On average the Dolan Career Development Center hosts 50 events annually to provide students with meaningful experiences to complement their coursework. These events serve to support students’ professional growth and to provide chances to network with Dolan’s active alumni network, employer partners, faculty, and peers. Available to both undergraduate and graduate students, Dolan workshops and events are designed to enrich students’ academic experiences while providing opportunities to explore career interests. Many events count towards the Dolan Professional Development Series (PDS) program. Students can also take part in Fairfield StartUp programming and pitch for a chance to compete in the annual entrepreneurship competition, the Fairfield StartUp Showcase, each April.
