As a Clark student, it’s likely that your identity may intersect with your career choices, extracurricular interests, and future goals. The Career Connections Center is here to help you explore the role your identity may play in your job search and connect you to helpful resources. You can make an appointment with a career adviser to ask questions, build a job or internship search strategy, and learn how to navigate the resources available to you.

  • The International Center at Clark University supports the development and education of undocumented students and students with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) or Temporary Protected Status (TPS) from admission through graduation.
