Rivier's Employment Promise Program provides full-time undergraduate students with a personalized, four-year career plan. The program is structured around academic, leadership, professional development, and service experiences.
Career Advising and Services
Career advising begins as early as your first semester, and the Career Development Center (CDC) provides guidance and services to assist you to develop and reach your professional goals.
Our Goal is For All Rivier Students to be Workforce Ready at Graduation
Working with tools to help determine your strengths, attending resume and portfolio workshops, engaging in interviewing skills training, and accessing career fairs and internships throughout the course of your undergraduate study builds confidence and a professional network well in advance of your first professional job search.
Rivier hosts several career fairs on campus, attended by local and national employers. Additionally, Rivier maintains an online portal, RivierConnect, of open internships and job listings for students and alumni.
A well-organized and thoughtful resume makes a strong impression on employers. The Career Development Center assists all students in crafting persuasive resumes and assembling portfolios that showcase your experience and skills.
Networking is the most effective path to finding a job. Once you've landed an interview, strong preparation helps you become a standout candidate. Rivier provides the guidance, tools, and opportunities for you to succeed.
