Career Design

A unique approach to career development

Northeastern career development incorporates the principles of design thinking to identify, explore, test, and refine your options whether you are deciding on a major, co-op, postgraduate job, career transition, or lifestyle. This highly flexible approach prepares students for a constantly changing job market, supported by a wide array of career design resources, including:

Employer and recruiter resources
