Internships and Career Development
Welcome to the Center for Internships and Career Development!
Despite the ongoing pandemic, our team looks forward to working with you throughout the 2020-2021 academic year. According to University policies and regulations, our team will be working virtually for the Fall, 2020 semester. For more information on Drew’s response to COVID-19, please visit the University’s COVID-19 resource site.
Online or in-person, the Center for Internships and Career Development is focused on connecting Drew students and alumni with content and opportunities relevant to their academic and career interests. You can read more about how we plan to work with the Drew community to accomplish all of this below:
Our team is dedicated to offering individualized advising, along with a suite of new resources and workshops developed over the past few months to enhance your career development experience. From new tools like Vault Career Intelligence to a redesigned series of online workshops and presentations, we hope these new tools aid your ongoing professional development. We recognize that the career landscape continues to change and we pledge to assist you in navigating those changes.
As part of this pledge, we’ve significantly redeveloped our website to help you access the tools and resources you need, when you need them. We encourage you to explore our new Students page. If you have any questions or feedback, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
Now, more than ever, having a skilled workforce that can quickly adapt to change and critically evaluate modern issues is key to a business’ success. We encourage employers large and small to get involved with the Drew University community through one of our many employer-partner options:
We’re always happy to follow-up on a good idea; if there’s another way you’d like to get involved with Drew, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Just because you’re no longer taking classes at Drew doesn’t mean our support to you ends. As a Drew graduate, you retain access to best-in-class career and professional development resources. Log into Handshake today to learn more about the different options available to you from our Handshake and GoinGlobal jobs databases to career guides from Vault. Still have questions? Check in with one of our Launch Catalysts to help plan your next move.
Looking to give back to the Drew community? Drew has joined the Bridges Alliance; a mechanism for alumni to develop and offer short, project-based mentoring opportunities to current Drew students. These mini-internships can be as short as 30 hours and help Drew students develop a host of transferrable skills that prepare them for the workforce. Visit DrewConnect for more information.
The Center for Internships and Career Development is part of Launch, Drew’s leading-edge approach to undergraduate education. As a part of Launch, our team is part of a larger experiential learning network across the University community, enabling us to provide a more in-depth, intersectional career education.
We'll continue to offer individualized career advising to all Drew students regardless of the University's operating status. Check the link below to book your appointment.
Our Launch Catalysts offer drop-in advising weekdays from noon to 1pm. These quick 15-minute meetings can help you prepare for the next step in your career development.
