Advice on Finding a Job/Internship
Kenyon College provides an excellent "thinking education" that allows students to succeed in many areas. The CDO (Career Development Office) offers resources to help students find jobs and internships, including its unique externship program. Externing, or interning for a very short time, with a Kenyon alum is a popular option and can help build contacts in the professional world before graduation.
