Career Communities

The Career Community is for students who are interested in exploring themselves further and learning more about career options prior to making a decision.

Making career decisions requires two frameworks of understanding; yourself, and the world of work. Students in this community will participate in activities to gain a better understanding of their personality, interests, values, and skills, as well as how majors relate to the world of work, ways to gain experience on-campus, and making the most of all the resources Skidmore has to offer.

Students in the community are encouraged to participate in events offered by all career communities
