Career and Professional Development
Every year hundreds of professionals engage on campus through a variety of career programs, classroom projects and speaking events.
Professional development is integrated in the classroom to provide early exposure to professionals and a sophisticated understanding of industry.
- Meet the Firms
A distinct set of firms hold information sessions each semester, offering the opportunity to proactively engage in understanding company values, internship and entry level opportunities, and hiring processes and timelines.
View a list of participating firms on our calendar. All students are invited to attend these one-hour information sessions. See event details and register in Handshake.
- Career Panels
Each semester we offer six or seven discipline-specific panels providing networking with alumni and employer partners. Following each panel, students have the opportunity to join a roundtable discussion with the panelists. View upcoming panel dates and details on our calendar.
