Careers & Internships

Before Graduation

The Georgetown McDonough Undergraduate Program Office works to enhance classroom learning with co-curricular and extra-curricular career development activities to help students compete in a variety of industries. From our Professional Development Series to our acclaimed Entrepreneurship Fellows Program and First Year Seminar, we provide students the opportunity to learn tools, skills, and knowledge to effectively improve the management of organizations. 

In addition, all students who attend Georgetown University have access to the Cawley Career Education Center.

The Cawley Career Education Centerengages Georgetown students at the crossroads of academic learning and professional life. The professional staff is committed to helping students identify meaningful ways to apply the talents they have honed through study and service while at Georgetown to the world of work.

Students learn about themselves and future careers by working with career counselors, attending career development events, performing mock interviews, participating in employer-sponsored information events, and interviewing on campus with employers for internships and full-time employment.

After Graduation

Graduates of Georgetown McDonough generally enter into full-time employment, primarily in financial services either in investment banking or working in financial capacities in non-banking fields. Students also enter the consulting, accounting and retail industries. To find out more about where students go, view our Senior Class Survey.

Many Georgetown McDonough students intern during the summer after their junior year. Again, many students intern in financial services companies, but also intern at consulting firms, media and entertainment firms, as well as government agencies and not-for-profit organizations.
