93% of Hillsdale graduates launch into something that is aligned with their career goals

Most schools only measure placement rates, but here at Hillsdale we care about more than just simple placement (although we do boast a 98% placement rate) – we want our students to be entering a next step that is related to their professional goals.

Hillsdale Career Services oversees on-campus student employment

No other school houses this under career services. By doing so, we’re able to partner with supervisors to create meaningful, valuable work experiences for students.


0$ in government funding means we don’t need to adhere to FERPA

At Hillsdale, we understand that college means partnership. Other schools are forced not to disclose whether a student is working with the office or not; but at Hillsdale we partner with parents to ensure the success of their students.

We gather Career Interest Inventories before students arrive on campus for freshman year

As a small school, we’re able to work with each individual student and help them identify and achieve their unique career goals. We want to start working with students as early as possible, which is why we gather student industry interests, grad school interests, and preferred locations before they even come to campus!
