Resources and Advice for Supporters, Families, and Parents

Exploration, preparation, and a team that understands how it all works.

MIT Career Advising and Professional Development (CAPD) empowers students to think big picture about their career interests and goals, then support them through every part of the journey, from research, resumes, and career fairs, to interviews, job offers and salaries. Watch these short videos to learn how CAPD can help your student explore careers and prepare for internships, jobs, and graduate school. And meet CAPD staff too!  Are you a student?
