Career Development at Stonehill

Our approach combines individualized career advising with a wide variety of innovative programs and opportunities that empower student development and self-discovery. Our primary goal is to collaborate with the larger Stonehill Community to ensure the professional fulfillment of our graduates in their first destination and beyond.

The core of our work centers on developing a customized four-year career plan that systematically moves students toward their post-Stonehill goals.

Services include:

  • Career exploration – strong interest inventory, job shadows, informational interviews
  • Internships (Locally, Boston, New York, Washington, D.C.)
  • On-campus recruiting
  • Interview preparation
  • Graduate school and post-graduate service advising
  • Coaching on networking with alumni around the world

Through interning at a municipal court, and with the support of my criminology professors and Career Development advisors, I have gained confidence, knowledge and real-life experiences. Career Development and the Criminology program at Stonehill are two amazing resources with endless opportunities that anyone would be able to benefit from!
