The Career Development Office (CDO) works closely with students and alumni to guide their searches for rewarding careers. The mechanics of searching for fulfilling employment vary depending upon the class year of the student and the type of employment he or she seeks. However, the fundamental approach we take in CDO never wavers. The first task is to assist students in assessing their goals, then in researching the range of positions that may best satisfy those goals, then in the mechanics of applying for jobs. Depending upon the factors listed above, this could simply be resume advice, followed by participation in our fall or spring interview programs, or advice on networking, informational interviewing, and fellowship applications.
