Career Communities

Career Communities take on critical career questions: What is career success? How do I network? What is my elevator pitch? How do I navigate failure? 

What is a Career Community?

These CVC-hosted groups for undergraduates are organized around specific industries or racial/ethnic identities. Students can expect to cultivate professional competence with guidance from career coaches and alumni experts in their chosen field of interest.
