Campus Employment Fair

All paperwork can be completed at this fair, including the work-study authorization forms, an I-9 and W4 forms. For specific information about this year's event click here.

Fall Career Fair

Held early in September to connect students with organizations seeking part-time workers and interns for immediate and anticipated openings. Representatives are from a wide range of work settings, including government, business, social service, political, science, and associations. Information on this year's fair is available here

Fall Career Series

A semester-long series of programs open to all students. The Fall Career Series usually begins in early September. It typically includes panel discussions about careers in various fields with workshops pertaining to job search skills (e.g., interviewing / resume instruction). An outline and description of the entire series are presented at the beginning of the fall semester.

Full-Time Employment

Students are assisted in connecting with employers and securing full-time employment through a three-pronged approach. The centerpiece is Cardinal Connection. Cardinal Connection is a web-based system through which full-time employment opportunities (as well as part-time and summer jobs, internships and work-study positions) are posted for CUA students and recent alumni. Links to other key internet employment resources are included in this package. Hand-in-hand with Cardinal Connection is the Senior Job Search Seminar, a two-semester series of short workshops on core aspects of the job search process. This is supplemented by personal appointments that help students prepare a highly effective job search campaign.

Spring Career Series

A semester-long series of programs combining panel discussions about careers in various fields, workshops pertaining to job search skills (e.g., job searching/interviewing/resume writing), and a major job fair. 

Spring Job Fair

An annual event, usually held in March or early April, for full-time positions for new graduates and summer jobs and paid summer internships. Specific details (date, time, place) about this year's event are available here.

National Student Employment Week

Each year, the National Student Employment Association declares the first full week in April to be set aside to recognize the value of student employees and student employment professionals. This week is an opportunity for The Catholic University of America to publicly recognize and thank the many talented student employees for the outstanding support they provide. In addition, an Undergraduate Student Employee of the Year and a Graduate Student Employee of the Year is selected and announced, based on nominations from the campus community. Details of this year's event can be found here.

Pre-Law Programs

Programs/panels discussing the procedure for applying to law school and opportunities to take a free mock LSAT. Details will be made available as these programs are scheduled. Also check our Upcoming Events page under Off-Campus Events.

Senior Job Search Seminar

A series of short workshops offered both semesters teaching the basics needed to find and connect with employers, and to nail down a job offer. Includes personalized attention through meetings with Career Services counselors to explore career opportunities, polish up your resume and cover letter, organize a job search campaign, develop a network and prepare for interviews.
