Interested in a job or internship that emphasizes sustainability? Look no further than the Career Development Center. The CDC offers numerous resources that allow you to connect with alumni working in your fields of interest. Any student can go onto the CDC’s website and fill out the Alumni Information Request Form.
Juniors and seniors can also use the online alumni directory, Mac-Direct to search for alumni based on their major, location, employer, occupation, job title, industry etc. Once connecting with alumni scheduling an informational interview is a great way to learn about a particular field or industry.
The main job-searching tool used by Macalester students is MC2 (Macalester Career Connection). On MC2 students can sign in with their Macalester username and password to access links to jobs, fellowships and internship postings. Through this database you can access postings from the Liberal Arts Career Network and Going Global, a database that contains country specific listings. Follow this link for a quick guide on how to use the Career Resources.
