During College to Careers: Lead, our career planning and leadership training intensifies to help Scholars transition successfully into the workforce.  College juniors, seniors and recent graduates can request a Career Mentor - a professional in their industry of choice - to guide them through career research and planning and connect them with opportunities.

Career workshops and one-on-one coaching sessions help Scholars explore career paths, write strong resumes and cover letters, and build interview and networking skills.  

Through our network of partner organizations and businesses across Chicago, Scholars are offered job shadowing, internships, and full-time employment opportunities.  

Our goal is to provide the resources, training, and network to help Scholars enter the workforce and become leaders in their field.  Scholars have access to networking events, professional round tables, and our network of career partners.
