Internships and Careers

Mount Holyoke’s Lynk Universal Application Funding (UAF) initiative will fund every student for one qualified domestic or international internship. Though some internships are formally structured with coordinators, applications and special offices, others are informally arranged through outreach and networking.

Meeting with advisors

  • Explore possibilities with your faculty advisor. Your professors can also help you with advice on career questions in their field of expertise. 
  • Define your goals and develop search strategies. Contact the Career Development Center to meet with a career advisor.
  • Learn how to conduct informational interviews with people working in the field and find alumnae through the Alumnae Association Career Directory who majored in Sociology or are working in the industry. They can provide valuable guidance when considering career options, including internships, jobs and graduate school.
