What We Do

Career Center employees working with students

Loyola's Rizzo Career Center helps students and alumni at whatever point they are in their career journeys, from the first day of undergraduate classes to late career changes. We've developed a unique four phase approach that we use to serve every student and alumni, assessing where they are and helping them make progress toward their goals.

Our team of professionals is ready to serve you in a variety of ways:

One-on-One: Counseling and coaching

Whether you want to explore all the potential options in front of you or get detailed tips on pursuing a specific position, our team of career counselors and industry insider coaches is here to support you as you achieve your personal goals. More than 2,200 students and alumni met with the Career Center in 2017-18.
