Our Services

The CDO is here to provide quality resources, services, and advising to help Pomona College students and alumni apply their liberal arts education and life experiences to a lifetime of fulfilling opportunities and throughout their career development. We are excited to work with students as they begin and continue exploring career paths.

The CDO provides students with four key action items to help guide them through the career development process at every stage of their education. From the first year at Pomona College, all the way to graduation, the CDO assists students with Self-Assessment, Exploring Interests, Skill Development, and Implementing a Plan.

"The CDO encouraged me to be open minded about my career path both in the short and long term. While I appreciated the interview prep materials and résumé reviews, the most important service the CDO provided to me was unwavering support and encouragement."

-Daniel Garcia '21, Business Analyst at Deloitte Consulting
