The University’s Office of Enrollment Management and Office of Career Education (OCE) have launched the College2Career Scholars Program, a four-semester program to build students’ professional identities and expand career opportunities.
The program offers mentoring, individual and group career advising, connections to potential employers, and internship opportunities including the Intern Philly program, Virtual Europe program, or the Intern Abroad program. Program participants will cultivate a personal e3 Career Action Plan, a step-by-step guide to professional development while enrolled in school.
“While [the College2Career Scholars Program] was not created as a response to the pandemic, I see this program as having a benefit of increasing student connectedness to Arcadia, one another, and OCE,” said Marissa Deitch, director of Career Education. “My hope is that students who participate will find a place of connection here at Arcadia and persist in their studies, participate in the Strategic Career Planning course, complete an internship, find their career direction, and build their professional competencies.”
Students who complete all four semesters of program activities will be eligible to become College2Career Scholar mentors to future participants, as well as receive a $500 grant for their tuition.
