The services and programs offered through the Center for Career Development are designed to assist you in getting on the right path and helping you develop the skills and tools necessary for a successful transition.

Career Counseling

If you know you want to make a change, but are unsure how and what you want to do, career counseling with a professionally-trained counselor is the answer.

  • Individual Career Counseling – You can schedule an appointment with a career counselor by contacting the Career Center at career@drew.edu or 973-408-3710.  At your appointment, you will engage in self-assessment, evaluation, clarification of your goals, and development of a plan by which to achieve them.
  • MyPlan is a free online career development program available to alumni that includes taking several self-assessment inventories to identify possible career options.  After taking MyPlan, we suggest you schedule an appointment with a career counselor to interpret your results. Contact the Career Center at career@drew.edu or 973-408-3710 for the registration information for MyPlan.

Résumé Review

The Center for Career Development can review your résumé and make suggestions for reformatting, updating, and refining.  For those in career transitions, you might consider developing a skills résumé, or if you are moving into the field of education or research, you will want to develop a Curriculum Vitae.

Interview Techniques

If it’s been some time since your last interview, we can help sharpen your interviewing skills with tips and techniques for effective interviewing.  In addition, we can conduct a “Mock Interview,” as a way to practice the techniques you learn.
