Welcome Parents and Families!

St. Martin Career Office works with students from the onset to embed career development into their academics, and students use their coursework and experiential learning in the form of research, internships, community and collegiate involvement as a vehicle for articulating skills, competencies and value within their chosen industry and graduate schools. Through a variety of resources, we assist students in articulating their career goals and creating well-informed strategies for success.
