Assistant Director

Veteran Career Services

Hi! My name is Jennifer Pluta, Assistant Director for Veteran Career Services at Syracuse University. I am responsible for the career pathways of Syracuse University’s student veteran population.

At Veteran Career Services, I want to help you discover your passions, explore your options, build your skills, and connect you to opportunities early in your college career. Wherever you are, I am here to get you started and support you with all your career needs.

I provide many services that not only help you when applying for internships and jobs, but can also help you when choosing an academic major or determining your next steps, such as grad school.

In this role, I also develop and manage employers who seek to connect with veterans as part of their recruiting strategy. Through these employer relationships I am able to connect you directly with top organizations.

You can read my full bio on the staff page or if you have any questions please email me directly at
