The Center for Career and Professional Advising (CCPA) empowers students and alumni to learn about and prepare for meaningful work, as they translate their Haverford liberal arts education into a rewarding life. In short, we are here to help students explore, identify, and realize their career and professional goals.
The CCPA wants 100% of the Class of 2022 to have a reviewed resume by the end of their Sophomore year, and we are launching the Sophomore Resume Initiative to get it done!
