About the Center
The SFS Graduate Career Development Center serves students and alumni from six graduate programs of the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, along with graduate students from four programs in the Government Department. Undergraduate Walsh School students are served by the Career Education Center.
The purpose of the SFS Graduate Career Development Center is to help you learn the skills you need to search for and find a job or internship. We offer:
- Career Development Skills Workshops designed to teach contemporary job search techniques.
One-on-one advising sessions to assess your career related skills, interests, and values.
- Campus presentations and events to help you connect with a range of international affairs organizations.
- A vibrant jobs and internships database -- Symplicity -- where you can search for opportunities and also post your resume and other documents so employers can potentially find you!
- A regularly published Career Bulletin to inform you of upcoming events, workshops, and discussions, plus a sampling of jobs and internships with fast-approaching deadlines.
In our office, students have access to computers, a fax machine, and a variety of books, handouts, and other resources to assist in career planning.
The SFS Graduate Career Development Center was made possible by a generous gift to the School of Foreign Service from Harry J. Smith, Jr. in honor of Anne Cavanaugh Smith.
