About the Career Center 

The mission of Lehigh’s Center for Career & Professional Development is to provide career education and connections that support student success. We fulfill this mission with a focus on students and their unique needs. Utilizing a blended learning approach, we deliver career education through career coaching, learning labs, workshops, classroom presentations, online tools and high-impact experiential learning opportunities to enhance student development.

Our team is aligned with the undergraduate and gradute programs by college in order to deliver customized career education and connections. We develop opportunities for students to connect with industry partners and alumni through mentorship, internships, on-campus and virtual interviews, career expos and more. CCPD uses a four-year learning cycle that helps students take charge of their career development. Our career learning cycle is a simple way to help students think about and plan their futures.

Faculty and Staff partners 

As a faculty and staff member, students may come to you with career related questions.   You can make an enormous impact by encouraging students to start exploring careers early and to take advantage of the career resources available to them. We want to ensure you have the information to support questions related to choosing majors, finding internships, networking with alumni and applying to jobs and graduate school.  Below are three ways you can support students: 

1. Guide them to the career center by making a referral 

2. Develop a basic understanding of the resources and platforms that support student success  

3. Learn and stay informed about recruiting at Lehigh

4. Read the Faculty Guide to Ethical and Legal Standards in Student Employment published by The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE)
