What's a Career Community?

​​​​Career Communities are your guide for exploring, making connections and launching a career in a specific field of interest. Communities provide information, opportunities for exploration and experience, and mutual support in a variety of ways. Through these communities, students will cultivate professional skills with guidance from career advisors, industry experts, alumni, faculty and employers in their chosen field of interest.
