provides a rich variety of resources and opportunities to help students
and new alumni to pursue and develop creative, fulfilling, and socially
responsible lives. Organized around the idea that a liberal arts
education is both its own end and the best preparation for meaningful
engagement with the world of work, the office and its staff provide
career counseling and coaching to assist Reedies in discerning career
paths, obtaining internships, pursuing graduate and professional school
admissions, and understanding the world of work. Through special
programs and individual counseling, students develop skills in
networking, resume writing, interviewing, and job or graduate school
search strategies; through actual volunteer, internship, and work
opportunities, they enhance their understanding of work and its meaning.
Library resources include information about a broad range of careers, internships, fellowships and awards, graduate school directories, and other "beyond Reed" opportunities. Local and national job listings include part-time temporary work and full-time professional positions.
The alumni career network provides access to Reed graduates, who provide career, employment, relocation, and graduate school information to students and recent alumni. Career Preview helps students explore careers through visits with local alumni at their places of work.
By subscribing to the mail list Beyond Campus Opportunities (BCOP), students have a direct line to key opportunities that arise, as well as information about events, programs, services, and resources related to interests and career exploration goals. Register in person at the center or here:
