Industry Advising

Our team of Industry Advisors provides industry-specific career support to students and young alumni with focused career goals within a particular company or sector. They possess knowledge of recruiting practices, trends, hiring timelines and professional connections to enhance your job or internship search. 

They collaborate with organizations, campus partners, academic departments, alumni and student groups to host industry-focused events, workshops and immersion programs to help you pursue opportunities within your field(s) of interest. 

To find workshops, events, jobs and internships in your industries of interest, log into Handshake.  Fill out Career Interests on your profile to receive targeted emails about relevant opportunities. You can also make an appointment with an Industry Advisor through the platform.  If you require general career advice or assistance learning the fundamentals of your job/internship search, you can make a General Career Counseling appointment.
