Congratulations to Summer 2016 Summer Experience Funding Recipients!
This summer, over 70 Oberlin students will receive a total of more than $270,000 to help offset their expenses for career-related experiences. Through the generosity of alumni donors and foundation funds, the Career Center was able to award students from $1,000 to $5,000 each to support their work in internships, community service or other pre-professional activities.
Oberlin College’s Career Center helps students and recent alumni in the College of Arts and Sciences and the Conservatory of Music identify and achieve meaningful career objectives that build upon their Oberlin education and experiences.
We offer group and individual advising as well as experiential opportunities that complement all students' learning and experiences during their time at Oberlin.
We encourage students to take advantage of the center’s many programs and resources in order to:
- Enhance self-awareness of interests, values and talents: Individual counseling and advising, vocational and personality assessments.
- Explore future paths: Panel discussions, networking opportunities, and library and online resources with information on a variety of career fields.
- Acquire knowledge and experience: Internships during the summer and winter term, music competitions and summer festivals, freelancing, Business Scholars, Entrepreneurship Scholars, and Law Scholars programs.
- Develop skills for effective self-presentation: Workshops and individual advising on resumes, cover letters, bios, portfolios, audition preparation, proposal and essay writing, interviewing, networking, graduate school, fellowship and employment applications.
