GW’s investment in the career and professional development of CCAS students and alumni is demonstrated by the extensive career services and professional networks that exemplify the “#only at GW” experience. Our distinctive career culture embedded in the Engaged Liberal Arts empowers students and alumni to translate their world-class academic and co-curricular experiences at GW into a lifetime of productive and engaged citizenship.

The Center for Career Services, the university-wide hub of career services, offers a wide range of individualized and customized career and professional development services to maximize the engaged liberal arts experience. Our services include a robust career coaching program, convenient online resources and a wealth of diverse events and workshops to enhance career learning and connect students with top-tier employers who are seeking liberal arts majors for internship and full-time positions.

"I attended nearly every networking and informational event that was posted in [Handshake]. If I would give advice to anyone at GW, it would be to use these resources as much as possible. I learned about everything from my personal strengths to different ways to go about getting an internship."
