Career Advancement

Purdue Liberal Arts prepares students for meaningful careers and inspired leadership. Career Advancement connects students with opportunities for internships and careers with support from the College's network of alumni who are committed to mentoring the next generation of leaders for impact in their careers and communities.

A partnership with Chicago-based Parker-Dewey offers a platform to connect current students with employers to complete paid assignments. These real world projects and varied experiences will allow students who are still exploring careers to sample a variety of fields in a low-risk way.

An agreement with Indianapolis-based Ascend Indiana will help connect students with employers during the internship and job search process.
