Graduate with purpose

Our Career Development team works to help all students be competitive candidates for their first-choice destinations following college. We offer one-on-one appointments, on-campus interviews with potential employers, group workshops and academic courses specifically designed to prepare you for an internship or observe a career path you’re interested in first-hand.

We’ll help you find and follow through on landing an internship for academic credit, real work experience and professional mentorship, and—for many of our students—a job after graduation.
