Career Counseling for Students


Need Help Exploring Career Options?

At Career Services we offer one-on-one career counseling appointments to students who are seeking direction, considering majors, exploring internships, job searching or applying for graduate school. Meet with a career counselor to clarify your interests, skills and values, and sometimes we use inventories as well -- like the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and the Campbell Interests and Skill Survey. Our goal is to help you  make an informed choice about where you want to start your life after Swarthmore. 

Career Planning

Career Counselors also offer assistance with career planning and developing your job and internship search strategies. We can help you with:

  • Resume and Cover Letter Development
  • Professional Networking
  • Mock Interviews
  • Graduate School Applications

Programs and workshops to assist with career planning are offered regularly. We also help recent grads in their job search, grad school applications, and alumni with career transitions later in life.
