About the Graduate Career Center

The Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service (SFS) Graduate Career Center (GCC) serves students and alumni from the eight graduate programs of the SFS, along with graduate students from the four programs in the Government Department. (Undergraduate SFS students are served by the Cawley Career Education Center.)

The purpose of the SFS GCC is to help students and alumni learn the skills they need to search for and find a job or internship. We offer:

  • Career Development Skills Workshops designed to teach contemporary job search techniques.
  • One-on-one advising sessions to assess career related skills, interests, and values held by appointment or during daily walk-in hours.
  • Campus presentations and events to help connect students and alumni with a range of international affairs organizations.
  • A vibrant jobs and internships database—WalshWorks—where students and alumni can search for opportunities and also post their resume and other documents so employers can find them.
  • A regularly published Career Bulletin to inform you of upcoming events, workshops, and discussions, plus a sampling of jobs and internships with fast-approaching deadlines.

In our office, students have access to computers, a fax machine, and a variety of handouts and other resources to assist in career planning.

The SFS Graduate Career Center was made possible by a generous gift to the School of Foreign Service from Harry J. Smith, Jr. in honor of Anne Cavanaugh Smith.
