Finding a job can require hours of preparation and research, just like higher education. While Strayer University students are accustomed to putting in the time and effort, sometimes a little support can go a long way.
 
The Strayer University Career Center offers a number of resources designed to support students’ career needs and professional development. “These services have been carefully selected to give students and alumni an edge in achieving their career goals,” says Margie Decker, executive director of the University Career Center. “Whether you are looking to advance with your current company,transition to a different field or enter the job market for the first time,the UCC can help.” Like many Strayer University students, Marcus Rahming (BBA’12) wanted to develop the skills necessary to contribute to the business world in a more meaningful way. “I was unsure of what to expect when returning to school, but Strayer University exposed me to a high-demand industry and prepared me to work in various areas of procurement and contract administration,” he says. After graduating magna cum laude, Rahming landed interviews with five companies and recently accepted a position in strategic sourcing with the State of Georgia. “The resources offered by theUniversityCareerCenter helped build my resume and interviewing skills.I was even complimented in an interview with theGeorgia TransmissionCorporation on my resume and presentation,” Rahming says.“Once skeptical of the benefits of higher education,I am now a strong advocate for it.”
