At Quinnipiac, we equip students with what the modern job market requires: a diverse skillset, global perspective, social intelligence and a collaborative mindset. We accomplish this by integrating academic and career development, and by providing numerous opportunities for hands-on experience, such as internships, research opportunities, volunteering and international study.

Our students are driven to pursue all meaningful job resources and embrace opportunities to expand their talents and expertise. Our career development professionals work closely with them to find internships that match their unique skillsets and goals. Because of this highly personalized approach, our 8 schools and College of Arts and Sciences are pools of highly talented, driven individuals and future leaders.

It’s no secret why job fairs and other events bring eager representatives from hundreds of companies to Quinnipiac each year — our graduates have the skills and ambition employers are looking for.
