Undergraduate Students

At the SEAS Career Services Center, we understand the importance of helping our students prepare for both current and future internship and career opportunities. Our office provides a vast array of services to facilitate professional growth as students work towards finding and obtaining a career that aligns with their education, experience, and aspirations. We believe that creating and sustaining relationships with both students and employers is paramount in creating meaningful career-related outcomes.

Career Counseling

The SEAS Career Services Center provides career counseling to undergraduate students through walk-in advising and by appointment. Services include: resume and cover letter development and review, job search methodology, interview preparation, education/advising in the importance of soft skills, and career strategy development. The center also brings employers to campus and hosts numerous career development workshops and presentations throughout the semester. Feeling overwhelmed is a normal part of the job search process. If you are a student who would like to talk through this aspect of your search, the center also provides stress and anxiety management.

Career Development Coaching & Industry Coaching

Undergraduates can also find assistance from the GW Center for Career Services.  GW Career Services offers career coaching, self-assessment, online resume and cover letter development and assistance with networking and interviewing to help students and alumni discover their talents and interests, decide on an academic major, explore industries and career options and create an effective job search strategy. They also help employers brand their organizations on campus through information sessions, a robust on campus interviewing program, and participation in career and industry fairs, programs and panels.
