 Career Development
& Experiential
 Learning




Think of your career path as a journey—an adventure that begins the moment you set foot on campus. Like a true adventurer, you let curiosity and passion guide you. The traits you nurture and the experiences you gain along the way prepare you for the world of work.

At Career Development and Experiential Learning, we help you navigate your career path with confidence. We are your guides—giving advice, providing resources, organizing events, letting you know about extra-curricular activities and supporting experiential learning opportunities, such as placements and co-ops. We ask questions that will get you thinking about the transition from classroom to career.

It’s summer-job-search time

To find a summer job that’s a good fit, you should begin your search in the late winter or early spring. Career Development and Experiential Learning has tips and strategies to guide you along the way.


Learn in the real world

We help faculty organize experiential learning (EL) opportunities for students in a variety of programs. Students in our Human Resources program partnered with community organizations to support their HR needs. Learn about their experience; then contact us to plan your EL project.
