Career & Professional Development: for parents and families > CPD participation in new student orientation
New Student and Family Programs conducts both the New Student and Transfer Student orientations for incoming Hokies and their families. For more information and scheduling, explore their orientation pages.
During summer orientation, Virginia Tech holds a Resource Fair where new students are shown a number of the many different resources available to them, and given the opportunity to speak to representatives of many offices, including Career and Professional Development.
In addition to the Resource Fair, New Student and Family Programs schedules Interest Sessions for new students. On their schedule you will find interest sessions for Career and Professional Development
through which we provide an introduction of how assist students in preparing for careers. Additionally you will see sessions for our Health Professions Advising program where we can begin advising students considering any health professional career.
We look forward to meeting you and talking with you about how we assist students in the career journey, and complement the academic experience through career exploration, planning, and finding career-related experience.
