What is CPD?

The Office of Career and Professional Development (CPD), also known as HireABear, helps students and alumni achieve “Success Beyond Baylor” through career exploration, professional development, and employment resources.

CPD encompasses four distinct areas. Each area of our department works together to help Baylor students prepare for the professional world.

• Career Exploration
Students work with CPD’s Licensed Professional Counselors to identify potential college majors and careers through self-assessment, goal-setting, and action plans.

• Professional Development
CPD prepares students to confidently market themselves and successfully prepare for graduate school or engage employers by utilizing skill-building workshops, mock interviews, premium online services, and annual campus career fairs.

• Employer Relations
CPD’s Employer Relations Team recruits and orchestrates the on-campus arrival of top-tier companies to facilitate student interviews and classroom presentations.

• Alumni Career Engagement
Baylor alumni of all experience levels obtain insight into career management through personalized consultation and guidance on résumés, job search strategies, and professional branding.
