Career options and preparation is promoted to students through workshops, self-assessment tools, and individual appointments with professional staff. Topics include examination of values and aptitudes, career opportunities for liberal arts graduates, job search strategies, summer job and internship opportunities, graduate/professional school options, resume writing, interviewing and networking. The Career Resource Library houses specific career guides, reference directories, graduate/professional school brochures, online subscriptions and access to the internet.
Students considering graduate or professional programs are encouraged to meet with a member of CE&D. Information is available through Career Exploration & Development on the administration of admissions tests (GRE, MCAT, LSAT, and GMAT), the wide variety of graduate and professional programs, and the entire admissions process.
Denison's On-Campus Recruitment program brings employers representing corporate, non-profit, government, and education job opportunities during the year. Through DULink, a web-based service,students submit resumes and are pre-selected by employers. Each fall the office hosts a Graduate/Professional School Fair that provides an opportunity for all students to talk with representatives of graduate and professional schools about program options. Additionally, a Spring Career Fair and various career panels are held throughout the year.
Denison Everywhere provides valuable contact information on alumni willing to offer career advice and provide opportunities for internships, summer jobs and full-time job options.
The Denison Internship Program features a variety of internships designed to help students explore careers and develop professional skills that complement their liberal arts coursework. This program is centered on providing a diverse range of internships that traditionally include positions in business, communication, education, government, law, medicine, science, service, the non-profit sector, and the arts. Students obtain internships by applying through CE&D online resources and through networking. After registering their internships, students engage in reflective exercises and evaluations that complement their work or service experiences.
Externs Everywhere delivers one-day, unpaid job shadowing experiences that match students with alumni and friends of Denison. Through this program, students gain insight into various professional cultures over academic breaks and their participation helps clarify career interests while also expanding professional networks. Externships can be established through students' existing networks or through partnerships facilitated by CE&D.
Programs and services provided by Career Exploration and Development are all intended to facilitate the development and implementation of students' career goals for life after Denison. For more information, go to Career Exploration & Development.
