Career counseling is more than just helping you find a job. Career development is a lifelong process which requires discernment, planning, and the acquisition of needed skills and/or credentials. It is important that you start your own life planning process early and continue throughout your time at seminary. Our career counselors can help you to begin this process and offer valuable coaching while you're a student and after graduation.
Alternative Job Boards
In addition to the Fuller Job board, the office of Call Discernment has also provided a list of alternative sites that are useful for career planning and job searching for students and alumni. The job boards listed are based on the three schools of Fuller Theological Seminary.
PhD Dossier Circulation
The Vocational Discernment office keeps dossiers on file for PhD students. If needed, confidential copies of recommendation letters may be mailed to employers. These letters are typically mailed and so we ask for two weeks notice should this service be needed. This is a service for PhD students only.
To request this service, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 626-584-5358.
The Office of Call Discernment offers online resources to help students and alumni build resumes, curriculum vitea, and cover letters. In addition, students and alumni can come in to talk with a counselor about improving their documents.
