Career Communities

Our career communities help you explore how your academic interests fit into a variety of industries and sectors. Each community provides job and internship search assistance, employer engagement events, and focused career fairs and networking opportunities specifically related to their community’s employers and hiring practices in all sectors. A student advisory board consisting of both graduate and undergraduate students helps determine employers of interest and the kind of engagement events hosted. A dedicated Career Consultant leads each community and sends tailored weekly community newsletters featuring hot jobs and internships, upcoming events, job/internship search advice, employer and alumni spotlights, and blog posts.
