My first piece of advice to any alum looking for career help is: call me! The Career Services Office wants to see all CCAD students succeed in their careers, which is why we offer all our services to alumni as well as current students. Whether you’re looking for a new job, hiring new talent, or just need some advice, we’re here to help.
Finding a new job
If you’re looking for a new job, we can meet with you one-on-one to help you review your career goals and objectives, develop an overall strategy to identify and apply for positions that meet those goals, and prepare your application materials (cover letter, resume, and more). There are many job postings on www.ccadcareers.com, as well as additional job search resources readily available in our Career Services Office.
Going to graduate school?
We offer workshops on how to apply to grad school. We also have a graduate school resource center in the Office of Career Services with grad school catalogues and application materials. We work closely with students to develop a strategy on schools to which they would like to apply.
Need a transcript? Request one online.
Looking for interns or new hires?
Each year, CCAD hosts internship and career fairs to help our students find positions. They’re a wonderful opportunity for alumni to give back to their alma mater by offering a job or internship opportunity to current students. And rest assured, our students are prepared. All participating students in the Internship Fair and Directions Career Fair have been fully registered with our office, have had at least one one-on-one career strategy and planning meeting, and have an approved resume and cover letter.
Interested in career advice?
If you’d just like a little advice on your career path, we’ll meet with you one-on-one to go over your personal career plan and strategy. We also provide workshops and offer guidance to accessing the proper resources.
For more information about any of these offerings, please contact the Career Services Office.
The alumni newsletter is published four times a year and features the latest news and information for the alumni of Columbus College of Art & Design.
