Career Communities

The Center for Career & Professional Development at Sacred Heart University has recently launched customized ‘Career Communities’ which provide students a one-stop-shop to learn more about opportunities within an industry.  Utilizing these communities, you will find resources to further explore potential majors and professions, as well as identify ways to build your resume and expand your network – to help provide you with a competitive edge upon graduation!  As always, should you want to meet with an advisor to go over your specific career goals – feel free to set up an appointment on Handshake at your earliest convenience!
