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 industry, build skills, network and expand portfolios by working with an experienced professional. Internships, jobs, freelance, and other professional opportunities are posted online at mcadcareerdevelopment.com. This site, available only to students, alumni, faculty, and staff, also offers an employer directory, links to external resources, professional handouts, and the option for users to post resumes that employers may view.
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, marketing plans, or grant proposals; career exploration and industry research; interviewing practice; portfolio reviews; networkings strategies; and industry-specific practices. Individual meetings are available and encouraged, but appointments are strongly encouraged.
