Career Services

Rev. John Cardinal O'Hara, our founder, believed that business could be a force for good in society, and our Career Services team couldn't agree more.

Our mission is to help students identify and obtain careers that align with their values, leverage their strengths, and ignite their passion. In order to achieve this, we leverage a dedicated team of professionals, a robust career strategy process, and a powerful suite of tools and resources.

One-On-One Coaching

The Career Services team is composed of an exceptional group of career coaches that are dedicated to helping students obtain careers that align with their values and strengths.

Our coaches have industry experience, coaching training, and a deep commitment to understanding students and how they can build careers that have deep impact. In addition, coaches also manage corporate relationships, so they are attuned to current market needs and opportunities.
