Career Services Mission and Summary Information
Career Services @ the Soll Center for Student Opportunity partners with the wider CMC community to coach and empower students and alumni to formulate individual goals and strategies for achieving them. We connect students with opportunities that foster thoughtful exploration and early engagement for their personal and professional development.
To encourage exploration, Career Services is organized into eight “interest clusters”: Accounting & Financial Services; Consulting; Creative & Entertainment; Government, Law & Public Policy; Medicine, Healthcare & Biotech; Science & Environment; Non-Profit & Social Enterprise; and Technology & Entrepreneurship. This model ensures that students have the opportunity to explore multiple interests and interact with professionals and organizations across a wide variety of industries.
Please download our Career Guide (PDF) to learn more about our Career Services approach at the Soll Center for Opportunity, including how Career Coaches partner with students to help them assess who they are and what they want, explore careers, and start to design their own future.
For further information about the career trajectories of our recent graduates, please refer to our Outcomes brochure (PDF).
Sponsored Internships & Experiences
The Sponsored Internships & Experiences (SIE) Program financially supports students each year in pursuing transformative domestic and international internships and experiences. Last summer, over 400 students received budget-based funding ranging from $500 to $8,000 with 83 percent of applicants received funding for internships or experiences.
We are partnering with Parker Dewey to offer a new micro-internship program which will allow students to apply for short-term (5-40 hour) remote projects which are both paid and a great way to build expertise in key skills. You can find details about the program and how to register here.
