Connecting passion with purpose
Career Communities support you in connecting your academic interests to your professional development by providing you with:
- Career Exploration opportunities within a community
- Career Connections within the community: faculty, staff, alumnae/i, employers, students, and other professionals
- Career Development skills that are transferable to any career community
By joining you will receive career information, internship and job summaries, event listings, and career tips, all relevant to CMAD.
Joining the CMAD Career Community will open your eyes to new career paths, job titles, industry information and opportunities you may not have explored before. Career Education Center Coaches and Peer Career Assistants (PCAs) are available to meet with you 1-1 to discuss your interests, passions and strengths and how each of your unique qualities will set you up for success in your chosen field.
As you start to update your application materials (resume and cover letter), portfolio or LinkedIn page, you may want to meet with the CEC staff to have a second set of eyes review your content. The earlier you meet with us, the better, so don’t be a stranger!
The best way to schedule your 1-1 virtual coaching appointment is through Handshake. As a student, you already have a Handshake profile, so you can find a time that works for you!
