Alumni: Launch Your Career

Whether you are in the process of a career transition or are just looking for professional growth within your current field, the Career Development Center at the University of New Haven will provide you with the tools you need to move forward.

Career planning is a process that begins when you enter college and continues throughout your life. We hope to provide services to support your own professional advancement, as well as encouraging you to share the sum of learning gained through your life experiences with our current students.

  • Are you dissatisfied with your current career and are looking for a change? Is the possibility of downsizing, layoff or company closure in your future? A Career Coach from the Career Development Center can meet with you to discuss how your transferrable skills can be applied to a new career. The process can start with self-assessment, lead to career research and evolve into revising your résumé and cover letter to match the qualifications of your ideal position. Staff members in the CDC can also provide helpful tips on how to conduct an effective job search, discuss the importance of networking, and the best way to prepare for an interview.
