Emmanuel students benefit from the McCafferty Career Center's services from day one. Our experienced Career Advisors have decades of knowledge and offer students an inside perspective on what today's hiring managers are seeking.

At Emmanuel College, 100% of undergraduate students participate in an internship. Through a required first-year course on Career Planning and Engagement, students learn how to effectively engage in the career development process and are prepared to make the most of their internship search. 

What students are saying: 

I learned that preparing for an interview isn't just about having a plan for how to answer the question; it's about knowing yourself well enough that you can answer anything they ask.

I think it's really good that the College is requiring an introduction to internships and learning about the application/hiring process. I know people my age always think there is so much time, and we don't need to start, but it goes by quickly, so having knowledge is important.

I learned how to do an interview. If I went to an interview before having taken this class, I would have been blindsided and done very poorly. I found it to be very helpful. I did an interview two days after we spent time in class learning about interviews, and I got the position I was looking for! After getting that position, I then had to interview my peers for another position that opened up, and I could tell that over half of the people we interviewed used tips and techniques we had learned in this class. Overall this is a very good experience for those who choose to make the most of it.
