You have big aspirations—we’re here to help make them real. The Career Development Center (CDC) teaches you the skills and resources required to take your ambitions beyond graduation day into the working world.

The CDC can help you polish your resume, find an internship, prepare for an interview, negotiate your salary, and can help you connect with a number of other resources. Our staff members are dedicated to helping all undergraduate and graduate students make their way into a fulfilling and successful professional future.

Students and alumni can meet individually with an advisor, attend a workshop, or connect with alumni and employers at one of our job fairs or industry panels. We leverage our downtown Boston location to foster and maintain relationships with top employers, allowing students to develop strong networks of professional contacts.
