What are Career Communities?

Washington College prepares students of all academic interests and journeys in the liberal arts tradition; the gift of communication, collaboration, and problem-solving. Students are ready to tackle the world’s great problems from health fields to history, Washington College students seek career opportunities across a wide spectrum of possibilities.

The value of the liberal arts experience empowers students to discover and develop a wide range of interests, skills and competencies which are highly desired across all industries and sectors.  Your academic major does not limit you to a specific path but prepares you for roles of the future. Your future job may not exist yet! Every day, new roles are created through technological advancements. Pursue your passion and your dream. Explore our Career Community testimonials and learn about student’s journeys.

By exploring communities, you will gain insights to various career options and current industry information that will support exploration and good decision-making.  You will have access to relevant news, blogs, and employment opportunities that may align with your interests.  The career center staff is available to support you through this discovery and exploration process. Remember, appointments can be requested through Handshake.
