Career and Post-Graduate Development

The office of Career and Post-Graduate Development (CPD) seeks to ensure that Ursinus graduates are strongly positioned to succeed.


A college-wide program to connect the Class of 2020 with jobs and other postgraduate opportunities which are only available to them. We have engaged the Ursinus alumni and parent networks in offering full-time jobs, postgraduate internships, short-term projects and gap-year opportunities to which the class of 2020 from Ursinus may apply.

  • Once you have moved off campus for the Thanksgiving break, you are can earn credit for both in-person and remote internships.  Learn all the details on the internship website.

  • The Employer in Residence (EIR) Series is an opportunity for students to network 1:1 with employers from various career fields. The topics of these 30 minute informal meetings can range from resume review, learning about a particular career path, to general career guidance. Students use Handshake to sign-up to meet virtually with the alumni employer of their choice, expand their network, and learn more about the employer’s industry! Please find more information including the Fall 2020 lineup here.
