At GW, we believe that each student is unique and everyone’s journey to their future career is different. Our goal is to help Columbian College of Arts and Sciences (CCAS) undergraduate students develop an individualized plan that puts knowledge into action, builds skills for internships and jobs and prepares them for a lifetime of productive and engaged citizenship.

Our career coaches help students create a personalized plan for success that starts with self-knowledge to connect passions to a purpose. Through networking and career events, students have hundreds of opportunities to connect with employers and alumni to build their personal network, bring their “dream job” closer to reality and make a successful classroom-to-career transition.
