Associate Director for Career Development

Joe Scott

As an Associate Director for Career Development, I assist in the development and maintenance of career development operations within Career Exploration and Success. I manage and perform a wide range of counseling and programming functions as well as managing liaison relationships with key academic and campus departments in the STEM cluster. My responsibilities include career advising, developing and presenting programs and building employer relationships.

Prior to becoming an Associate Director for Career Development, I was a Career Development Specialist with Career Exploration and Success. In this role, I provided career counseling to students and alumni on various issues including career decision-making, experiential learning opportunities, full-time professional job search strategies, and graduate/advanced degree study. I also designed and facilitated career development seminars on a variety of topics.

I have an M.S. Ed. in Counselor Education from the State University of New York at Oneonta and a B.S. in Psychology from Union College in Schenectady, NY.

My advice to students is to utilize the programs and services offered by Career Exploration and Success early and often during your college years. Try to obtain as much experience outside of the classroom as possible through, part-time/summer jobs, internships, volunteer experience, community service, and student organizations. These experiences will be extremely valuable in preparing you for life after college.
