Career Services for Students

Students | Career Services

The resources and tools in this section will help you with your job search and preparation for a rewarding career in public service.

Career Appointments

Humphrey School Career and Professional Development staff meets with current students and alumni to help you navigate your career paths. Topics include career exploration, application materials (resumes, cover letters, references), interviewing (virtually and in person), job search strategies, networking and LinkedIn, and internships.

Due to our operations moving online during the COVID-19 situation, we will be conducting appointments virtually. You'll receive information on how to participate in a Zoom session or dial-in information.

To make an appointment, visit our appointment site.

Career Development

Access a wide range of resources and tools that help you discover and prepare for rewarding careers in public service. Find career development resources here.


Internships provide opportunities to gain professional experience, try out the skills you learn in the classroom, and develop a professional network. While only the Master of Public Policy (MPP) and Master of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP) degrees require a noncredit internship, all Humphrey students can benefit from an internship. More information on internships can be found here.

Professional Connections

Professional connections are key to a successful career. Learn how you can build your network.

Career Services was one of the most valuable parts of my Humphrey experience. Advisors worked with me to identify opportunities that were a great fit.
