Meet Your Career Support Team

At LMU SFTV you'll never be navigating your career on your own. There are a ton of resources, opportunities, and connections that are available to you right from day one! Below is a short-list of our top recommendations for students, but you can head to the Career and Professional Development webpage to see their full range of offerings.

All LMU students are encouraged to visit the CPD early and often throughout their college career. As CPD staff continuously build and solidify partnerships with companies around the world, students benefit from these relationships. LMU internship experiences help students clarify their career path, build confidence, and ultimately make meaningful connections that lead to successful outcomes after graduation.
