Diversity Resources

There are a wide variety of career resources for people in traditionally underrepresented groups. These resources don't replace the services offered by the Career Planning Center but rather provide supplemental guidance, job postings, and informational articles in career exploration and internship and job searches. We encourage students interested in career exploration or jobs/internship search to set up an appointment with a career counselor by calling (203) 254-4081 or e-mail cpc@fairfield.edu.
