Career Development Center

A Randolph College liberal arts degree provides students with excellent preparation for a variety of careers.  Professional staff members are available to assist students in identifying and assessing possible career choices.  It is essential for students to understand their competencies, interests, values, and personal characteristics in order to make good career decisions.  Our career planning services include career assessment, job search strategies, career-related workshops such as resume and cover letter writing, opportunities to network with graduates, attend career and graduate school fairs, and assistance with graduate and professional school applications. Students can gain valuable information in all of these areas by investigating specific career options through the following:

Alumnae and Alumni Network

The Career Network includes alums and friends of the College who have volunteered to assist students, alumnae and alumni through mentoring via phone, email, or personal appointments. The Career Network is a valuable resource that enables networking with professionals in specific careers that can help one research and learn more about a career choice or the job search.

Career Assessment

The Career Development Center (CDC) has joined forces with Career Dimensions to bring you a new online, self-guided, interactive program designed to help you select the right college major and plan your career based on your personal interests, values, skills, personality, and aspirations.

Credit and Non-Credit Bearing Internships

Students can earn credit or non-credit internships that may be paid or unpaid. An internship that does not earn academic credit is a very valuable experience for students and will enable one to test drive their career. This type of exposure to companies and organizations that may or may not relate to one’s major proves to employers that you are interested in gaining experience in that particular line of work.

Externships/Job Shadowing

Get a glimpse today of what your future may be tomorrow. Our “Ultimate Shadow Experience” is a shadowing opportunity which may include organizational tours, informational interviews, observations, and career mentoring with employers in the field in a variety of industries.
