Rick Hearin

Executive Director of University Career Services
Office of the Executive Director


In this role, I lead and manage University Career Services for a broad array of Rutgers academic programs on the New Brunswick campus.

Before coming to Rutgers, I served as the Director of the University Career Center & The President's Promise at the University of Maryland in College Park, after having served as the Director of Career Services at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, for more than 20 years. I began my career as the Director of Career Development and Placement at Ohio Northern University.

As a native of Detroit, I completed my bachelor's degree in English and psychology at Central Michigan University and my graduate work in college student personnel at Bowling Green State University. I also served as a Captain in the US Army in both domestic and international assignments.

Enjoy your Rutgers experience. It will change and enrich your life in unimaginable ways. Take full advantage of the wide array of services, programs, and resources available from University Career Services. Our singular focus is on your success, and, with you as a fully engaged partner, you will find us extremely helpful as you travel your own unique path to professional development.
