Ford School career services are focused on four central priorities:
- Share information about the variety of career choices available with a policy degree. We do this through career panels and programs, print and web resources, and individual career counseling. We encourage students to arrange informational interviews to explore the many ways in which you can apply your policy degree across sectors.
- Connect students and policy employers. This includes active employer outreach to enhance the visibility of the Ford School in all sectors, job posting and resume collection services, access to the Ford School alumni network, on-campus recruiting opportunities, and networking events.
- Assist students in creating an individual strategy for their career goals. We help students develop the skills and tools necessary for writing effective resumes and cover letters, mapping out career paths, evaluating career opportunities, and negotiating offers.
- Provide support for students through the inevitable highs, lows, and plateaus that accompany career planning and the job search process.
And through the generosity of many Ford School donors, we provide financial support for students pursuing unpaid summer internships.
