Mission Statement

The Sacred Heart University Career Development and Placement Center strives to facilitate the process of career choice by helping students and alumni focus on a personal sense of meaning and career direction in relation to their distinctive gifts, goals, and vision for living.

We are dedicated to teaching and inspiring life-long career management skills. By creating the connection between students, alumni and employers we empower students to identify and articulate their unique skills, interests and values.
