Career Development

From help choosing the right major – or switching to a better fit – to internships and co-ops, résumé building, interview training, and job listings in your field, our goal is to connect you with the services and resources you need to map out the career you envision.

At the University of New Haven, we re-imagined how career development should work and created an approach that is integrative instead of merely transactional. That means future career success is built right into your entire academic experience.

It also means that everyone in the University is involved in Career Development, not just a few dedicated staff members. It really does take a village, in our opinion, to sow the seeds of a successful career — from faculty members who design career-focused curricula, to Resident Assistants who are intensely engaged in setting up career workshops and seminars, to the many campus events where career development is always a presence, to mini career fairs that are discipline-focused instead of come-one-come-all events. And that’s only a small sample of what you can expect.

For undergraduates, graduate students, alumni, and employers, Career Development is more than an office at the University of New Haven. It’s a philosophy — and it’s our culture.
