How to Help Carleton Students

"Parents offer valuable information and experience to students regarding career paths, industry expertise, potential employers and much more. Consider participating in one of the Career Center programs listed below:

Host an Externship  Carleton externships are one- to three-week career preparation and exploration experiences. Each December, alumni, parents, and friends of Carleton host students at their workplaces and provide exposure to jobs in a wide variety of career fields. Externships are unpaid job shadow and/or short-term project opportunities that give students the chance to experience a workplace or industry area first hand, with just enough depth to learn if they would like to pursue further experiences in that field. Carleton parents, alumni, friends of the college, and organizations interested in Carleton talent are encouraged to become hosts.

Offer an Internship  Internships are an important experience to prepare Carls for the world of work. Interns are mentored by hosts and will be supported by the Career Center to maximize engaged learning and professional development throughout the internship.

Recruit for a Job  If you or your place of business are looking for bright, young talent for your full-time hiring needs, we would love to help connect you with Carleton seniors and recent alumni. We can also create a virtual or in-person interview schedule to make the process as easy as possible. Post the position in Handshake and/or connect with Andrea Kubinski, Recruiting Program Coordinator, at 507.222.5511 or
