About the CEC

Simmons building

Preparing our students to build successful careers and lead meaningful lives has been Simmons' mission for over 100 years.

The Career Education Center (CEC) supports this mission by providing career education for lifelong career development. We help undergraduate students, graduate students and alumnae/i develop the skills and knowledge they need to make informed decisions about their careers in preparation for life's work.

Our philosophy of career development is based on our 5 Step Career Development Model which guides our programs and work with all the Simmons populations we serve. Whether you are about to begin your undergraduate studies, have just graduated with a master's degree, or are an alum approaching a career or life transition, the Career Education Center can make a difference.

Scope of Service

The CEC serves as the main career resource for all on-the-ground Simmons undergraduate and graduate students. We also support the online students for the Library & Information Science graduate program. Additionally, all Simmons students can access the information available through our website as well as the online job board, Handshake.

If you are a graduate student in a Simmons online program other than Library & Information Science, please visit the page Online @ Simmons for information about the career resources and services available to you and specific to your program.
