Job Search Guide

A career is more than a job; itís about how you want to live your life. You may build a career over a number of years, often with a series of jobs as well as further education. You may even have two or three different careers in a lifetime!

Hampshire students and alums have strong skills and diverse, unusual experiences that attract employers. To prepare for an effective job search, attend CORC workshops, visit the CORC web pages, and meet with a CORC career counselor to discuss your personal objectives.
