Career Launch Academy

Land the job or internship you want, without having connections or “the best” resume.

Whether you have zero or 200 professional contacts, Career Launch Academy will help you grow your network while building up your networking skills to help you land your next internship or job. 

Career Launch Academy is a 28-day program that helps students develop strong networking skills. The program will help students develop new connections, reconnect with existing connections, learn how to set up and conduct Career Conversations, and how to turn those conversations into jobs or internships. Students will have access to Daily Online Microlearning Videos, a complete Workbook with templates, strategies, and tips, as well as Weekly Live Group Coaching Sessions with the Office of Career and Professional Development to provide feedback and answer questions during the program. The program will run in Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer .
