Mission

The Center for Career Design and Development educates and inspires students to create an individualized and evolving career path focused on exploration, preparation, and professional growth. We proudly support Hofstra University and the Division of Student Affairs’ values of perseverance, responsibility, innovation, diversity, and empowerment. Through our programs and services, we provide access to opportunities which lead to successful outcomes for students, alumni, and our employer partners.

Services

We offer one-on-one counseling services, in-person and online workshops to groups (classes, student organizations, etc.), career fairs, creative connection and networking events to connect students to alumni and other professionals, field trips to companies, collaboration with departments and campus partners, and much more. All our services are designed to help students explore, prepare, connect, and share as they develop and pursue career-related goals.
