Document your growth in your Career Journal, articulate your skills in cover letters and resumes, practice interviewing, and share your professional story on LinkedIn.
Each year will bring new opportunities to become more confident and independent.
Most people find opportunities and land jobs with the help of others. Discover a world of alumni and professionals willing to lend a hand. Easily connect with hundreds of Career Contacts who offer informational interviews and job shadowing. Apply to the Career Mentor program and be paired with a trained professional to engage in monthly career conversations for a year. Or, learn how to reach out to over tens of thousands of alumni on LinkedIn.
At Eckerd, career fairs have evolved into Networking Nights; monthly gatherings connecting students with local employers interested in hiring interns and job seekers. This provides students with ample opportunity to meet with hundreds of professionals and practice their networking skills.
An Eckerd education extends beyond the classroom. Through the support of faculty and staff, students engage in practices that will help them answer some of their most pressing career-related questions. Whether it is research and internships or study abroad and service learning, Eckerd’s winter and summer terms make these opportunities attainable without sacrificing your academics (or social life).
Career staff post thousands of jobs and internships each year in TritonTrack, Eckerd’s jobs database and career tool.Sample of Academic Internships, 2018 - 2023
Each year, over 600 students work in more than 1k jobs on-campus. In fact, nearly every department hires student assistants.
Students will learn about these opportunities during Autumn Term, but just know, these positions will help you build professional skills and create lasting relationships with fellow students, faculty, and staff.
From Autumn Term to Retirement
At Eckerd, the Career Center is proactive in reaching students long before senior year. First-year students are invited to meet with a Career Advisor during Autumn Term– or even the summer prior to your arrival. Learn about on-campus jobs, discuss your plans for fall, or update your high school resume for an on-campus job. If you do not yet have access to TritonTrack, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
