Prospective Students

Information for Prospective Students

The University of Pennsylvania is an amazing place that allows students to explore their interests through taking classes, getting involved with a huge range of clubs and activities, volunteering in the community, traveling to learn about different cultures, or interning with an employer.  After graduation, Penn alumni go on to make an impact in the world in all areas – business, nonprofits, arts, healthcare, technology, education, and more! There is no one path to success and the Penn Career Services office is here to help you explore your individual interests and the world of work.  We provide individualized career advising to students to help you explore what career areas might be a good fit for you, to help you succeed in the job and internship search process, and by advising on graduate and professional school applications for those who elect to pursue an advanced degree. We connect students with hundreds of employers on campus through career fairs, on-campus recruiting and employer information sessions and to thousands more through our Handshake Career Services platform.  Take a few minutes to explore our website to learn more about our services and our student outcomes.
