Supporting you on the path to career success

Welcome to VCU Career Services.

We offer ways to search for jobs, internships, and other experiential and employment opportunities, as well as customized career events focused on skill-building, learning about industries and career paths, and networking with employers and alumni.

In-person appointments and Entry Pass

Please note: We are using Entry Pass in our location for all in-person appointments. You will be asked to show your screen with the green checkmark and correct date upon entry into our suite in the Commons. If you cannot show us a green check entry-pass upon your arrival, please call us and we will update your appointment to virtual or help you reschedule.

How can we help you?
