Career Gateway (CG) is a professional development resource for undergraduate, graduate students, and veterans with disabilities to experience work-based field placements, internships, networking and employment opportunities with employers who value disability inclusive diversity in the workplace. Throughout the academic year, students registered with DRS can prepare for work after graduation while participating in these CG activities.
Career Gateway offers a professional development workshop series during the fall and spring semesters to prepare students with disabilities for the workplace. These educational workshops are designed to help build knowledge of the legal guidelines, policies, and entitlements that impact individuals with disabilities in the workplace and connect to disability inclusive employers through Handshake, the Career Center's career management platform.
