Career Counseling

  • Graduates 0-2 Years
    CP&R Career Counseling
    Recent graduates have continued access to all CP&R services and events up to two years after graduation. Appointments are available in person (when safe), phone, or virtual meeting. Please schedule an appointment with any questions regarding your career development, transitioning into the job market, or deciding on graduate programs. In fact, CP&R provides graduate school support for all alums regardless of grad year since many do not pursue masters or PhD level programs until a few year post Scripps. Reach out with questions at sharing your name, grad year and support you’re seeking and the CP&R team is ready to help.
  • Graduates 2+ Years
    The Bridge Program
