Careers and Internships
McDonough Office of Professional Development Programming
Today’s students have more career options than ever. In fact, many jobs available today didn’t exist even five years ago. As such, students must be acutely aware of their own strengths, skills, motivations and values to develop a sustainable career plan that meets the needs of an ever-changing job market. The McDonough Office of Professional Development supports students in this process of self-discovery, career education and network-building to create a career that will carry them throughout life.

Career coaches are available through the Office of Professional Development to assist students in the process of discovery through reflection. Coaches use on-line assessments, individual coaching techniques and goal setting to help students gather information about their skills, strengths, values and motivations, thus empowering students to create their own unique individual career goals and strategies.

In addition to reflecting on one’s own strengths, skills, values and motivations, students must also learn about the wide variety of careers available upon graduation.

"It’s not what you know, it’s who you know,” as the saying goes.
