Carleton students and alumni have access to career coaching through the Career Center from the moment their Carleton experience begins. Career coaches are eager to assist students with career exploration, job searching, application materials, interview preparation, and networking strategies. Coaches can also interpret career and personality assessments, offer graduate school advising, and explain available technology and subscriptions.
This year, all first-year students were assigned a career coach to assist them in their career exploration journey. Throughout the school year, career coaches have contacted their assigned students to alert them to upcoming programming, remind them of career-related resources, invite them to connect, and check in on their progress.
We encourage students to make coaching appointments through Handshake, Carleton’s career management system. Appointments are offered Monday-Friday at various times of the day. Students may contact the Career Center directly if they cannot find an appointment that fits their schedule or if an immediate appointment is needed. For everyone’s safety, coaching appointments will be offered virtually until further notice.
