Connect Seniors to Career Resources

Transitioning from college student to working professional can be a daunting as well as exciting leap. In order to help graduating seniors prepare for the next step, the offices of Field Work Term and Career Development, Academic Services, Student Life, and Alumni Relations collaboratively design Senior Programming each year. Highlights include:

  • A day of events in the Fall designed to help seniors integrate their academic and FWT experiences, connect with alumni and employers across industries, and plan for the year ahead.

  • Workshops and panel discussions on student loans, money management, and health care.

  • Grant writing workshops and assistance applying for grants and fellowships.

  • Bennington College’s Kilpatrick Fellowship information sessions.

  • A graduate school series featuring alumni and faculty from different academic disciplines.

  • Career counseling sessions and Plan Day advising sessions with career development staff.

  • Referrals to alumni in their area of interest through the Alumni Relations Office and access to the Alumni Directory.
