The Career Development Office (CDO) helps students and alums envision and realize a meaningful life after Vassar. We support members of the Vassar community as they explore their interests, define their career goals, and seek their next opportunity for personal growth and professional development.

The Career Development Office at Vassar College exists to help you make connections between your college experience and the world of work. We believe that career choices are directly related to academic and personal interests. Our services and programs focus on the following areas:

  • Self-awareness (defining your interests, skills, values, and goals)
  • Career exploration
  • Decision making
  • Graduate school/law school research and application
  • Employment strategies and job search skills
  • Opportunities and resources for internships and summer jobs
