Careers & Transitions

Whether transitioning from high school to college or from college to career, change can be inherently intimidating. The Office of the Provost focuses on ensuring that all students explore their interests and make successful transitions regardless of their major or career goals. We can help to ensure that all students have access to the resources they need to make successful transitions and become leaders in the 21st-century workforce.

Explore the possibilities:

  • First-Year Interest Group Seminars: The Office of Career Exploration and Success believes that students who learn the ins and outs of Rutgers in their first semester will be better off long-term. The office introduces first-year students to important resources in order to start students on the road to personal and professional success.
  • Pre-Law Advising: We counsel students interested in preparing for admission to law school. We use the expression "pre-law" as a way to describe all training, studies, and experience which precede formal law study. A library of law school catalogs and resource materials are available, as are statistics about applications and acceptances to law school. 
  • Division of Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Engagement: Programs like Upward Bound & Upward Bound Math-Science provide a supportive and educational resource to assist students in navigating the college admissions process. Services and activities foster the students' understanding of what is required to succeed in college. 
  • Career Exploration and Success: The office is committed to assisting all students—first-year to graduate students—with connecting academic experiences and career paths. The office builds relationships with employers and graduate schools to optimize internship and career opportunities, while also assisting students to make meaning of co-curricular experiences that will make them competitive in future pursuits.
