The mission of the Career Development Office is to provide a set of educational experiences, partnerships, and services that affords students an opportunity to design effective transitions from Grinnell College to careers and post-graduate study. We advance our mission by embracing the mission, vision and core values of Grinnell College.

Statement of Responsibility
Employment and internship opportunities are the responsibility of the student and are not guaranteed or implied by the Career Development Office, the College or the employing organizations.
Students who register for events and appointments are expected to be present. If you miss one of the above, without notifying the CDO, you will be considered a “no-show”. You will be contacted via e-mail by the Career Development Office (CDO) and your access to that particular service will be suspended until you provide a written explanation. Arrive on time for your appointment. Students who arrive over 15 minutes late for an appointment will be asked to reschedule. Please provide at least 24 hour advance notice of cancellation, if possible.
Should you miss a scheduled interview, you will be expected to write a formal letter of explanation to the employer with a copy given to the CDO, as your behavior of not showing for an interview reflects negatively on yourself, Grinnell College, and the student body.
