Career Connections & Community Engagement

Internships and Jobs

It is important to assess your interests and learn more about various occupations through websites like O*NET, CareerInfo, CollegeGrad and Vault Reports.   

General Internship and Job Search

As you research opportunities, take a look at Bureau of Labor and Statistics and CareerBeam to understand current employment  and industry trends. Learning about the general salary of an employee in your field is also helpful.

To find employment opportunities targeting Mills students, visit Handshake and some of our recommended job and internship search engines.


Networking is becoming increasingly important in the employment search. Being in contact with others in your field may assist you in getting internship and job referrals.

Join "Mills College Connections" on LinkedIn to connect with current students, alum, and friends of Mills College.


Interviewing is a skill; the more you practice, the better you will be at it. Start preparing by reviewing Typical Interview Questions and following the Top Ten Interview Etiquette Tips. Remember to follow up with your interviewer with a post interview thank you letter. 

Academic Credit for Internships

Juniors and Seniors are eligible to receive academic credit for internships. If interested in receiving credit, follow these guidelines and fill out the Internship Learning Contract and the Petition for Academic Internship Credit form.  Schedule an appointment on Handshake to have your documents signed at least a week before the submission deadline.  Turn in the documents, along with the Registration/Add/Drop form by the date listed below.
