Office of Career Development and Engagement

The mission of the Office of Career Development and Engagement is to foster career development that educates, inspires confidence and empowers students and alumni to clarify and attain their goals.

Our vision is to assist students and alumni in discovering and exploring possibilities, engage in meaningful experiences and develop the strategies necessary in making mindful career decisions.

The counselors in the Office of Career Development and Engagement provide students and alumni with a strong foundation upon which to learn about their skills and interests, and articulate them confidently in résumés, cover letters, interviews and personal statements; identify and explore career options that are of interest; and implement an effective strategy to attain their desired career path.

"We heard from tons of attorneys that practice in different areas of the law — education, tax, corporate, employment — and I was able to speak to some current SLU Law students. Since I’ve gotten back (from St. Louis), every time I have a chance to talk to Ellen Burti, I thank her for forwarding me the email to apply."
