Discover your purpose, and plan for your career in the changing professional world.

What you learn during your time at St. Edward’s is just the beginning of a life-long journey. What contributions are you called to make, and how do you prepare for success beyond the hilltop?

In response to COVID-19, on-campus Career and Professional Development events for the remainder of the spring semester have been cancelled. For helpful COVID-19 related job opportunities, search tools, and unemployment and financial resources visit our COVID-19 Career Resources and FAQs under the Career Tools page. 

While the Career and Professional Development staff is working remotely, career counseling appointments and “walk-in” hours will be conducted via Zoom, which can be accessed by webcam or phone. Someone will reply to your walk-in request promptly. 

Check-in for walk-in hours HERE or call 512-448-8530 (Walk-in hours are 12pm to 5pm, Tuesday through Thursday).
