How to Help Carleton Students
Ways To Help
- Offer information - Alumni, parents, and other volunteers can offer valuable information to students regarding job choices, career paths, potential employers, industries, cities, and much much more. You can:
- Meet with interested students for a meal or at your place or work
- Answer questions over the phone
- Give tours of your job site
- Speak on campus about your field and experiences after college
- And much more! Contact us for more information.
- Offer an internship - Students are always looking for work, and are eager to look for employment that can be educational and help them in pursuit of their career goals. If you know of or have an internship for a Carleton student, paid or unpaid, please contact us. A template of information needed to post your internship can be found by clicking here. We will post it on our searchable database, and in a weekly bulletin distributed to students.
- Recruit for a job - If you or your place of business would be interested in hiring Carleton students after they graduate, please contact Mike Hendel. We offer recruiting on campus, as well as other ways to interview students if recruiting is not feasible.
- Participate in one of the Career Center programs listed below....
- Engagement Wanted connects Carleton juniors and seniors and new grads with alumni, parents, and friends of the College who may have advice, referrals, or employment opportunities.
- The 30 Minutes program connects alumni actively engaged in careers with students interested in a specific job or industry. In just a half-hour conversation (face-to-face or video chat), Carleton networking magic happens.
- Internship programs provide students with real world experience and perspective in a given field, while organizations find them to be a solution to short-term staffing needs and a solid source of new hires.
- The Mentor Externships program connects students with alumni for 1-4 week “mini internships,” most with a focus project, and generally including home-stays with their alumni hosts.
- The Carleton Scholars Program consists of “taste-of-industry” tours that introduce students to a variety of organizations within a particular field of interest.
- The Carleton Careers Alumni Board engages alumni across classes, professions, and industries to aid the career center in helping students and alumni explore and find meaningful careers.
