School-Based Career Services

Career Development at the University of Southern California

Along with the Career Center, USC has school-based career centers or professionals committed to the career development of each USC student. USC’s federated model of central and school-based career services allows us to provide a wide range of career services and a variety of programs, workshops, and general career development advice, along with industry-specific information, job opportunities, and networking connections. Students can seek assistance from both the Career Center as well as their school-based career centers or professionals.

Mission Statement

Enhance career development through partnerships and innovative technology in preparation for global career aspirations.

Core Values

  • Collaboration (Engaging Student Affairs)
  • Community (Encompassing USC students and alumni, academic units, faculty, parents, and central and school-based career centers)
  • Connections (Encouraging the expertise of external stakeholders including non- and for-profit organizations)

Vision

By engaging in self-exploration and strategizing post-graduation opportunities, students will graduate with personal accountability and initiative while maintaining the traits of a Trojan!
