We start planning for your life after college from the moment you get to college
At Conn, career planning isn't something that happens in your senior year. Our Office of Career and Professional Development offers a four-year career preparation plan for every student. Your career adviser is part of the advising team that is with you from the very beginning of your college experience.
Our program gets results. A year after graduating, 96 percent of our alumni are employed or in graduate school.
Put everything you’ve learned to work
The summer before your senior year, you’ll take everything you’ve learned in class and through local engagement and put it to work in an internship. We offer every student up to $3,000 in funding, so you have the freedom to choose the internship that’s right for you.
We’re one of only a handful of colleges in the country that offers a funded internship to all students. Each year, almost 80 percent of students participate in the program, working in nearly every field and all across the world. Check out some recent internships.
Camels are there for each other
