Career and Professional Certificate Program

The Career and Professional Development Certificate (Classic Version)

Whether you’re exploring career options, considering graduate study, or applying for internship or full-time positions, this program has something for YOU.

The Career and Professional Development Certificate program is designed to equip students with important career decision-making and professional tools. One aspect of this process involves gaining a better understanding of personal interests, skills, and strengths and how they relate to your career plans. The other involves professionalism and making connections with industry experts and organizations.

Upon completion of the program, students will receive a Cal Poly padfolio (while supplies last) and a signed certificate that will add value to your resume. Please email Travis Raynaud if you have any questions.
