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.

Career Studio  

  • For daily drop-ins (virtual and campus hours)

Coaching Labs on all five aspects of career design.

  • See the weekly coaching lab schedule and select a journey map below for recommendations on labs to attend. For descriptions and dates of Specialty Topics, 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).

In addition, there are many other useful tools and resources available to you:

Advising and Coaching Appointments

  • Once you’ve taken advantage of our coaching labs, modules, and drop-in Career Studio to meet your initial needs, individual consultations for in-depth questions and conversations are available for currently enrolled students and alumni.

(NOTE:  Students in MBA and Master’s programs in Business are served by the MBA Career Center in the D’Amore-McKim School of Business.)
