The Office of Career Services is a resource to help you design your future. Career Services offers individual assistance on all aspects of career planning and decision-making, including: self-assessment; choice of major and career field; exploration of career-related interests; pursuit of internships and employment; and application to professional and graduate school.
Graduate students also are encouraged to consult about navigating careers inside or outside academia.
Opportunities to connect abound. Career Services hosts events that bring together alumni and practitioners in many fields to engage with students about careers. Career fairs and workshops on topics such as working in the arts and STEM allow you to explore options. Campus recruiting visits and meetups, such as through HireTigers, open doors to career prospects.
Internships and Alumni
