Welcome to the Office of Personal Career Development
Preparing students for life and work in a changing world.
Discern, Experience, and Achieve
We seek to prepare you (students and graduates) for achievement of success in your professional lives. We will help you discern as you explore opportunities, experience as you grow your skills and make informed career-affecting decisions, and achieve your vocational goals.
The OPCD also seeks to cultivate and expand employers’ awareness of the high caliber of UD students and alumni as candidates.
While the resources we provide can help you on your path, be sure to work closely with your academic advisor and the OPCD staff to ensure that you meet your goals!
