FAQs

Is the Career Center open?
Yes! Students can meet with their career advisor remotely. Students can either click on Make an Appointment, visit Handshake, email us at [email protected] or contact a staff member directly to make an appointment. We encourage you to subscribe to our monthly newsletter to stay informed.
I’ve heard the internship/job market is really challenging right now. What can I do to get a leg up, and how do I start?
The market is tight, but there’s good news: A number of people can help. Get started now by scheduling an appointment with an advisor. We’ll walk you through the process and support you throughout. It’s especially important for students who are “undecided” or just getting started to speak with an advisor to begin exploring.
How will campus recruiting, alumni speakers and career treks be impacted? 

Recruiting, speakers and treks will all happen remotely—and potentially in greater numbers. Refer to Handshake for the full schedule.

 

All recruiting activities (info sessions, coffee chats, interviews, job fair etc.) will be held virtually for the fall semester. This year, we have made the decision to hold six industry based meetups in place of our annual Job & Internship Fair. Students/parents, for more information please click here. Employers, for more information please click here. Our six meetups reflect our career communities: Business, Consulting & Finance Meetup, Arts, Communications & Technology Meetup, Education Meetup, Sciences & Health Professions Meetup, Startups Meetup, and lastly, Nonprofit & Government Meetup.

How can I build connections with alumni?
EphLink, our virtual mentoring and connections platform, allows you to build community and seek out career advice from Williams alums. Users can search for contacts by industry, major, identity, geographic area and more. Send messages, schedule phone/video conversations, a virtual job shadow experience, or connect through the identity and industry groups.
Will the ’68 Center for Career Exploration fund unpaid summer internships if they are remote?
Yes! The college is committed to funding and supporting student summer experiences, and we anticipate strong student interest in internship funding going forward.
I’ve never been to the Career Center before and don’t know how to make contact or get started. What should I be doing?
It’s easy to get started! Schedule an appointment via Handshake; look for the “Getting Started and Career Preparation” category.
What additional resources will be available to the incoming Class of 2024?
First-years have access to our full suite of virtual advising, virtual alumni speakers and virtual career meetups. Early engagement with the ’68 Center will provide the tools that students need to explore their career interests. We have dedicated advising and programs for first-year students.
I have questions about the pre-health track and health professions graduate programs. Is there someone that I should speak to for guidance? 
Our Sciences & Health Professions team in the ’68 Center for Career Exploration is here to support you throughout that journey. Please reach out to us for up-to-date information and individually tailored advice.
I’d like to refer a student to your office. What’s the best way to do that?
