Complementing the enduring capacities gained from an exemplary liberal arts education, the Hollins Career Center offers comprehensive career development, including individual counseling, educational workshops and mentoring/networking events involving alumnae and other industry experts, such as the annual Career Connections Conference. Our programs highlight the innovative mindset and transferable skills that ensure ongoing employability while encouraging our graduates to envision and lead lives of consequence.

Career Center advisors can administer self-assessment inventories, offer career/life design coaching, and teach the wide range of skills relevant to identifying employment opportunities and applying or interviewing for jobs effectively. Interactive online resources include the Career Center’s jobs and internships database, Handshake, which is available to all students and alumnae, along with the Big Interview web-based interview practice site. A videoconferencing area for interviews is available by appointment, along with a Business Boutique to lend attire appropriate for interviews and conferences.
