The CDC is back and in person!

Feel free to stop by for quick questions. We are also offering the following options this fall:

  • In person Drop-ins: Come meet with a CDC Peer Advisor Monday- Friday 12-4pm. Drop-ins give you the opportunity to ask quick questions, get your resume or cover letter critiqued, talk about a job offer, learn about Handshake, and more. Drop-ins don’t require an appointment; instead, you’ll be seen on a first come, first-served basis.   
  • In person and virtual appointments: You can schedule appointments to meet one on one with a CDC staff member through your Handshake account. Appointments can be held either in person or virtual through the Handshake platform. If you need help or have any questions, stop by the CDC office or call us at 508-831-5260.

Appointment Topics Include: Alumni Career Advising, Application Materials, Discovering Majors & Careers, Graduate School, Internship/Co-op/Job Search, Job Offers, Networking & Career Fairs, and Interview Prep.

  • In person and virtual events:  There are always programs and employer events happening both in person and virtually.  Follow this link to go to our events page in Handshake and search for events. Information on how to access/attend the sessions will be included in the event. Keep checking back as new events become available. 

If you do not see an option above that accommodates your needs, please email and we are happy to work with you to set up something for you.

At the Career Development Center (CDC) you will find connections, resources and expert advice to optimize your search and yield results.  From choosing a major and exploring career options to resume writing and interview preparation, the CDC is your  “go to” collaborator and coach for career success.  To start, you can:
