Career Education provides workshops, online resources, and seasoned counselors to help develop your individual career plan. From figuring out what kind of jobs, internships, and careers interest you to negotiating a job or internship offer, they can help you acquire the skills you need to succeed at Brown and beyond graduation.

BrownConnect invites alumni, parents and friends from Brown’s global community to post opportunities for internships, career advice and networking. Students can search for internship and research opportunities in a wide range of fields and locations, as well as financial support for students who want the freedom to pursue low-paid or unpaid internships. Alumni can find other alumni in their fields to foster professional relationships and strengthen their ties to the Brown community.


CareerLAB Career Fair

The Recruiting team engages students in the recruiting process. They also connect students with industries and employers by hosting coffee chats, info sessions, consortiums and career fairs.

Career Advising

Career advising programs provide one-on-one mentorship to students as they shape their professional paths beyond Brown. Brown faculty, academic deans, and administrative staff offer career guidance for students considering a wide range of careers. Brown also offers  tailored advising support for students seeking to enter the health, business and legal professions.

Every Brown student has a particular set of interests and intellectual passions that inform their academic choices. At the same time, you are encouraged to experiment with new approaches, to cross boundaries, and to explore new areas of study. Brown faculty, academic deans, and administrative staff are always happy to discuss students’ educational plans and professional goals.
Resources include individual advising, group advising and information sessions, information about health professions graduate schools and training programs, and additional resources to support pre-medical and pre-health professions students at Brown.
Business Careers Advising is a collaboration between The College and CareerLAB, based on comprehensive online resources, information sessions and workshops, on-campus recruitment, and individual advising. We encourage Brown students and recent alumni interested in business carers and education to explore these resources and connect.
Brown offers resources and support to students and alumni interested in the study and practice of law. One-on-one advising is available with our team of two academic deans and a law professional.
