Questions for this step:

  • What Are My Goals & Interests?

CDC Programming for this step:

  • CareerSpotlight Series
    The CareerSpotlight panel series highlights a variety of industries and functions to help further students’ career exploration, discernment, and pursuit. Panels feature Gabelli School alumni and other corporate representatives who offer insight on career tracks, industry trends, and recruiting practices.
  • Coffee and Careers Conversations
    “Coffee and Careers” Conversations are a small-group format featuring an alumni guest speaker who will share insights on their MBA experience and career path, tips for recruiting and building a career, the current job market, and the state of their respective industry.
  • Corporate Information Sessions
    Employers hold information sessions on campus to promote the company, share information regarding their current job or internship opportunities, and meet Gabelli School students who may be potential candidates for open positions.
  • Corporate Site Visits
    The CDC organizes student-group visits to employers’ offices throughout the New York metropolitan area. Site visits allow employers to give Fordham students a firsthand view of their operations, products, and people.
