Selective Liberal Arts Consoritum (SLAC)

CMC is a partner in the Selective Liberal Arts Consortium (SLAC) which provides additional internship and full-time employment opportunities for juniors and seniors. SLAC organizes pre-selected interviewing days during late November and  Winter Break. CMC students participate in the Chicago ( Nov. 30, 2012), New York (Jan. 4, 2013), Washington DC (Jan. 7, 2013) and San Francisco (Jan. 11, 2013) events. These events offer a great opportunity to meet with organizations that do not interview at The Claremont Colleges. Companies come from all over the country and represent a variety of industries.

Career and Internship Connections (CIC)

Boston, MA (Jan. 7, 2013) * Los Angeles, CA (Jan. 8, 2013) * New York (Jan. 9, 2013) *  Washington DC (Jan. 11, 2013)
 
What is CIC?
Career and Internship Connections are off-campus career fairs and interview days offering both FULL-TIME AND INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES.  They are scheduled during winter break so you have the time to travel to the cities in which you are interested. There are 2 ways to participate: 
  1. Register, upload your resume, and APPLY for positions by the November 26, 2012 deadline. Employers will review your resume and there is a good liklihood you will  be selected to interview (CMC students tend to do very well in obtaining pre-selected interviews).  You will then be able to select a time that works with your schedule and be interviewed at the event!
  2. Attend the morning career fair portion of the event (at any of the cities) and do your best to schedule interviews with the employers in which you are interested.  The odds are you WILL be offeredt at least one interview--many of our students successfully obtain multiple interviews through this method.
 
Registering for the events early means you’ll get updated information on employers attending and opportunities available. You can also create search agents which will automatically send you postings that fit your interests in the specified cities.
