GW’s Career Center is an incomparable university resource that supports students as they explore potential careers, take part in learning activities, develop skills and transfer classroom lesson into real world experiences. The Career Center works to make sense of the current labor market, identify career trends and suggest career strategies.
The center’s comprehensive career services and cooperative education and employment services are available to connect students and alumni to employers. It also builds links between students and alumni who can extend networking and employment opportunities. While the GW Career Center serves the majority of undergraduates, graduate students and alumni, some schools and colleges are served by their school-based career services departments:
- College of Professional Studies
- Graduate School of Education and Human Development
- GW Law School
- School of Business
- The Elliott School of International Affairs
- The Trachtenberg School of Public Policy and Public Administration
The Career Center is not just for students seeking employment after graduation. We support students using Federal Work-Study awards or those in cooperative education programs. We open doors for internships or part-time jobs during school. And we help students explore career options. Our workshops, Career Resource Room, consulting, resume critiquing, special events and programs and other services help GW students acquire the success skills they need for the current job market – and throughout their careers.
