In addition to university wide resources such as the Career Planning and Placement Center, the Viterbi School focuses its efforts to assist students in their next steps beyond graduation with our Viterbi Career Connections (VCC) office. VCC offers career focused support to prepare you for internships, co-ops, and full time employment post graduation. We host a variety of technical companies throughout the year- with job openings to fill! You will begin to take advantage of extensive career support specifically for engineering students beginning the first year.
It all starts with advisement. Academic advisement is mandatory every semester at the Viterbi School. In addition to discussing your course plan and selection., we will also discuss your future and how to connect what you do now with what you want to do later. Career focused discussions begin in your freshman year to help you navigate the ideas related to your academic path including various graduate school programs in addition to job opportunities.
Along with employers, we host a number of workshops, information sessions, and large scale events year-round to assist you with planning your next steps. Resume writing, finding and internship/co-op, a number of networking events, the annual Viterbi Career Conference, and our large semi-annual Engineering Career Fairs give students a number of ways to meet employers and explore future opportunities.
