The Office of Career Development works collaboratively across the college, providing student career integration opportunities and employment consultation while enriching external opportunities and visibility in creative industries for students and alumni.
Career Development manages the MCAD Internship Program where students learn about professional industries, build skills, network, and expand portfolios by working with an experienced professional. Internships, part-time and full-time jobs, and freelance opportunities are posted online at mcadcareerdevelopment.com. This site, available only to students and alumni, also offers links to external resources, professional handouts, and the option for users to submit resumes for critique.
Career Development staff is available to meet one-on-one with students and alumni to assist with career development. Topics usually include assistance writing and editing resumes, cover letters, and other professional correspondences; career exploration and industry research; interviewing practice; networking strategies; and industry-specific practices. Individual drop-in meetings are available and encouraged, but scheduled appointments are strongly encouraged.
