Center for Career Development

With a liberal arts education, you can pursue practically any career under the sun. The tough part is figuring out what you want to try first after you graduate. That’s where the Center for Career Development comes in. We can help you discover how to translate what you love into something you’ll love to do.

The Center for Career Development can help you identify and clarify your career objectives, point you toward rewarding internships and put you in touch with advisors, alumni and other professionals who can help you explore your options. We also offer resources and training for the technical side of career prep — from writing resumes and cover letters to conducting interviews.

Make an appointment by logging onto Handshake. Once you log in, navigate to Career Center / Appointments. 

A Powerful Network

The Crusader family extends far beyond our home on The Hill. Connect with Holy Cross graduates using the HC Network — you’ll get access to thousands of alumni who have volunteered to provide a firsthand perspective on your field of interest.

Internship Opportunities

A hands-on internship will help you understand if a certain field or occupation is a good fit. It will also help your résumé rise to the top of the proverbial stack. Working with the Center for Career Development staff can help you zero in on the perfect path for you. Be sure to investigate Summer Internship Funding available through our office. 

Career Advising

In almost every way, career development has more to do with self-discovery than with crafting the perfect cover letter. We’ll help you think about how your interests, strengths and skills intersect with the careers you’re considering. Because nurturing a career is an ongoing process, we encourage you to make an appointment with one of our advisors to get started as soon as you feel ready, and no later than during the first semester of your sophomore year.
