Our Mission

The mission of the Bard College Career Development Office (CDO) is to help students find a professional purpose, along with offering a clear understanding of jobs in the 21st century. We ask students who they are and what matters to them, and then we partner with them to translate a liberal arts education into meaningful internships and work experience. We encourage students to schedule appointments, attend our programs, and contact the office for career advice.
