Career Services

Distinct from peer institutions, GSEHD's Office of Career Services is dedicated exclusively to our students and alumni. Focused on the unique professional opportunities and requirements in the field of education and human development, career planning and support is available from the day you begin your studies to long after you have completed your degree. Whether you need a tune up of your resume or a deeper analysis of your strengths and options, the Office of Career Services team offers you the one to one help, workshops, webinars and assessments to transform your career from ideas into opportunities.
Career development is a process. Information on what this process entails is easily accessible on this site and in the supplemental LinkedIn Job Hunting Handbooks: Part I, Part II, and Part III.
