  • Starting Anew

    13 September 2021

    As Carls begin classes again this week, I can’t help but reflect on where we’ve been over the last 18 months and how that has shaped our expectations for resuming in-person learning on campus. What we know is that our team of professionals and students in the Career Center are excited to welcome and work with all Carls as they create their stories for life beyond college.

  • Engage in Externships

    23 August 2021

    After a successful round of recruiting parents, alumni, and friends of Carleton to host externs as part of the Externship Program, the Career Center is pleased to announce we have secured over 250 externship opportunities!

  • Externship Recruitment

    30 July 2021

    The Career Center’s Externship Program will be in-person or remote for students in December 2021. Externships are one- to three-week project-based career exploration experiences designed exclusively for Carls during winter break.

  • What a Year

    9 June 2021

    As our students are moving out of the residence halls this week, I am reminded of the episode of “Friends” where Ross was moving into his new apartment in New York City. Ross, Rachel, and Chandler were struggling to get his couch up the stairwell of the building. As they reached the first turn of the stairs, Ross kept saying “Pivot! Pivot! Pivot!” to get the couch in the right angle to move onto the first landing. Unfortunately, they were unsuccessful and ended up dropping the couch back to the ground floor.

    As your student moves out of Carleton’s residence halls for the first time or the last time, we hope that they have found healthy ways to pivot this academic year without getting stuck in place or having to start from the beginning. (And, even if they haven’t, we are happy to meet them where they are and help them to climb those stairs.)

  • The world may feel upside down some days, but Carls are finding ways to navigate an uncertain terrain. Since the global pandemic started shutting down in-person interactions in the spring, the Career Center has been tracking a variety of trends to understand how to position all students to effectively explore and pursue their career interests.

  • Career Center visits provide access to valuable resources, most notably: Carleton alumni

  • Winter term is an exciting time in the Career Center. There’s something for everyone, and we’re eager to work with every Carl on campus to find a program, resource, event, or activity that’s right for them.

  • Omaha won’t be changing its city slogan to “Cows, Colleges, and Contentment” anytime soon. But “Northfield 2.0” might be an option if the Weitz family continues to expand its pipeline of Carleton-grown talent to eastern Nebraska

  • Battle of Gettysburg lessons help Carleton sophomores learn leadership skills they can use as future campus leaders. Jeff Appelquist ’80 of Blue Knight Leadership, who trains corporate leaders, gave his time and talent to a group of Carleton sophomores who participated in a spring-break trip to the Civil War Battlefield of Gettysburg as part of a Career Center program.

  • Kindred Spirits

    30 March 2012

    Quintessentially Carleton qualities connect two alums separated by 20 years

    When he needed a new junior consultant for his firm’s first Latin American office, Mark Frein ’92 could easily have recruited at the Ivy Leagues. “But I’d probably be looking at people with attitude,” he says. Instead, he looked to to Carleton’s Engagement Wanted program and found the perfect candidate in Will Tynan ’11.
