To:    The College Community

FROM:           Dr. Christopher J. Adams, Vice President for Student Affairs

SUBJECT:     New Online Career Portal- Purple Briefcase – Launched at the College

The Office of Career Services is proud to announce the availability of Purple Briefcase.  This online career platform allows employers to connect with Suffolk’s students and alumni as they search for career and internship opportunities. It also offers an extensive range of support services like career chat, videos, networking tips and other tools to help students and alumni that are engaged in the job search process. In alignment with Institutional Goal #1-Student Success, this is an advanced career networking and planning tool that will support individuals in finding a great position that will further develop their skills and work experience.

Purple Briefcase will be an important resource for information about career-related events and career exploration tools. Students will be able to develop individual profiles focused on their interests, skills, and career aspirations. The profile will also serve as their online resume for potential employers. Most importantly, Purple Briefcase is the main platform that the College will now use to post internships, job opportunities, and other important career information. We encourage everyone to visit the new site and learn more at www.sunysuffolk.edu/purplebriefcase.

For further information on how you may use this program and integrate this tool as part of your courses with our students, please do not hesitate to contact Tania Velazquez ’96, College Director for Career Services, at velazqt@sunysuffolk.edu.
