Career-Related Experience

Building a Foundation

It is important that during your first couple of years at Hamilton you take steps to lay a foundation for a successful career.  This involves taking action in the following three areas:

  • Career Planning Tasks - use Career Center resources to develop a plan, write a resume, learn about career options and how to identify and apply to summer opportunities
  • Career-Related Experience - participate in campus activities and organizations; especially, those that provide basic career skills and experience (i.e., Spectator newspaper, serving as a TA for science course, student government, College Media Board, or tutoring as a part of Hamilton's volunteer service organization). Gain valuable experience during the summer as a volunteer/intern in your local home area.
  • Academic Preparation - explore a variety of academic courses and select major and elective courses that enhance skills and knowledge
