To the Parents of the Class of 2020:
Welcome! The staff at the Center for Internships and Career Development is excited to meet and work with your students as they navigate their way through their first year at Drew University.
At Drew, career development starts in the first year and extends throughout their last, and beyond. It is never too early to engage in self-assessment, consider career options, and think about internship opportunities.
During the academic year, we offer a variety of workshops and seminars featuring employers and alumni in fields ranging from the arts and communication to environmental science and sustainability, health, publishing, law enforcement, education, business and the non-profit sectors. In addition, we help all students prepare a professional résumé and cover letter, assist them with finding and conducting internships, and provide individual, one-on-one career counseling.
The Center for Internships and Career Development also includes the Academic Internship Office, Federal Community Service Program and the Office of Pre-Professional Studies (Pre Heatlth and Pre Law).
In the spring, all first year students are encouraged to take MyPlan, an online career assessment program that measures a student’s skills, values, interests, and personality and the careers that complement them. They can schedule an individual counseling session to interpret their results and plan their next steps.
Please encourage your student to stop by and discover the many ways we can help in their professional development at Drew. Our offices are located in Sycamore Cottage. We can be contacted at 973-408-3710 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to four successful years ahead!
All the best,
Director, Center for Internships and Career Development
