» Prepare for landing a job after graduation using these resources.

Throughout the year, students and alumni of Dodge College have the opportunity to participate in a combination of career-related activities organized by our Career Office and Chapman’s Office of Career and Professional Development. These unique resources are designed to provide a comprehensive personalized career service that prepares students and alumni with the tools to succeed in the professional world.

Career resources available through Dodge College and Chapman include:
• Resume Building
• Internship Support
• Career Training
• Special Workshops
• Alumni Mentor Program

Students have the added benefit of our faculty’s extensive network of industry contacts compiled from years of experience in the business, many of which are Chapman graduates themselves. In turn, those graduates give back by providing encouragement, guidance and advice that assists students in their professional and creative development.
