HC Professional Development Council

The HC Professional Development Council (PDC) is dedicated to helping Honors College peers network with alumni, HC juniors and seniors, employers, HC Graduate Mentor Fellows, and others who can share relevant career information and connections. The Council supports students who are developing their professional portfolios to work in industry as well as prepare for graduate school and academic opportunities. In addition to hosting networking events, the Council supports a variety of workshops and office hours. While professional pursuits are serious business, the Council also makes time for fun by hosting networking through sport golf clinics with our Rutgers golf pro partners, giving HC students an additional competitive edge in the world of networking.
