Center for Career & Professional Development
The Center for Career & Professional Development prepares our students and alumni for life after college by helping individuals understand their personal and professional values and interests and acquire the skills necessary to obtain professional employment or admission into graduate school.
Attention Students: We will be launching a new platform called Handshake, to replace Hawks Hunt after June 30th. Handshake will be used to find internships and jobs, CCPD events, resources, internship registration and more! Career opportunities will be populated for the start of Fall 2018. If you are searching for Summer 2018 internships or employment, please call the office at 401.254.3224 to make an appointment with your advisor.
