Career Services Mission and Summary Information
Career Services @ the Soll Center for Student Opportunity aims to empower students to formulate individual goals and strategies for achieving them. Our team of Career Coach professionals foster thoughtful exploration and early engagement to help you achieve your personal and professional development. They are called Career Coaches because they work as partners with you to help you figure out who you are and what you want, assist you in exploring your interests, internships and potential careers (via Handshake), and even grad school. We will coach you to develop and implement an action plan to help achieve your personal and professional goals. To encourage you to explore widely at CMC, Career Services is organized around eight “interest clusters”: Accounting & Financial Services; Consulting; Creative & Entertainment; Government, Law & Public Policy; Medicine, Healthcare & Biotech; Science & Environment; Non-Profit & Education; and Technology & Entrepreneurship. This model ensures that you have opportunity to explore multiple interests and interact with professionals and organizations across a wide variety of industries.
Please download our Career Guide (PDF) to learn more about our Career Services approach at the Soll Center for Opportunity, including how Career Coaches partner with students to help them assess who they are and what they want, explore careers, and start to design their own future.
