Welcome to MIT! We have put together a virtual orientation that will help you learn about the different resources and support we provide to you as you begin to develop and progress towards your career goals. At the conclusion of this orientation, you will:

  • Understand different CAPD services and how to access them
  • Sign-up for a Handshake account
  • Learn how to schedule an appointment
  • Learn how to register for career events
  • Find ways to stay connected with CAPD
  • Learn about additional resources



At the conclusion of the orientation, you can test your knowledge and resourcefulness through the CAPD Orientation P-Set. The P-Set is open through Friday, August 28th. As an added incentive to MIT incoming first-year undergraduates in the class of 2024, you have a chance to enter a drawing for a $24 gift card! Participation in the orientation and the P-set are both optional.

If you have any questions about this orientation, contact Erik Pavesic, Assistant Director of First Year Engagement, epavesic@mit.edu.
