CEU Careers Newsletter, January 19, 2018, Issue No. 1

Welcome to the CEU Careers Newsletter!

We are launching this newsletter to support the professional development of CEU students. We will share resources, let you know about events, and highlight job and internship vacancies of potential interest.

In addition to the newsletter, we urge you to make use of a variety of sources when researching vacancies and planning for the future. You can find hundreds of such resources in the CEU career platform, career>next.

We are aware that not all of the opportunities and events highlighted here will be relevant for all members of the community, given the diversity of CEU's academic programs and students. We also realize that the deadlines and starting dates for jobs and other opportunities presented here may not be appropriate for everyone, given the different timeframes of CEU's master's and doctoral programs. We suggest you review the information included here in order to learn about organizations that might be relevant for you either now or in the future, and to discover the requirements sought by potential employers in terms of skills, experience and knowledge.
