We serve all students at the University with the exception of Law, Medical, Dental, Veterinary Medicine and MBA students, with services including:

  • Individual career advising through scheduled appointments and brief “walk-ins” for quick questions
  • Advising students unclear about their options or needing help with career decisions
  • Helping students appreciate the range of career possibilities opened up by studies in particular fields
  • Substantial databases of summer jobs, internships and full-time post-graduate positions
  • Assistance with resumes, cover letters, and interviewing practice
  • Assistance with graduate and professional school applications, including advice on optimal application strategies, reviews of personal statements and graduate school essays
  • An exceptional website and digital career resources featuring up-to-date information on career fields, graduate programs and potential employers
  • Alumni/alumnae and faculty panels on career fields and graduate study
  • An extremely active On-Campus Recruiting program through which employers come to Penn to present their organizations, as well as interview students for permanent positions and summer jobs and internships
  • Broad connections with employers across career fields that encourages them to come to campus to give information sessions or participate in the career fairs we organize
  • Customized communications with students through specific distribution lists and industry/population-focused newsletters
  • Data on career outcomes for Penn students through annual Career Plans Survey Reports
  • Resources for students from specific populations

Looking for career advising for yourself? We can assist you if you are a current student or alumni of the programs we serve. Otherwise, most employees who have worked at Penn for at least one year are eligible for career coaching through Penn HR.
