Nuts & Bolts
Career Development Resources. The MIT Sloan Career Development Office (CDO) is the primary student resource for navigating the search for internships and employment. The CDO provides opportunities to learn about career options, teaches the skills students need to market themselves successfully in the professional marketplace, and maximizes employment opportunities for the community. The CDO runs the Career Resource Center (CRC), which features a variety of databases and materials all filtered through industry-specific resources. Additionally, the CDO provides a series of career management offerings to MIT Sloan students.
Career Core. Part of the first-semester core, this fusion of theory and practice is intended to help students develop career management skills. By working with both faculty members and the CDO, Sloan students gain experience in things like career mapping, networking, interviewing, and negotiation.
MIT Sloan Alumni Network. As with most elite business schools, the MIT Sloan alumni network of more than 20,000 people provides an outstanding career-management resource for students. Specifically, the MIT Sloan Alumni Office offers the Alumni Student Mentor Program, which pairs first-year students with an alumni mentor.
