Mills MPP students have access to the resources and personal support of the MPP staff and faculty, along with the Lokey Career Services Office.
As a Mills MPP student, you are encouraged to begin working on a career development plan from the moment you enter the program, when we ask you to reflect on and articulate your career goals. In subsequent stages of the career-planning process, you will have opportunities to research the skills needed for desired employment, identify your own skill set and skill gap (as something to work on in the program), create a resume, and build a cover letter that speaks to your strengths and is aligned with your goals. You will be invited to practice your interviewing skills, to hone your job search strategies, and to attend events relevant to careers in the field.
Your One-Stop Shop for Career Services Resources
All currently enrolled Lokey School students and alumni/ae (with their Mills alumni/ae email address) have access to Handshake, which is a one-stop shop for Career Services resources. Handshake is an online, searchable database where students can view and apply to job and internship postings and RSVP for Career Services events (workshops, employer information sessions, career panels, networking events).
