For Graduate Students

Career Planning & Resources

CEC Services

The CEC provides a variety of services to Simmons graduate students from CAS, GSLIS, SNHS, and SSW (Note: SOM graduate students are supported by the SOM Career Services Office).

Career Coaching

Learning how to manage your career over a lifetime is a very important companion to your graduate education. Statistics show that, on average, over your work life you may change jobs over ten times and change careers three to five times. The process you learn during your time at Simmons will be invaluable for your future career planning and decision-making.

Career Resources

Career Resources includes access to the extensive print collection and online career collections in Beatley Library; the CEC site's resources and tools, including the CEC job banks, CareerLink and CA$H; as well as additional selected off-site resources beyond Simmons.

Alumnae/i Connections

An extremely valuable career resource for graduate students is the Simmons alumnae/i population. By speaking with alumnae/i you can learn about career choices, career paths, get an inside look at the current job market and your field, contact them for informational interviews, and more.

Career Toolkit for Graduate Students

The purpose of the Career Toolkit is to assist you in your career planning. Whether you are unsure of your career direction or need help with your job search, you will find the resources you need to begin your preparation.

Find a Job or Internship

Check out CareerLink for full-time jobs and internships, CA$H for on-campus jobs, and the other job boards and resources we've compiled.
