[MUSIC PLAYING] At Spartanburg Methodist, students have access to a lot of career development opportunities. 

We have career counseling with career counseling staff and services through our student development office. We also have a faculty member who works with students to identify and search out internship opportunities. He partners with them to prepare them for that. 

The beautiful thing about being in a smaller school like SMC is there is a condensed faculty with a lot of connections throughout the existing community. So we can reach out to people year after year and find opportunities for our students. And we do that quite well here. 

We have a class that meets every Tuesday morning. Not for credit, just for students who are interested in coming to really nail these things. 

It's not a class that you would pick first out of all the other classes. But once you get in, it was definitely something that you would want every student to go to. 

This is a really unique college in linking career and academics. As a freshman, you're going to sit down and take a few assessments to establish areas of strength and hopefully try to narrow down the amount of job opportunities that are out there for you. 

And I think this school definitely helped me figure out what I wanted to do within the faculty. My advisor, she definitely sat down with me, had a one-on-one and actually looked over my classes and that really helped me veer into what I actually want to do. 

Our number one goal here at SMC is for you to maximize your educational experience. And if you leave here with a clear idea of what you want to do next, and you leave here with experience and education, we have met that goal.
