Career Preparations for Current Students
Our goal for current students is to maximize their Scripps experience. That’s why CP&R prioritizes meeting with the first-year class within their first three weeks of the fall semester to begin evaluating their skills and interests. Scripps students have the opportunity to speak with recruiters as well as attend virtual job fairs and participate in mock interviews.
Most Scripps students complete at least one internship while at Scripps, and many pursue two or more. Internships provide exposure and real-life experience, critical in today’s competitive world. Our students are offered paid internships at leading organizations, including:
- Girls Who Code at Intuit
- The Smithsonian Institution
Life After Scripps
CP&R serves our recent graduates through partnerships with employers, alumnae, families, and the wider community to provide resources and opportunities for students to land competitive full-time employment, fellowship and service roles, and gain entry into their graduate program of choice.
Scripps graduates receive competitive fellowships and grants for full-time study and research yearly at some of the nation’s—and world’s—top graduate schools.
