Career Development

MIT’s System Design & Management (SDM) program is dedicated to providing its students with the tools they need to advance within their companies or to effectively search for new jobs. SDM career development workshops and individual job search strategy sessions are open only to self-funded students.

Throughout the year, SDM brings outstanding career development professionals to campus to help students build the skills they need for success. Topics range from resume writing to networking to how to make a stellar presentation. SDM’s expert-run workshops typically include individual coaching, so each student receives tailor-made career assistance.

Workshop topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Communication and presentation skills
  • Creating marketable resumes
  • Effective networking
  • The art of behavioral interviewing
  • Preparing for consulting
  • Salary negotiation

Individual career coaching and job search strategy assistance is also available from SDM’s career development team.
