The Center for Professional Development (CPD) supports all Dartmouth undergraduates in exploring career interests, identifying strengths and opportunities, applying for jobs and internships, preparing for interviews, and learning about the professional world. We work collaboratively with employers, alumni, faculty, parents, and other colleagues – all of whom help educate students about the ever-changing world of work.
We provide a range of services to Dartmouth students, including individual and group career coaching, self-assessment tools, employer events, and other resources that complement personal and academic growth while helping students identify and pursue career goals. From job shadow experiences, fireside chats and networking strategies - to career fairs, targeted internship/job resources, and interviews - our efforts are designed to support students throughout each phase of their career development.
We support all students from all different backgrounds and career interests. Whether you are curious about sustainability, social impact, government, healthcare, technology, consulting or another field, we can provide resources and support for exploring and identifying opportunities.
