Career Development and Job Search Assistance

Are you looking for a new job or interested in changing careers?  Make the most of your search by utilizing the programs and services available to you through Career Services.  If you are an Arts and Sciences or Hamilton Holt alumni in the Orlando area, you are encouraged to take full advantage of our services, including workshops, individual appointments and other office-sponsored events. Our library has hundreds of resources available with information on the job search process, up-to-date job listings and company information.  Each spring we host the Career & Internship Expo on the Rollins campus.  Representatives from several diverse organizations share information on a wide variety of job opportunities. Individual career counseling appointments are available on a limited basis--summer is a great time to speak with one of our staff members.

 

Regardless of where you are currently located, you may benefit from our resources inside R-CareerLink including the online job posting system, Jobs for Tars.  The Career Services staff can also work with alumni via e-mail or scheduled phone appointments.  Browsing through our Web site can be a good way to get answers to quick questions regarding the job search or graduate school admission process. 

 

In addition, we can review your resume and cover letter and make suggestions for improvement. Just send them to the Career Services staff (careerservices@rollins.edu) as an attachment in Microsoft Word, or fax them to us (407) 646-2449 with instructions on how to contact you.

How Can You Help?

Become a Rollins Alumni Career Network Volunteer

Rollins Alumni Career Network Volunteers are a network of alumni designated on LinkedIn who are willing to assist Rollins students and other alumni with career preparation, transition, industry insight and related job search advice. LinkedIn is the #1 social networking site so it makes sense to utilize this platform as a mechanism for students and alumni to connect virtually.  We encourage Rollins alumni to become network volunteers on LinkedIn where they can share their expertise and time to help current students and other alumni in their career preparation and job search. While there are several resource tools available to those beginning or changing career fields, often the most helpful information is shared by individuals, like yourself, who are working in or who have previous work experience in specific fields.  To learn more about this program, please visit the Rollins Alumni Career Network Volunteer page.  

 

Provide Job Postings or Internship Opportunities to Current Students or Graduates

Does your company have a college recruiting program or provide internship opportunities?  Do you know of openings in your field that may be of interest to recent graduates and/or fellow alumni of Rollins?  Pass this information on to us so that we may let other members of the Rollins community know. 

 

To learn more about the Rollins Internship Program and how to post an internship listing, visit the Internship Posting Policies page. If you are interested in posting a job opening (part-time, summer, or full-time) to be made available to Rollins students and alumni, you may post this position by registering as an employer on Rollins' Jobs for Tars system.  Listing a job with Rollins College is easy and free of charge.  To post a position, visit the Post a Job or Internship page.
