Internships and Careers

Meeting with advisors

Mount Holyoke's Lynk Universal Application Funding (UAF) initiative offers internship funding for one domestic or international internship to every student that has secured a qualified summer internship or research position.

  • Your professors may be a resource for advice on career questions in their field of expertise. 
  • Career Advisors at the Career Development Center (CDC) are here to help you develop strategies to find jobs and internships, improve your resume and cover letters, and access resources. 
  • Learn to conduct informational interviews and search the Alumnae Association Career Network to find alumnae who are working in relevant fields. They can provide valuable guidance when considering career options, including internships, jobs and graduate school.
