Career Development & Industry Engagement


HHP Career Development & Industry Engagement strives to engage students in professional development and career readiness activities that will empower them as they pursue their academic and professional goals.

Our services focus on cultivating their preparedness for the transition from student to professional. From facilitating relevant professional experience, developing business communication and leadership skills, to providing networking opportunities for our students to connect with industry partners and alumni, we forge connections between our students’ educational experiences and their professional endeavors.

We offer faculty outreach presentations; self-guided resources and in-person skill-building workshops and professional seminars for students; and extensive opportunities for employers to connect with our students through career fairs, guest speaking engagements, and sponsorship opportunities.

>> To our students, faculty and employers, we invite you to explore the programs, services and resources available to you:
