Career Communities

Explore Our Communities:


Welcome to the hub of Launch’s Career Communities! Here you will find portals to eight Career Communities tied together by common interests and pursuits. This is where you gain access to the opportunities, experiences, and mentors you need to develop your transferable skills.

On each Career Community page you will find information specifically curated for that community including: job and internship opportunities; on-campus events and activities; Drew student groups; study abroad opportunities; graduate programs; and other resources you need to succeed here at Drew and beyond. You will also have direct access to alum mentors who are already working in the field who can help you hone your résumé, think through the selection of a major, or just discuss life after Drew. Revisit these pages often and sign up for a newsletter as the content will be updated regularly. All of these pages have been designed to help you find information that is relevant to you when you need it.

These are not communities of membership—they are communities of interest. You are free to explore as many as you would like. In fact, you are encouraged to do so. You might find that your Launch Plan takes you to multiple communities, and your exploration might get you excited about an opportunity you had never previously considered.
