Student Opportunities

Because of the George Washington University's collaboration with the nation’s most prestigious cultural institutions — as well as internships in museums and top design firms — the Corcoran School offers opportunities like no other, inspiring students to create art and design with the potential to shape and influence the world beyond.


Center for Career Services

Whether it's an internship, work-study position, or finding a great job after graduation, the Center for Career Services at GW offers many online and in-person resources to help students plan successful career paths. Contact the Center for Career Services for personal career coaching, self-assessment, resume and portfolio building or information on navigating the GWork system.

In addition, Shaunda Thompson is GW's Industry Coach for U.S. Politics, Social Impact, Education, Arts & Communication. She is able to help with things like job search strategy and resume writing. You can set up appointments with Shaunda by going to Handshake > Career Center > Appointments > Schedule a New Appointment > Industry Appointments > U.S. Politics, Social Impact, Education, Arts and Communication

Shaunda has over a decade of experience in higher education at the community college and four year institution levels as a career coach, academic advisor, academic support center director and adjunct professor.
