Exploring Careers

Do your advisees ever ask, "What can I do with my major?" Let them know there are career counselors and coaches who support your efforts and who will help them find their answers. Be sure to refer them to our Exploration page. What Can I Do With This Major has career choices, internships, employment, Career Advisors, Graduate Schools and academic department resources for specific majors.


Skidmore was founded on the guiding principle of "education of the mind and the hand." Guide your students to a variety of engaged liberal learning practices in Handshake.

Remind students that internships may be pursued for academic credit. Please note: All credit-bearing internships are processed through the Office of Academic Advising.


Do your seniors or recent grads look to you for job leads? Encourage them to develop a personalized action plan which, among many other things, might include teaching them how to create effective resumes and cover letters, steering them toward our recruiting program and relevant employment opportunities, networking with alumni or parents in our Career Advisor Network or prospecting for opportunities.
