Faculty/Staff

Welcome to the MIT Faculty/Staff page!

Career Advising and Professional Development sit at the center of the MIT career advising universe, acting as a hub to help students navigate the many different career resources available across the Institute. Faculty and staff are important parts of the career advising universe, and we want to work with you to ensure MIT students and postdocs can accomplish their career goals.

CAPD works with all majors and all levels on their career and professional development goals. We partner with departments in many ways and appreciate feedback on how to best partner with you to serve your students and postdocs.


  • Access to our advisors
  • CAPD workshops and programs
  • Hybrid recruiting
  • Graduate and professional school
  • Career Fairs
  • Micro-internships
  • Students and postdocs can schedule 15 – 50 minute in-person, or virtual appointments between 7 am – 7 pm.CAPD operating hours will be 10 am – 4 pm, Monday – Friday, but virtual and in-person meetings and advising appointments will happen before and after open hours. Information about alumni appointments is on the CAPD alumni webpage.  
  • Our workshops will be both inperson and virtual. MIT’s Handshake events page lists workshops and events. Event information will continue to be delivered to academic administrator inboxes weekly, and new staff members can sign up for event emails on our website. Also, the workshop request form is available for special requests.
  • Many employers are strategizing their college recruitment; therefore, recruiting and career fairs will  be both in-person and virtual. MIT’s Handshake will host information sessions, coffee talks, presentations, internships and full-time opportunities listings, and interview schedules. Students and postdocs are encouraged to complete their Handshake profiles and set up their notifications to get alerts on the activities of most interest to them.
  • We expect another competitive season of mainly virtual interviewing for students applying to graduate and professional schools. Prehealth Advising, Distinguished Fellowship Advising, and Graduate School Advising are part of CAPD services and another way we support students as they explore various career paths.
  • Full details on the career fairs being offered this semester can be found on the Fairs at MIT page. In addition to the Fall Career Fair series, other career fairs will be offered by partners across campus and Harvard. View our Annual Career Fairs at MIT  page for a full list of planned and anticipated fairs.
  • Students looking for a short-term project or internship over IAP should consider a micro-internship to build their skills, connect with employers and explore a career path. Each day, new projects become available and it’s really easy to search for them in Handshake using “micro-intern” as search term when looking through the job listings.Learn more about Micro-internships
