The primary focus of Menlo College’s Career Services is to help students identify their skills and strengths. We encourage students to learn about different types of work and to pursue a career that will allow them to grow and become an important contributor in their community throughout their life.

Career Services for Students and Alumni

Career Services offers a variety of services for current Students and Alumni, including help with choosing a major, career advising and coaching, networking opportunities, internship and job search resources, and graduate school information.

Students are encouraged to introduce themselves to Career Services staff in their freshman year and follow-up frequently during their years at Menlo College.

Resources for the classroom

Career Services staff is available for classroom presentations on career-related topics, including resume writing, creating a LinkedIn profile, graduate school planning, and job search.

Information is available through many sources on careers in general, specific organizations and industries.

Career Class & Events

Sophomores are encouraged to take the one-unit course, Career Management in the Workplace (MGT 120). Coursework includes career development model, career assessments, job search resources, and action plan. Career Management in the Workplace is offered fall and spring semesters.

Throughout the year, Career Services provides special events for all students. We appreciate support from faculty and staff to encourage student participation. Past events include Annual Etiquette Dinner, Major’s Fair (co-sponsored by the Academic Advising Office and Faculty), Accounting Scavenger Hunt (co-sponsored by the Accounting Advisory Board) and Tax Workshop.
