We know that you are invested in helping your student succeed at Hamilton and beyond. This page was designed to help you understand what career-related tasks your student should be working on, to provide some general information about our office, and to offer some ways that parents can help with the career planning process.
The Career Center has developed this “Career Map” to help students navigate the road to career success. While all students and career paths are unique, this "four-year plan" gives a general idea of when your child should be engaging in specific career planning tasks.
The Career Center has developed a series of career development “milestones” that we feel students must meet to be successful. These four milestones are highlighted in the right-hand column.
Encourage your child to come to the Career Center and meet with a counselor for individual guidance and to complete the Career Center’s Blackboard course. This is a free, non-credit bearing course which leads your child through each of four career milestones via online workshops, guides and other resources. All Hamilton students are enrolled, and the course is easily accessible via the Blackboard system.
Does your employer hire students for internships or full-time positions? We strive to provide our students with fantastic opportunities for career-related experience and post-Bachelor pursuits. We are happy to a post parent-referred position, publicize the opportunity to our students and collect resumes for your review. Please let us know of opportunities, including those from organizations where you volunteer or serve on a Board.
