Career

Professional development doesn’t start when you need a job. It starts now. That doesn’t mean you need to know the career you want after college. It means you should seek opportunities to develop skills that will serve you well in any career (like public speaking, writing, interpersonal, and analytic skills), explore what’s out there, connect with alumni, learn job search strategies, build experience by asking for more responsibility or new projects at work, seek leadership positions in clubs or volunteer organizations, and lay the groundwork for internships.

Explore different sectors and industries by checking out our Career Communities in the tab above.  Here, you will find information on the sector, student and alumni stories and advice, job and internship postings, relevant events, and many resources to help you learn more about opportunities and outcomes in that sector.  Join as many career communities as you’d like to explore!

Your SBS Career & Professional Development team can help you know yourself, explore your options, build your skills, develop a job search strategy, and connect with alumni mentors, so don’t be a stranger.  Come meet with us!
