Professional Development

The education that students receive at the Honors College provides them with the skills to work collaboratively with others to deliver creative solutions to global issues. The Honors College also helps students pursue their goals for life after graduation. Whether a first-year student exploring potential career directions or a more advanced student looking for research and internship opportunities, our dean for professional development is here to help students identify the best next steps.

Students receive career-related counseling, resources, and programs to help them clarify academic and career goals, establish career plans, develop networking skills, and make successful career and graduate school transitions. We build relationships with alumni, employers, and graduate schools to optimize internship and job opportunities while also creating strategic partnerships with campus departments to assist students in developing and articulating co-curricular experiences that will help to ensure that they are competitive in their future pursuits. 

The Honors College also works with the Rutgers Office of Career Exploration and Success (CES), which is committed to assisting students with making connections between their academic experiences and career paths.
