CAREER DESIGN

Career Design is both a process of lifelong learning and an office at Northeastern that provides the tools, resources, and strategies you will need on your journey.

All Career Design support is available virtually, including:

Career Studio  

  • for daily drop-Ins (remote access with some on-campus hours)

Live coaching labs on all five aspects of career design.

  • See the weekly schedule grid and select a journey map below for recommendations on labs to attend. For descriptions and dates of Rotating Topics and Self-Assessments (Wednesdays, 12-1 PM ET), click here.
  • To sign up for a coaching lab and view all other Career Design programs, go to our events calendar.

Canvas Modules

  • Modules parallel coaching labs for 24/7 self-paced instruction. We recommend Designing Your Career for an overview of both the process and our office (and we continue to add new modules so check back regularly).
  • Email [email protected] or call 617.373.2430 with any questions.
