The primary purpose of the Office of Career Services is to help Roanoke College students and alumni establish career objectives and initiate steps designed to meet individual career goals. Career planning is a developmental process that we encourage students to begin in the freshman year with self-assessment and career exploration. During the sophomore through senior years, we recommend that students become involved in summer jobs, internships, externships, and volunteer work to build experience on which to seek professional positions. Students spend the latter part of the junior year and the entire senior year preparing to search for and acquire employment and/or advanced study commensurate with their needs and academic experience.
The Office of Career Services provides a wide range of professional services to assist students in planning their future education and/or careers. Examples of student questions addressed by the Career Services staff include:
- "I don't have any idea of what I want to do when I graduate. Where do I start?"
- "What can I do with a major in...?"
- "Which companies recruit on campus?"
- "What kind of jobs do liberal arts majors pursue?"
- "Can you help me arrange an internship?"
- "Can you give me information about graduate schools?"
- "What do I put on my resume?"
- "What do I say in an interview?"
