Getting Started:

Every student is assigned a Career Counselor based on their program of study. This is the counselor you’ll be working with throughout your time at Emerson College and possibly beyond.

Our counselors are here to support you throughout your time at Emerson and beyond graduation, as Emerson alumni can continue to connect with the Career Development Center. You can meet with any of our career counselors by scheduling an appointment where they can cover everything from resume reviews to preparing you for your next interview. Appointment Types include:

  • Resume & Cover Letter Review
  • Networking
  • Internship Search
  • Job Search
  • Interview Preparation
  • ELA Preparation
  • Career Design Planning
