Resources for Parents

Employer Engagement and Career Design helps students throughout their time at Northeastern to:

  • Explore then make decisions about choosing or changing their majors
  • Search for internships
  • Conduct after-graduation job searches and apply to graduate/professional schools

The Northeastern’s Parents Leadership Council (PLC) engages with Northeastern’s global community, provides co-op support, and fosters relationships with current parents. Explore how these committees make a difference.

Three Great Ways You Can Help Your Student:

  1. See our home page for what your student should be thinking about this year
  2. Remind your student that Employer Engagement and Career Design is here to help
  3. Suggest that your student attend events (Employer Engagement and Career Design Event Calendar) – students report that they come when you weigh in.
