What kind of career support you can expect?

Career development is an important part of student life at Swarthmore. Once matriculated, we offer individualized attention to students who seek jobs, career direction, guidance to select a major, internships, or entrance into graduate school. Students can drop by our office with quick questions or to have a resume reviewed by trained Career Peer Advisors. In-depth appointments with a Career Counselor are typically available the next day so students don’t miss application deadlines or fail to prepare for an interview.  Swarthmore students have a fascinating range of career interests and our staff have expertise in a variety of fields so we can help students develop action plans and contacts.

Exploring Career Paths

We encourage all students to start exploring early. From taking a wide variety of classes to pursuing interests outside of the classroom, exposure to new things can help refine interests, values, and goals. Appointments with Career Counselors provide students in-depth assistance with clarifying career direction or determining occupations of interest. Additionally, career assessments are available after an initial meeting.
