Career Development

TMP has a full-time staff working with both certificate and master’s degree students, as well as alumni, on their professional development needs including their discovery of the right fit for their talents and values with employment in companies and organizations for internships and after graduation.

Personal Professional Development

  • TMP offers one-on-one career counseling to all of our students and alumni.

  • For TMCGPMP students, counseling is available upon request. Whether its mentorship on a new venture, finding out more about local internship opportunities, or guidance on how to enter the professional world for the first time, TMP provides a variety of opportunities to help students achieve their goals.

  •  For MTM students, counseling begins well before they arrive on campus.  Several individual activities occur leading up to arrival and continue through orientation week to evaluate current career aspirations and personal communication skills.  Individual professional development opportunities are identified and scheduled to address needs early in the term.  Once on campus, workshops are available for the full range of professional skills.  

Job Search Support

TMP maintains relationships with an extensive list of companies for the purpose of matching student interests with corporate needs as well as for the on-going rich involvement of key executives in the TMP programs such as mentoring the New Venture CompetitionDistinquished Speaker Series, and program sponsorships.

The MTM curriculum was reviewed and modified by extensive meetings with over two dozen companies including reviewing the curriculum, discussing MTM student profiles, and understanding the entry points for which graduates will be likely fits.  Each year the TMP staff adds to our network additional companies that are likely to value MTM graduates and TMP certificate graduates.  We keep an extensive list of internship opportunities and provide introductions to companies for placement
