Appointments may be made to discuss the following with a career counselor: resume cover letter review, interviewing skills, job searching, career decision making, and selecting and applying to graduate school.
Workshops are offered on resume and cover letter writing, interviewing and job searching all throughout the year. View the workshop schedule. There are also special workshops scheduled and targeted specifically for alumni.
The Career Development Center hosts a variety of on and off campus career and job fairs and events open to alumni. Learn more about the job fairs and events.
As an alumnus you can logon using your Banner ID as your username and your last name (capital first letter) as your password. If you have not logged into ORCA since July 1, 2011, you need to submit an alumni request using your Banner ID. Banner ID is required. You may click here for Banner ID lookup. If you do not have or do not remember your network login credentials contact the help desk (716-878-4357) for your Banner ID. Graduates prior to 1/82 please call the CDC.
As an employer you may post your job, internship and volunteer opportunities online and source resumes on ORCA (The Online Resource for Career Advancement). After the position expiration date, they will also be archived so that you may open, close, edit, and re-post as needed. Many employers find it most convenient to manage their own postings and to source resumes through ORCA (The Online Resource for Career Advancement). Simply, create a free ORCA employer account to list your openings and when prompted to "request access," select Buffalo State College.
You can also participate in a Recruitment Event on the Buffalo State campus: Many employers find it convenient to reach out to students in many ways: staffing information tables in our Student Union, presenting a group information session, interviewing on-campus, and/or attending our job fairs. For more information on any of these opportunities please contact the CDC at (716) 878-5811 or complete the Employer Information Form.
Join the Buffalo State Career Development Center (CDC) group to connect with students and alumni about careers, job searching and opportunities available at your organization. This is also a great way to connect with fellow alumni.
