Career Clusters

Career Clusters are our new way of organizing our career development strategy around industries while maintaining ongoing communication with academic departments. Career Development Specialists are assigned a cluster (e.g., Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math; Business & Communication; Arts & Humanities; etc). They work with students interested in those fields, develop hiring strategies with adopted employers, and work with faculty representatives closely aligned with those particular career interests. We moved from major-centric strategies to a more industry-centric way of organizing our work.

12 PROGRAMS Conducted

aligned to the various clusters including industry networking events and “How to find an internship in…” workshops.
