The 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.
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 focused on skill development and job search strategies.
- One-on-one coaching sessions are available for students and alumni. The agenda for the appointments are set by the student / alumnus, and often focus on industry exploration, job search strategies, document edits, mock interviews and related topics.
- Employer information sessions, industry panels and career events relating to a wide range of opportunities in the public, private, non-profit and multilateral sectors.
- 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. If you are a current student, you will receive the Career Bulletin automatically. Alumni may subscribe to the Career Bulletin by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with their name, program, and graduation year.
- In the 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.
