Cawley is positioned to be a pre-eminent 21st-century career center that:
- begins the process early and often with students on the widest range of career paths and sense of purpose,
- creates and supports robust experiential and internship opportunities and does so in ways that are equitable for all students,
- brokers employer relations in an efficient and unified way, and
- integrates its career development efforts with the Georgetown alumni network.
To that end, Cawley staff are focused on guiding principles of broad, early, continuous exposure for students; better integration with the schools and experiential learning endeavors; and equitable access to services and opportunities. Read on to learn about nine new initiatives that connect to these areas.
Broad, early, continuous exposure
As a growing number of employers hire students through internships, and as internship recruitment begins earlier in certain industries such as finance, it is important for students to have basic levels of self knowledge, occupational knowledge, and decision-making skills by the spring of sophomore year and to continue to refine their story and strategy with support from Cawley and other spaces on and off the Hilltop.
Better integration with the schools and experiential learning endeavors
Given Cawley’s recent move to Academic Affairs, as well as students' strong affiliation with their schools and co-curricular endeavors, opportunities abound to build closer relationships with academic councils, professors, and deans as well as colleagues and students in co-curricular spaces.
It is critical that all students have access to opportunities, learning, and support available through experiential learning and mentorship. Cawley staff are focused on partnerships and technology that will increase equity and access for all students as they seek to define and pursue meaningful work.
