The University of Rhode Island’s Center for Career and Experiential Education (CCEE) engages undergraduate students and alumni in a high quality personal and professional educational experience, from admission through employment. We value our relationships with local and national employer partners and seek to find innovative ways to connect students, alumni, faculty, and employers in the career education and development process.
Our team of Career Education Specialists (CES) offer individual and group professional development sessions and on-line modules for students and alumni. The topics include self assessments to discover your strengths, job and internship searching, networking and brand development strategies, resume and cover letter development, salary negotiation, interviewing skills, and major to career industry clusters. We know the highest impact practice involves engaging in opportunities and courses which include relevant connections between coursework, the community and the workforce. We offer CSV and ITR courses to explore a variety of occupations and gain practical experience through an internship or civic engagement.
Our Employer Relations team develops relationships with local and national employers in an effort to connect students and alumni with their desired industries. We do this through the Rhody Alumni Mentoring (RAM) program, career and volunteer fairs, networking events, on-campus interviewing, job, internship and volunteer posting, and professional development week.
We are delighted to work with you on the journey from here to career.
