Gain the skills to launch a great career while learning to pursue your work with excellence and for the good of others.
At the Office of Career Development, we help students excel in the fundamentals of career navigation. Students learn how to create a remarkable resume, how to interview effectively, and how to build a broad network before they need it. On top of the practical matters of making good career decisions, we aim to help students understand their calling to do work with excellence and for the good of others, as an offering to God. We believe that gospel-driven work has the power to renew culture.

“After freelancing for MTV, I ended up at an events company working in customer service and marketing for B2B events. I wasn’t passionate about it, but I was able to learn all aspects of event management. I really liked it so I thought, ‘How do I blend what I’m passionate about with the new skills I’ve learned?’ I figured out a ‘goal company’ where I wanted to work. For me, that perfect blend of event management and pop culture was New York Comic Con. I connected with their Marketing Director on Twitter. I discovered his team did much more than New York Comic Con; they were ReedPOP. I now work on a team that runs roughly 30 pop culture conventions worldwide for more than 1.8 million fans.”
“I started my dance career while at King’s. I was really into theater, particularly writing for it, so I did as many internships in theaters around the city that I could. One of those internships was at The New Victory Theater in Times Square. While there, I worked on a studio intensive with choreographer Sean Curran, who took a liking to me and said I had good movement. Ultimately, he introduced me to his friend, Heidi Latsky, who is the Artistic Director of her own dance company.”
As a student, Anna took on marketing internships at Scholastic, Bloomsbury, and Wiley & Sons. Now she’s at Horizon Media, where her clients include Geico and Welch’s.
“Transitioning from college to work was easier than I thought it would be. Advertising is a client services job, so my role largely involves short-term projects—think three to ten days each. The skills required to create and execute quality client deliverables are very similar to the skills required to succeed at King’s.”
