Whether you have already chosen a major and know exactly what career path you want to follow, or you are unsure about whether to get a job or go to graduate school, we are here to help.
During your four years at Green Mountain College, the Office of Career and Personal Development (OCPD) provides thoughtful guidance—tailored to helping you achieve your individual goals—as you explore career options, acquire the skills to present yourself in a professional manner, and engage in satisfying and valuable work experiences.
- Beginning in your First Year, we offer guidance on how to choose a major and provide you with online skills and interest assessment tools.
- Throughout your Sophomore and Junior years, we help you write a compelling resume and persuasive cover letters, teach you how to confidently interview, and provide guidance during your search for fulfilling internships.
- As a Senior, we guide you through the graduate school application process or help you build your network as you begin your post-graduation job search.
Individual Career Counseling
We are available to meet with you personally as you explore your career interests and goals. We help you prepare tailored resumes and cover letters, provide constructive feedback as you develop interviewing and networking skills, teach you how to research employment options, and assist you with graduate school exploration and grant or fellowship applications.
Alumni Career Network
GMC’s Alumni Career Network connects you with Green Mountain grads who can help you uncover job and internship opportunities or provide information on how to land positions in your area of interest. Via FaceBook and LinkedIn, our alumni are eager to share contacts and job leads, give tips on how to prepare for graduate studies and provide valuable advice as you begin your career.
At the heart of this gathering is the essential question that many students at Green Mountain College ask: Can I pursue a career in which I make a positive difference in the world AND make a comfortable living?
Every Spring, the Office of Career and Personal Development collaborates with the Office of College Advancement to host a conference during which GMC alumni return to campus to conduct mock interviews and share information (via panels and TED-style talks) about their career path and personal journey to finding fulfilling life’s work.
Presentations and Workshops
Throughout the year, we offer in-class presentations and open workshops that provide insight into how to correspond with potential employers, successfully interview, network with alumni, use social media, scour the internet, and make connections to facilitate your search for summer internships and full time jobs.
