Welcome to CXD

In Career Exploration and Development (CXD), our job is to support students as they exploreexperience, and pursue internships and full-time career opportunities around the world and in every industry and sector.  The cornerstone of our approach is individualized, supportive one-on-one student advising with advisors who have real-world expertise in the areas in which they advise.  We look forward to meeting with every student, no matter where you are starting in your exploration of internships and jobs.

If you are not yet sure which sector interests you most, we invite you to meet with and of our advisors to get started.
