Resources For Students
We understand how military students arrive to campus with various experiences and that pursuing an education assists with achieving that next career goal. Whether you are making a transitional pivot into the civilian sector, meeting requirements to get a promotion, preparing to return to the work environment, or entering the professional field for the first time, we encourage students to begin thinking and planning their career paths in the first few months of starting their program.
Georgetown University’s Veterans Office and many of the Career Centers on our campuses offer resources to military students to assist with the following:
- Career Planning
- Resume and Cover Letter Review (including military to civilian translations)
- Job Interview Preparation
- Job and Internship Postings listed in Handshake and the Veterans Office Weekly emails

Hoya Gateway's Georgetown Military Network (GMN)
For Students and Alumni
Hoya Gateway launched the Georgetown Military Network (GMN) group to connect the Georgetown student and alumni military-connected community for mentoring, transition and career development opportunities. The GMN has just launched a "Group" on the platform, which is an exclusive section of the system allows you to easily find professionals, engage in relevant conversations on the Discussion Board, and find important resources related to your interests. The University is expanding the Hoya Gateway platform to stimulate engagement across the Georgetown military network and hope that you will join the group to connect with military-connected alumni and students. The goal is to create a responsive, engaged community to better serve all Military Hoyas. Sign up today to join this vibrant network!
Georgetown University and FourBlock collaborates to support military-connected students at Georgetown University. Throughout the academic year, Eric Ahn , a career transitioning expert, will host office hours at the School of Continuing Studies to provide one-on-one counseling with military-connected students looking to advance in their careers. Updates regarding the advising schedule in Fall 2018 will be announced in August 2018.
