your career and goals. There are several types of courses at Granite State College that incorporate work experience.

The most common types of opportunities you’ll encounter at Granite State College include:

  • Internships
    During internships, students work at a company, school, agency, or organization on an assignment or project that lasts up to an academic term in duration.
  • Practicums
    Similar to an internship, a practicum is a course that requires both classroom time and several hours of work in the field at a company, school, agency, or organization.
  • Integrative Capstones
    This is the final course students take in their degree program. The coursework integrates the concepts, outcomes, and knowledge gained throughout the duration of the degree program, with a culminating project, research, or internship experience that demonstrates what the student has learned.
Our team can offer resources and advice to help you create beautiful and effective resumes and cover letters, develop a professional online presence, and give you tips and tricks for networking, using LinkedIn, and more!

B.S. in Digital and Social Media

Before working with Career Services, I figured my resume was fine. It just wasn’t great. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that there were things I could do to make immediate improvements that I have since applied to my resume!

B.S. in Individualized Studies, Diversity & Communications

Four months following graduation, I was hired as a Director of Diversity & Inclusion. This was a HUGE career bump for me. More importantly, I’m doing exactly what I envisioned myself doing when I started at Granite State.
