Events & Programs
The Career Planning Center offers a variety of events including Career Fairs each semester which you can find details about below.
The Center also sponsors a series of annual programs that we encourage students to learn more about.
Sophomore Success: Each fall semester the Career Planning Center invites sophomores to be a part of a series of workshops (dinner is provided!) that include topics such as studying abroad, resume writing, interview skills, and more.
Alumni Job Shadow Program: The Alumni Job Shadow Program matches juniors and seniors with a Fairfield alumnus/na who is in a job field that a student is interested in learning more about. Students apply for the program in the fall semester and shadow the alumnus/na they are matched with over winter break.
Career Peer Adviser Program: The Career Peer Adviser Program is comprised of students who are trained to help their peers on topics such as resumes, cover letters, LinkedIn, etc. This is a great leadership position that will also help you develop career-readiness skills.
Senior Seminar Series: A series of program designed especially for seniors to help them prepare for life after Fairfield. We know it's a stressful time so let us help you get on the right track!
