Career Coaches
Career Coaches are student leaders on-campus who provide support to students by assisting with career-related tasks, such as resume and cover letter reviews and e-reviews, networking practice, and career development programming in Residence Halls. These student leaders act as an example of effective career development. All Career Coaches undergo extensive training with Career Development Center staff, and serve to supplement services provided by counselors.

 

Career Development Ambassadors

Career Development Ambassadors are our front desk associates who will make your appointments, answer questions and promote Career Development events.  They are on site Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM. Call or stop by to learn more from them.

 

Mission Statement

Skidmore's Career Development Center is committed to supporting all students and alumni through the creative process of integrating their liberal arts education and experiences into a satisfying career. In keeping with the College's founding principle of linking theoretical with applied learning, we help students and alumni develop self-knowledge, cultivate partnerships on and off-campus, prepare for experiential opportunities—such as internships, collaborative research, and community involvement—and manage their careers proactively. We encourage students to build skills and participate in engaged liberal learning practices early in their Skidmore experience, and we offer guidance to both students and alumni in forging meaningful careers for a world of rapid change.
