On February 23, 2022, Career Collaborative staff hosted an informative session about getting career-relevant experience while at Champlain. Attendees heard from both staff and students about work-study, part-time on-campus jobs, and internships. This presentation covered where to look for jobs, what supports are available to connect with employers, and how jobs help students explore their passions and career choices. Current students discussed their experiences with on-campus jobs at the Emergent Media Center© and as student ambassadors, and how those opportunities enhanced their résumés and informed their career trajectories.

Families often ask questions about the Federal Work-Study Program and how their students can participate as part of their FAFSA submission and financial aid package. Students who do not qualify for work-study in college can find paid part-time jobs on and off campus. In today's world of remote jobs, students may also experience this type of work while in college. Internships are key to every major at Champlain, and the presenters discussed how a student's job experience builds their résumé over their four years in college.

The session covered:

  • How career readiness starts during the first year and scaffolds throughout college
  • The logistics behind looking for and landing jobs on and off campus
  • The differences between work-study, paid on-campus positions, and internships
  • What the InSight program is and how it fits with Core and the Upside-Down Curriculum 
  • How jobs during college help students launch careers after graduation
