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 Hoya Career Connection and the Veterans Office Weekly emails
- Mentorship Opportunities including Hoya Gateway and connections through the Veterans Office

As part of the Georgetown community, students in the School of Continuing Studies have access to a variety of University-wide resources. SCS has coordinated with campus partners in the Cawley Career Education Center and Alumni Career Services to identify the resources and services best suited for our students. A full overview of the SCS approach to professional development and links to the University resources can be found on the SCS professional development website. In addition to these resources, each academic program has their own industry-specific job boards, resources, and events. Students should contact their program leaders to learn more about program specific resources.
