About the CPDC


CPDCThe Career and Professional Development Center (CPDC) at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) is a centralized career center staffed by a team of 21 seasoned and highly-dedicated professionals who orchestrate the career exploration, experiential learning, and career networking needs of students and alumni.

CMU’s career and professional development model is grounded in discipline-specific career development, experiential learning, and employer relations shaped by strong connections with the university’s seven academic colleges. The center’s success is founded upon a solid understanding of career and professional development theory, integration of technology, and an unwavering commitment to providing personalized attention towards meeting the unique individual needs of students, alumni, and employers.

    Does the CPDC provide advice or workshops for students to help them develop the skills needed to negotiate terms of offers after the student has received an offer from a prospective employer?
