Information for Seniors

Helping You Transition from Vanderbilt to What's Next!

Senior Transition

Worried about what's next? Join us for a series of workshops targeted to seniors – but any student can attend – during March and early April to learn how to network and create connections, develop a job plan, leverage Vanderbilt services after graduation, and how to be successful on the job as a new employee.

Not a senior? No problem! All students welcome to attend.

Bringing coaching to a location near you! Our career coaches will offer coaching services at locations across campus.
