Who do they serve?

You don’t have to be an alum or even in your last semester to take advantage of career services at Grantham. The Career Services Team supports all Grantham students and graduates, whether you’ve recently enrolled or you earned your degree at Grantham years ago.

What resources are available?

When it’s time to apply for the job of your dreams, you’ll want to be able to demonstrate relevant skills and show involvement or leadership during your time in school – and to ace your job interview. All of that professional preparation can seem like a lot, but you can get started on your first day as a Grantham University student.

In school

Career Services can help you determine your career direction, taking your existing strengths, interests and goals into account. They use this information to help you choose what courses or degree track will be most beneficial to you during your time at Grantham and best aligns your goal and strengths.
