The future of work is here.

The Career Development Center at Mount Holyoke College will help you explore your interests, refine your path, chart a course for the future, and gain the practical experience you'll need to succeed.

Our mission is to foster lives of intent and purpose through career curiosity, confidence, and knowledge.

We offer you ways to:

  • Prepare. Our professional career counselors are eager to hear your story and provide solid advice on the steps you need to take to achieve your career goals. Whether you know exactly what you want to do or you’re not sure what direction to take, the CDC is a great place to get started. We can help you learn more about your interests, skills and values through self-assessment.
  • Build experience. Explore your career interests by finding an internship and connecting with alums, employers and others who can provide you helpful advice.
  • Connect curriculum to career. We provide a diverse array of opportunities and resources to help you make connections between your strengths and interests as you build career confidence and direction. Programming and individual advising are provided year-round to support you in exploring your options, developing individual goals and ultimately pursuing a life of intent and purpose.
  • Connect to alums and employers. We facilitate connections between students and employers, alums and other professionals to create opportunities to engage and build networks.
