I’m not sure what I want to do as my future career. What career exploration tools are available?
We have two really great career exploration tools you can use to help figure out what careers you might be interested in.
PathwayU is an assessment-based tool that will help align your skills, interests, and preferences with potential career options.
What Can I Do With This Major? is another great tool that lets you explore fields within your major to get a better understanding of what options you have with your degree path.
You can access both of these tools under our resources tab on the top left side of this page.
How do I find an internship?

I found an internship opportunity but can’t afford the additional costs (travel, housing, etc.). What options are there to fund my external costs for the internship?
One way many students obtain funding for their internship is through Sweet Briar’s Grants for Engaged Learning (GEL Grants). The GEL Grant can be used for transportation, relocation costs, and more! Each student is eligible to receive an award of up to $2,000 during their time at Sweet Briar. You can find more information on Grants for Engaged Learning and how to apply for them HERE.
I want to get a job on campus, does the Office of Career Services hire for those jobs?
Career Services is not responsible for hiring for on-campus student work positions. You can find all of the openings for on-campus jobs on the Human Resources page. However, we can help you create and/or review your resume and cover letter for the jobs before you apply.
