What's a career community?

A career community is a cluster of similar career paths grouped together to help you better explore your areas of interest.

We've designed 8 communities to help you find opportunities, discover resources, and make professional connections. Whatever your major, class year, or previous experience, we encourage you to explore multiple communities that align with your interests, goals, and post-graduation plans. 

Why join a career community?

Career communities provide you with:

  • internship funding opportunities

  • field-specific workshops, programs, and resources

  • alumni connections in your areas of interest

  • 1-on-1 appointments with specialist advisors, and more!

Sign-up for up to three communities (on Voyager)– update your preferences at any time.
