Professional Development, Internships, and Careers

Schuler recognizes the importance of professional networks and career readiness to the lifelong success of Schuler Scholars, which is why we continue to support our Scholars through college and beyond.

Professional Development Workshops and Career Exposures

College Scholars and alumni participate in professional seminars during breaks and throughout the summer. Topics include resume building, networking, interview skill development and career awareness. Additionally, we offer Scholars and alumni support with graduate school applications. Scholars also have the opportunity to visit different organizations in the Chicagoland area.
