The Olitsky Career Readiness Program
Since 2017, the CPDC has offered specialized services for students with emotional and cognitive differences. This offering is formally known as the Olitsky Career Readiness Program. Specifically, students with autism, ADHD and career search anxiety have benefited from this program in the past.
Internships & Full-Time Opportunities
Your Dietrich College career consultants have developed a curated list of jobs and internships for Dietrich College students. This list will be updated on a bi-weekly basis and includes positions posted on Handshake and beyond.
Remember that our college is highly interdisciplinary. As such, you may be interested in and qualified for jobs that are not directly associated with your major, so be sure to think more broadly.
Meet with your Dietrich Career Consultants!
Drop in on Thursdays from 3 to 4 p.m. in Baker Hall 154T with quick questions.
