Carnegie Mellon University

Help our students reach their life potential. Become a Carnegie Mellon Career Partner.

The Career and Professional Development Center (CPDC) empowers students and alumni to reach their life potential through career exploration, experiential learning, and networking.

The CPDC is a centralized career center staffed by a team of professionals who orchestrate the needs of students and alumni.  Our model is grounded in discipline-specific career development, experiential learning, and employer relations shaped by strong connections with the university's seven academic colleges. The center's success is due to an unwavering commitment to providing personalized attention and meeting the unique individual needs of students, alumni, and employers.

You can help our students reach their life potential by becoming a Carnegie Mellon Career Partner. We established the Carnegie Mellon Career Partner program to recognize employers who support our innovative programs and initiatives and invest in the professional development of our students and alumni. Your generous contribution is appreciated and recognized by students, faculty, staff and parents within the university community throughout the academic year. As a Carnegie Mellon Career Partner, your contribution will help us assist students with each phase of their career and professional development. You will also receive benefits associated with being a partner. Varying partnership levels are available.

To register to become a Carnegie Mellon Career Partner please follow the directions below in Handshake: Click "Fairs" then select "Career Partner"
