Trinity College’s strong foundation in the liberal arts prepares you for a number of career possibilities.

To support you in connecting your academic pursuits to career opportunities, the Center for Student Success and Career Development has created six career communities, based on industry not major, to help you cultivate your industry-specific skills, connections, and resources.

Each Career Community provides:

  • One-on-one career coaching appointments with a dedicated Career Development staff member
  • Connections to alumni and employers through events and virtual resources
  • EXPLORE events, panels, and programs to explore career options within a community
  • Career Treks to local, regional, and national employers to explore companies and careers
  • Career Skills Lab sessions to build industry-specific skills
  • Online industry-specific resources to find internships, jobs, graduate programs and learn more about careers within the community
