Carnegie Mellon University
Tepper grad at coinbase


Recruiters recognize that our graduates are exceptionally prepared to make an impact in organizations and in the marketplace.

Carnegie Mellon's career services team works closely with students and companies on all aspects of the career process. Carnegie Mellon’s Career and Professional Development Center has a team that serves the Tepper School undergraduate population — students who are majoring in economics and in business.

While some students enter Carnegie Mellon knowing exactly what they want to do in life, most do not. One of our goals is to help our students understand the vast array of career possibilities. Our program partners with the CPDC's Tepper School team, who orchestrate the career exploration, experiential learning, and career networking needs of students. 

Through one-on-one conversations and workshops, as well as connecting students with alumni, the CPDC's Tepper School team offers comprehensive career development services. First-year students through alumni can schedule an appointment to meet with a career consultant. Students have access to many career-related events, including an annual professional development and workshop calendar, company information sessions, visits to employers, job fairs such as the Business Opportunities Conference, and the Wednesday Night Insights speaker series, which features senior alumni and recruiters who visit campus and share corporate and industry overviews with our students.
