Career Coaching

You can use Handshake (see below) to make an appointment with a professional career counselor. Each counselor is assigned to a specific industry, which we refer to as an "interest cluster."

Handshake (formerly ClaremontConnect)

Handshake is the comprehensive online communications and recruiting program used by CMC Career Services and the 7C Consortium. Through Handshake, students can access the 7C on-campus recruiting program for hundreds of full-time employment opportunities. Students should carefully and thoroughly fill out their Handshake profile, including the Career Interests section, and explore the features offered on Handshake that will streamline their job search (creating a search agent, signing up for targeted emails, for example) and assist them in connecting with recruiters. 

CMC Career Expo/Claremont College Career Fairs

The CMC Career Expo is held each fall. The Expo is a great opportunity to connect with more than 100 recruiters and alumni about career opportunities and potential career paths. There are also a number of on-campus employers at the fair who are recruiting for jobs in the fall and spring. This year, the Expo will feature the following "neighborhoods”: Accounting/Financial Services, Consulting, Non-Profit/Government, Healthcare/Sciences, Technology, and On-Campus Employment. This is a one-stop shop where students have a unique opportunity to learn about the plethora of opportunities open to all majors, both now and in the future

Each of the Claremont Colleges also hosts career fairs that are popular events for all Claremont College students. These fairs focus on STEM, Non-Profit, and other industries. Recruiters and alums come back to campus to talk with students about opportunities in their organizations.  These events are very well attended and are quite effective for both the student and the employer.
