Post a Job or Internship & Participate in Recruiting at Clark

If you have a job or internship that is targeting current students or alumni, you can post it in our Handshake database. Set up an employer account and you will be notified when your posting has been approved.

Informational Interviews/Mentoring

We encourage students to connect with alumni for informational interviews, and/or mentoring. Our students' interests and geographic goals are far-reaching, and we make every effort possible to facilitate appropriate connections for them. Examples of career mentoring include: a one-time phone conversation, an on-going supportive coaching relationship, a job shadow, or a resume review. Typically, it means sharing advice and information about your career field and/or geographic area.

Career Development relies on your updated profile in Clark Connect to search for appropriate mentors. Clark seniors and all alumni also have access to this resource. Increasingly, students and alumni are using LinkedIn as a primary resource to connect with fellow Clarkies.

Career Panels

Our office organizes many career panels throughout the year. These events often feature Clark alumni that come to campus to share information about their career paths and companies.
