Career Services at Clark and the LEEP initiative were recognized in a roundup of “20 Colleges with the Best Career Services,” designated by Best Colleges Online in a July 4 blog post highlighting institutions that “really stand out for what they have to offer students who are entering one of the toughest job markets in recent history.” Here is what the post had to say about Clark:
“Some of the students who’ve been hit hardest by the poor job market are those in the liberal arts. Clark University is one school trying to rectify that problem. The school has created Liberal Education and Effective Practice, or LEEP, which helps to guide students both through their academic training and in building professional skills. The career services department helps these students, and others at the school, to take part in career workshops and alumni mentorships, and even freshmen are encouraged to plan internships and research projects. In addition, Clark’s students can take advantage of a resume builder, an online interview practice program called InterviewStream, and a number of useful how-to guides.”
Among the 20 institutions on the list are Clemson, Wake Forest, Yale, Northeastern and Notre Dame.
