ASSESS. EXPLORE. CREATE. SUCCEED.

College of the Arts’ (CART) Career Services is a special unit within the College’s Office of Student Services.  The unit  is dedicated to helping students assess their professional skills and interests; explore careers based on those interests; create strategies for professional development; and succeed in finding a professional direction. CART Career Services will then help you develop a career plan that complements your intended professional direction, taking into account your academic preparation.  Services include individualized consultation and a range of special programs.

Whether you are a freshman undergraduate or a master’s degree candidate, there are steps you can take now to advance your career development by participating in CART Career Services’ advising sessions and career development workshops, and/or using our online interactive tools – all of which are designed to help you:

  1. Learn more about your interests, skills and values
  2. Research careers
  3. Prepare your career plan
  4. Explore professions through Cooperative Education and internship opportunities
  5. Plan for graduate school
