"The D’Amore-McKim Graduate Career Center helped me throughout my time at Northeastern. My career advisor was very hands-on in my career search and worked with me in all aspects—from resume building to answering questions I had regarding salary negotiations for my full-time job. And, their corporate partnerships allowed me to pursue a six-month corporate residency at a publicly traded tech company." — Whitney Galusha, MBA'17

"I had a great experience working with the Graduate Career Center. The advisers were very helpful and assisted me in every way, including corporate residency placement and full-time job search. What particularly impressed me was a tailored approach towards each student—advisers tried to understand each individual`s career aspirations and skills and help him or her to identify the best suited career path." — Tigran Gukasyan, MBA'15
