Information for Faculty and Staff
You are one of our best resources for connecting students with Career Services. When you advise students, please remember that we can assist them with exploring their career options and provide them the tools and skills they will need to locate internships, jobs, and graduate programs. We encourage students to use the office as soon as they arrive at Pitzer.
Students can make appointments to meet one-on-one with a staff member to discuss career decision making issues. Daily walk-in hours for quick questions are also available during the academic year.
Below is a list of services and resources that address career-related issues.
Job Listings - Full-time, part-time, on-campus, and summer opportunities can be found at PitzerLink. Please contact us for more information.
Claremont College On Campus Recruiting Program - Students can interview on each of the Claremont campuses with employers representing various career fields. If you know of individuals and organizations who might be interested in coming to Pitzer to recruit students for jobs please contact us.
Nonprofit Career Fair - Students can find out about jobs and internships at this event held in late February every year. Students meet and network with representatives from organizations in the arts, education, legal, environment, public policy/advocacy, social services, and more. In order to prepare for this event in advance, students should read How to Work a Career Fair.
Four Year Plan - Checklists to guide students through each class year.
Graduate & Professional Schools - Resources addressing the admissions process, standardized test booklets, test preparation & financial aid information.
Internship Listings - Our office provides comprehensive internship listings (for the academic year or summer) in all industries. The first step is to access our database of internship listings. We are part of the National Internship Consortium (NIC) which currently posts over 8,300 internships received by Pitzer, Claremont McKenna, Harvey Mudd, Pomona, and Scripps as well as a consortium of 12 small-medium liberal arts colleges and universities including Johns Hopkins, Dartmouth, Reed, Sarah Lawrence and Lewis and Clark. Since there are so many great internship options and the process takes time, we encourage students to begin early and meet with a Career Services counselor who can assist them with identifying internship opportunities. We also provide access to select password protected and industry-specific websites.
Interviewing - advice & mock interviews
Resource library - We have a strong selection of books in our library as well as on line resources.
