Career Preparation

Our purpose is to help you find yours. 

With expert knowledge and mentorship from faculty, countless opportunities to get involved, and practical career experience, Greyhounds graduate with a promising future—and ahead of the pack.  
As a Loyola student, you’ll find yourself networking and making significant connections that drive your academic journey and career path—just by virtue of being a Greyhound. That’s why 99% of Loyola graduates are employed full-time, enrolled in graduate school, or committed to a year of service within six to nine months after graduation. 

A Loyola education prepares students to learn, lead, and serve in our diverse and changing world. What does this mean for you?   

  • You’ll be exceptionally well-prepared for a career in your chosen area of study.
  • You’ll be intellectually nimble, infinitely adaptable, and immediately employable.
  • You’ll become a confident leader and reliable team member.
  • You’ll be adept at thinking critically and writing clearly.

These skills are transferable and highly desirable for any career—which means you’ll be poised to succeed in all areas of your personal and professional life. You’ll graduate ready for anything and ready for everything. 

The future may not yet exist. The skills you’ll need to succeed in it do.
Leadership in your field
Whatever your career or calling, real achievement will require both depth of experience and breadth of knowledge—which is how we teach everything we teach.
Enduring Success
The highest salaries within a field reward the very skills we cultivate, such as writing, reasoning, ethics, interpersonal skills, and creativity.
Preparation for a lifetime
Life and work in the future will require sets of skills that aren’t neatly packaged. A Jesuit education from Loyola grounded in the liberal arts ensures you become well-rounded, sure-footed, and nimble.
Explore your possibilities. Match passions to pathways. Execute your career plan.

The Rizzo Career Center at Loyola serves all students and alumni in discovering fulfilling career paths, providing every opportunity you need to grow, explore, and achieve your academic interests and passions... and the support to make your dreams a reality.

A unique approach to career design does far more than get you from point A to point B. You’ll match your passions and talents with a vocation and take advantage of networking events and career fairs, programs and coaching for professional development and interviewing, and digital tools that allow you to connect with alumni, employers, and career mentors in your field or sector.
