    We would love to partner with you to support the career development needs of the students in your major or concentration. There is a Career Center staff member assigned to each academic department to provide assistance with any career-related services and programming for your department. Please email your Career Center liaison to get started. We look forward to collaborating with you.

Resources for faculty

  • Student Profiles
    Review your advisees’ profiles regularly.  Encourage them to keep their profiles updated and professional in tone.  You can use information in their profiles to help guide them to resources and opportunities that might be good fits for them.
  • Faculty Profile
    Fill out your Faculty Profile. Students, staff, alumni, and faculty are asked to fill out Profiles. For faculty, Profiles are an advising tool to help students make connections as well as a way to stay connected with alumni from your department.
  • Reference Letters
    The Career Center partners with Interfolio to provide a confidential online reference letter/credential service.
  • Transferable Skills
    The skills students gain in your courses are highly valued by employers.  You can help students identify and articulate the transferable skills they’re developing in all of their Carleton classes and experiences.  This list is a starting point for helping students identify these skills.

Resources for you to share with your students

  • Where have Carleton students interned?
    A searchable database with information sorted by major, career field, and geographic location.  (Please encourage your students to contact the Career Center if they’ve completed an internship, so that we may add their information to this database.)
  • Pathways
    Pathways helps students prepare for life after Carleton by exploring how certain classes and majors could lead to potential careers, internships and off-campus study programs. It also leverages Carleton's existing relationships with alumni, parents and friends of the College, allowing students to network and find out how those people's experiences could help them find their path after Carleton. (Lerner, M. (2013, November 4). Carleton College website asks: What can you do with a liberal arts degree? The Star Tribune)
  • Carleton College Data Visualization
    You can click on either a major or a field of employment and see the lines of connection in either direction. You can click on one of those lines and see each broad field of employment further broken down into sub-fields.

    This includes only alumni who have provided us with information on their fields of employment and only alumni since the class of 1990. Double-majors show up in the graphic twice, once for each of their majors. Special majors do not appear. We have grouped together all modern language majors. Lastly, alumni who have worked in more than one area since graduating are represented multiple times.

  • Alumni Profiles
    Alumni complete an online profile which indicates to current students and fellow alumni that they're eager to talk about their career path, share advice, and provide insights on Life after Carleton.
  • What do Carleton alums do? 
    These reports will give you and your students detailed data about where Carleton alums with each major work.
  • What Can I Do with this Major?
    These helpful guides give examples of career fields that might appeal to students in a variety of majors.
  • The Tunnel
    This is the College’s main job and internship posting site.  All students have Tunnel accounts, and so do all faculty and staff – just use your Carleton login credentials.  The Tunnel is a great resource for browsing to get an idea of the types of jobs and internships that might be of interest to a student.
  • GoinGlobal
    Packed with country-specific career information, this research tool provides expert advice and insider tips for finding employment opportunities at home and abroad.  If you are off campus and trying to access this site, please email
