Resources for Students
The student employment program offers the opportunity to work on or off campus. Only students who have received federal work study aid as part of their financial aid package are eligible to apply for and work in student employment positions.
Available positions are accessible in Career Hub beginning on the first day of classes each September. Students who are hired must complete federal employment forms before they begin working. Contact Katie Bell, student employment specialist, at (401) 341-2202 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
The most important first step you can take toward career success is to know yourself and your interests. Our career advisers are happy to help you identify educational and career goals, and discuss the variety of academic majors, occupations and industries that may lead you to a satisfying career.
- Do What You Are - This online self-assessment tool lets you tap into the theory of personality type as you explore majors and careers. By working closely with a career adviser, you can ideally use this instrument to better understand and apply your own natural styles and strengths in your career decision-making. "Do What You Are" may be accessed through Career Hub.
- What Can I Do With This Major? - This convenient website provides a snapshot of 80 academic disciplines and the common career areas, typical employers and job search strategies associated with each major. Access the "What Can I Do With This Major?" website.
A resume is a professional marketing document that you will need to apply for jobs or internships. It's never too early to create a professional resume, and our career advisers are happy to help. Whether you are starting from scratch or just need to update what you have, we can help you highlight exactly what employers want to see.
Students who review their resume with a career adviser and upload their resume into their Career Hub account receive full access to all employer contact information. To begin the process, schedule an appointment through Career Hub or call (401) 341-2913.
Interviews are typically required during the job search process, and it is vital that you plan and prepare for this important conversation. Employers expect candidates to have researched their company and to describe why they would be a good fit "in this position" and "at this firm." This may sound easy on the surface, but describing your own experiences can be difficult, and marketing yourself with confidence is even harder.
You are encouraged to schedule a mock interview with our office. Tell your career adviser what types of positions or companies you are targeting, and your adviser will ask interview questions appropriate to that industry. After the mock interview, you and your adviser will work together to constructively critique your performance. This is a great way to get some feedback and practice your interviewing skills before it counts.
We occasionally bring employers to campus as part of the mock interview program, allowing you to further practice your interviewing skills with these industry professionals. Call (401) 341-2913 for more information and to schedule a mock interview.
A wide range of job and internship postings, information sessions and on-campus interviews with companies are available throughout the academic year.
Depending on the industries you are interested in, employer hiring needs and recruiting schedules may vary. To make the most of these employer connections, it is essential for you to become familiar with the services available from our office. We invite all students to visit our office and meet with a career adviser at their earliest convenience.

- LARC Boston - Liberal Arts Recruiting Connection (November). The LARC career fair allows you to explore job and internship opportunities with more than 40 employers across a variety of industries who are seeking candidates with a liberal arts background.
Many students decide to continue their education by attending graduate school. An advanced degree doesn't just increase your earning power, it can help you expand your career and define your place in the job market. Additionally, graduate school allows you to focus your studies on the topics that interest you most, and learn more about your industry from peers who have worked in the field.
Determining what degree, program, school and location might provide the best experience for you can be a complicated process. This decision often requires careful consideration, and our career advisers are happy to assist you in discussing and formulating your graduate education plans. You can schedule an appointment with an adviser through Career Hub or by calling (401) 341-2913.
