CWCD offers student work, career advice

On-campus employment information and assistance are available for students who wish to work at the University (including Strong Memorial Hospital), or explore other opportunities in the Rochester area, while attending school, at the Center for Work and Career Development. Located in Room G-121, Rush Rhees Library, the center maintains a job board for a listing of available positions. Students are welcome to visit the office and read the board.

Information is also available on learning opportunities such as internships at the center. Applications for SummerReach, a program offering paid, project oriented pre-professional summer positions, are available in the fall and due in December.

The center's Goldberg Career Library contains comprehensive information on career fields, companies, directories, and full-time and part-time job search guidelines. One center resource is the CareerSource, a database of over 1500 alumni, parents and friends of the University who share their advice and expertise with students on career fields and paths, selection of majors, life in other cities, translating student interests and abilities into employment-based language, and admission to graduate and professional schools.

Counselors are available at the center to speak with students about resumes, interviews, graduate school essays, or career options during walk-ins or appointment hours.

All seniors should pick up their senior packet and those interested in participating in on-campus recruiting and the resume referral program must attend a Breakthrough. Breakthroughs are scheduled regularly throughout the academic year and give you the opportunity to complete the required data form that establishes your recruitment file.
