The Center for Career and Professional Development (CCPD) offers advising and career management support to Cabrini University undergraduate and graduate students, as well as alumni.  The CCPD provides a holistic approach to professional and personal career development that ensures graduates will obtain major-related employment and be accepted at graduate/professional schools of choice.

Career-planning programs help students succeed after Cabrini. 92% are employed or pursuing further study within 10 months of graduating.

Cabrini’s internship program allows students to earn credit and in most cases income in a professional work environment. 

We host career events on and off-campus, and co‑sponsor many with other academic institutions and organizations.

We also conduct resume reviews for all students and alumni. If you would like to drop in with your resume, for a quick review with a Career Counselor without an appointment, come during our allotted Drop-In Hours!
