Career Communities

What are Career Communities?

At Earlham, we believe that your career is more than just a job—it’s a journey. And to make that journey, you’ll need guides, mentors, and connections to resources. To help with all of that, we have the Career Communities.

Career Communities at Earlham are centered around six career industry areas that Earlhamites often go into after college:

  • Entrepreneurship, Innovation & Creativity
  • Health & Medicine
  • Science & the Environment
  • Social Justice, Education & Public Affairs

 

Opportunities in Your Inbox

By joining a Career Community at Earlham, you’ll start receiving information from the CGCE about upcoming opportunities related to that community. That means special invitations to events, timely communications about internships and jobs, and much, much more.

A Network of Advisers

Each Career Community has an ever-growing network of people connected to it. These include career coaches, faculty, alumni, and employers. By joining a Career Community, you’ll be able to tap into a range of expertise in your fields of interest.

Join Your Community

It’s easy to get started. Just log into uConnect (see the top right-hand corner of this page) and fill out your preferences, making sure you select the Career Communities you’re most interested in. (We recommend you don’t choose more than three Career Communities at one time!) If your interests change over time, no problem. Just navigate back to your profile and change your selections.
