September Preview: Getting (Re)Started with Careers

Free Headshots, Personalized Career Counseling, and a new Career Path to Success — it’s time to kick off your Fall semester with the Career Development Center!

This year, more than ever, our office is committed to providing you with the building blocks to your professional success. Join us this month for just one of the following events or resources and you’ll be set on the path to starting (or resuming) the conversation surrounding you and your career. But first, let’s have a recap for those who might be unfamiliar with our office or the changes we’ve gone through this Summer…

What is the Career Development Center?

The Career Development Center is the hub for career education, resources, and experiential learning (internships, jobs, etc.) at Emerson College. Our office represents more than career services — we are your personal connection to professional resources and support. We are the coaches in your corner, the cheerleaders on your sideline, and the friend you can always rely on when it comes to resumes, cover letters, interviews, and anything beneath the umbrella of your career success.

You can use our office for more than a quick appointment in the coming year. In fact, our counselors encourage you to keep in touch with them via email or in-person meetings so that we may continue to provide personalized career counseling that’s tailored to your needs and your unique professional development. Keep an eye out for emails coming from your counselors this semester as these messages will help keep you connected with the ongoing conversation surrounding you and your career both during and after Emerson.

In short: We are here to help by any means necessary. You can get in touch with us through email, Careerbuzz, or Social Media and we promise we’ll be there!

So, with that being said, let’s get to our new events and programs going on this month:
