Career Academy


Prepare for your Job Search Before you Even Start Class


The Summer Career Academy is designed to prepare you for your job search before you start class. Why is this important? Your time at Heinz College is limited, and recruitment is intense right from the beginning. As a Heinz College student, you will need to secure a summer internship, and the opportunities to do so begin in the fall. This means that it is important and extremely helpful to you if you have an up-to-date résumé and a know-how of best practices for professional networking, so that you are prepared to land an internship or job whenever it may come around.

Career Academy will take you through the full spectrum of Career Services, from learning how to establish yourself professionally, to building your résumé, to finding the right positions, to finally negotiating a job offer. There will be five modules for you to complete. Those who go through all of the modules and successfully complete each short quiz will receive a FREE backpack!

We will open Career Academy modules on our website every two weeks during the summer to help prepare you for the recruiting that occurs in the fall. Our goal is for you to become comfortable with our office and services before you begin classes. We hope you will see Heinz Career Services as a valuable resource in meeting your career aspirations.

Let's get started!
