Thank you for tuning in to the Career Development webinar! Here is a list of frequently asked questions and answers regarding career development at Trinity. If you were unable to join the webinar, please watch the recording below to learn more about opportunities offered through our Career Development Team.
What resources does Trinity have to help students looking at graduate schools?
Career Development offers one-on-one appointments for students to work on applications, resumes, and writing samples. Pre-med and pre-law support is also available. Additionally, Career Development provides guidance for testing (GRE, LSAT, MCAT) and navigating the decision-making process when it comes to which graduate program students should pursue. Students can begin these appointments before senior year whenever they want to start exploring graduate school as an option.
How do you help students who have disabilities with career development?
Our identity-based resource website is best place to start, including a specific page for students with disabilities. This page highlights resources on-campus, within the Hartford community, professional associations, and job search sites.
What would a student do if they want to go on the nursing or physician assistant track?
If students are interested in any health care field, the Health Fellows Program is something to consider. Career Development offers pre-health advising in collaboration with STEM faculty through HPAP (Health Professions Academic Program) and students are able to take classes at other colleges and universities through the Hartford Consortium if the class is not offered at Trinity.
What are some opportunities for first-year students to get internships?
While first-year students have to wait until their second semester to start an internship, we have options available in and around Hartford through our partners. We also have the Catalyst Leadership Corps to place students in six-week internships.
What support do you offer for international students?
Career Development is partnered with the Office of Student Success and the Office of International Students and Scholars to create opportunities for international studies. We provide support for students to navigate the visa process they’ll need for internships and jobs.
