What are Career Communities?

No matter what you choose to study, you have many career paths in front of you, and Career Services can help you explore and narrow the options through our Career Communities. 

Career Communities are groups of careers that share common interests, skills, qualifications, and activities. If you are interested in one career option, you may likely be interested in others within the same Community. By joining the Career Communities, you can: 

  • Pursue career goals that match your interests,
  • Major in what you love and get the internship and job you want,
  • Connect with people, information, and resources to explore interests and opportunities.
