Career services and funded internships
While other colleges have traditional Career Services offices, Connecticut College's Career Enhancing Life Skills, CELS, is different. CELS provides a four-year program through which students plan coursework and activities, culminating in a search for a career-related funded junior-year internship, and finalized by helping seniors with job search and graduate school applications.
The office offers a full range of career services for all students regardless of participation in the formal CELS Funded Internship program. CELS is great for help with academic planning, academic certificate centers, jobs, internships/summer jobs, resumes, cover letters and more!
- As a first-year student, you'll start by creating an electronic portfolio on CamelWeb to catalogue your accomplishments. You will also complete a series of workshops oriented toward freshmen.
- Also in your first year, you'll take a series of workshops geared toward identifying your interests and skills and meet with a CELS counselor. The counselor will help you build a resumé and make choices about classes, activities and the paid junior-year summer internship.
- Check out – What Can I do with a Major in…? to explore career and academic interests. Be sure to talk with your CELS Counselor about your ideas and thoughts.
- As a sophomore, you may begin to consider applying for fellowships or scholarships and receive assistance with the process. You can also seek pre-professional advising for medical school and the health professions, business and law. You may want to begin thinking about questions you may have for our study abroad office.
- When your junior year begins, you'll focus on finding an internship that matches your goals. Watch a video about five student internships.
- As a senior, you evaluate what you've done, what you've learned and where you're going. Then you'll map out a plan for graduate school, a fellowship or a job.
