The Center for Student Success and Career Development is here to support Trinity College students remotely.

We understand there are many unknowns right now that make it difficult to focus on your career, and that’s okay. We are here for you when you are ready with continually evolving virtual resources to meet your needs. Please work with us while we make this transition to adjusting our services. We are finding ways to serve all students through virtual appointments, email résumé and cover letter reviews, webinars, pre-recorded videos, and online resources. Regularly check back at this website for updates in services and resources.

Email us at careers@trincoll.edu with requests and questions.
