Whether you’re interested in identifying your strengths, launching your career, serving the community, or pursuing post-graduate study, Grinnell’s Center for Careers, Life, and Service (CLS) is here to help. You can meet with CLS staff to discuss career planning; identify service opportunities; find internships and job-shadows; apply for graduate school or post-graduate fellowships; and hone resumes, applications, and cover letters. The CLS also hosts workshops and on-campus recruiting events; offers a wide variety of in-office, online, and printed planning tools; and supports Grinnell alumni.
