Leveraging the Monroe network, we empower our students and alumni to engage in strategic exploration, preparation, and action, translating their education into a lifetime of meaningful work.
Internship experiences during your early college years will give you focus and the ability to leverage those experiences as you prepare for your next step, whether looking for a job, going to a graduate or professional school, or making your own opportunities.
Monroe Career Services coaches students of all class years through an exploration of career opportunities available to them following graduation.
Before diving into specifics about careers and industries, take stock of the current situation. Students should consider what they bring to the table, and the resources available to them.
Career advisers and extensive programming in Monroe Career Services are available to assist students as they begin the process of self-assessment and career exploration. Work with an adviser to build your personalized action plan to make your goals a reality.
