Discover Your Calling

Career development isn’t just about potential job or graduate school opportunities; it’s about discovering your unique personal calling. As you prepare for life after graduation, the Career Services Office provides a wide range of services to help you find and successfully apply for internships, graduate programs, jobs, and other opportunities.

At Hillsdale College, we believe that career development is supplementary to the endeavor of education. Career preparation in and of itself is not the primary end of education. It is, however, a happy result of a liberal arts education founded on the principle of self-government. As a Hillsdale College graduate, you will succeed in the workplace on the account of not only your knowledge and intellect, but also the strength of your character.
