  • Access to Handshake, Reed's job and internship database
  • Job and internship search strategies (for part-time, full-time, and on-campus employment)
  • Document review (resume, cover letter, personal statement, CV, LinkedIn profile)
  • Mock interviews
  • Career panels and events applicable to all majors
  • Weekly email newsletter with curated opportunities
  • Quiet room for phone and Skype interviews

CLBR Programming MenuShare Student Success

We find that we are most successful in helping students with academic and career planning when we follow the successes of our Reed graduates. Share the post-graduate success stories of your former students so that we can keep track of where our young alumni thrive after graduation. Email our office or call us at 503-788-6690.
