Professional Development

The Center for  Professional Development (CPD) inspires, supports, and educates students and alumni to develop their full potential as creative entrepreneurs, locate staff and freelance opportunities, and succeed as fine art practitioners. Counselors work with students on professional learning goals for internships  and career goals for their job search so Pratt students and alumni can navigate the path from college to career with clarity, competence and confidence.

CPD staff members stay abreast of changing trends and employer needs, and guide HU students into an easy transition from college into the work environment. We maintain relationships with employers and internship providers nationally and internationally, and offer many ways for employers to reach and recruit from the talented HU community.
