Who We Serve

Undergraduate Students

The Career Center serves undergraduates enrolled full-time in the Blair School of Music, College of Arts and Science, School of Engineering, and Peabody College, and we also will provide full services to recent graduates (0-2 years out).

The Center provides many opportunities for students to learn about and explore professional opportunities, including career coaching appointments, workshops, career panels, Industry Career Days and field trips.

Start mapping out your future by meeting with one of the professional career coaches either during walk-in hours or by scheduling an appointment. You can schedule your online appointment by going to DoreWays or calling the Career Center (615) 322-2750. The career coach will help you map out a plan for whatever career field you're interested in. And if you don't know what you're interested in, we'll help with that too! 

Vanderbilt graduates go everywhere and your career is not necessarily tied to your major. For example, English majors may find themselves in the music industry, and engineering majors may find themselves on Wall Street. By working with a career coach students can explore their interests in various fields, learn how to tell the story of their education and experience,  and apply to work in whatever field of employment interests them.

We have many resources you can use to help prepare for the world of work. Please visit us any time during your four years at Vanderbilt and take advantage of all we have to offer!
