Find Your Place in the World
A job is just a piece of the puzzle. Finding the right career path is a process of discovery that lasts a lifetime. It starts with some big questions. What do you want to accomplish in your life? What kind of environment supports and inspires you? What makes you happy? You don’t have to figure it all out right now — but you can start to think about the bigger picture by exploring different career paths, setting long-term goals, and meeting with a CAPD career advisor.
The Career Exploration Series
Every fall and IAP, CAPD hosts an institute-wide Career Exploration Series! This series is a collaboration between MIT departments, programs, employers, and alumni to help all students learn about the different career and graduate/professional school options available to you. This year’s series will start on September 12th.
