Career Development Center

Find Work

The Career Development team is dedicated to excellence and excited about advancing the mission of the Heller School. One simple way to describe our work is we educate, advise, and connect: 


Through career education programs and workshops, we provide opportunities to develop and hone key readiness skills such as networking, resume and cover letter development, interviewing techniques, salary negotiation, and using LinkedIn, DevEx, and GoingGlobal. Additionally, we conduct programs that explore careers across a variety of sectors, highlight key hiring organizations, and feature alumni who provide an in-depth look into their respective careers and backgrounds.


We help students clarify their professional interests, develop a greater understanding of the world of work, and illuminate how their experiences, skills and Heller School education fit with their future career goals. We do this through one-on-one advising appointments, which can be scheduled through the Handshake platform, as well as in drop-in hours.


We are always connecting with alumni to cultivate relationships that lead to jobs, internships, and other professional opportunities for students and other alumni. We run a variety of experiential treks to key cities such as New York, Washington, D.C., and Boston, where students gain face-to-face time with alumni and employers.
