Who we are.
The Ellie Block and Family Career Services Center at the Friedman School is committed to helping our students and graduates leverage their outstanding education to find impactful and fulfilling careers. Our career coaches leverage their many years of experience, career development training and practice, and industry and employer insights, to assist students and alumni.
What we do.
We provide holistic career education, planning, and job search support to engage students at each stage of their education, from incoming student to alumni. We empower students to leverage their educational experience and career ambitions and translate these into meaningful and impactful work over the course of their lifetimes.
How we do it.
The Ellie Block and Family Career Services team achieves its mission by helping students and alumni:
- Explore their interests, values, and experiences and consider how to connect these to the world of work;
- Develop and hone key career and job development skills such as building relationships; creating a resume, cover letter, and professional online profile; practicing interviewing strategies and salary negotiation techniques; and
- Cultivate jobs, internships, and other professional opportunities through relationship development with employers and creating immersive events to facilitate student and employer connections.
Friedman School alumni work in government and non-governmental agencies, as well as private organizations in the United States and throughout the world.
