Networking Opportunities
Throughout the year, Career Services offers opportunities for students to network with career officials, executives, and alumni. These smaller engagement opportunities allow students to have more personal conversations with employers and alumni to build better connections. Following the Career Services Instagram page and reading the Career Services Newsletter will keep students up to date on upcoming networking events.

Graduate School Exposition and Career Fairs
Career Services hosts several fairs during the year to assist students in finding opportunities for the academic semester and for post graduation. In the Fall, Career Services hosts the Graduate School Exposition where over 100 different graduate programs come to Rhodes to meet prospective applicants on campus. Past attendees of this event have included national and regional law schools, divinity schools, medical school programs, and graduate level programs.

Career Services also hosts a Career Fair where both regional and national employers come to Rhodes to speak to prospective applicants and those looking for work after college. Employers who attend this program have opportunities for a wide variety of students and majors. This is a great chance for students to both network and research interesting post-graduate opportunities.

Mock Interviews
Students who want to review and practice sample interview questions can schedule an appointment with their advisor through Handshake.
