of Career Services is here to help provide expertise and support to you as you
mentor our fantastic Hendrix students. From speaking to classes to providing programs for student
organizations to meeting one-on-one with students or faculty, we are a resource
to help all students gain a meaningful and productive life after Hendrix. Whether it’s help with selecting a major, a
career, or a graduate school, we can assist in many ways. Listed below are several
ways our office can partner with you, your department, your majors, and your
advisees. Contact our office for more information regarding any of these topics, or to discuss additional partnership ideas not listed on our website. We look forward to working with you!
The Office of Career Services prefers that students make
appointments so that counselors can be prepared for a productive meeting.
Students may schedule an appointment with a Career Services staff member by calling (501) 450-1440 or stopping by SLTC 224 between 9:00 a.m. and noon or 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. We also offer walk-in hours every
Tuesday through Thursday from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. for students to receive "quick advising" with our staff on a first-come,
first-served basis without an appointment.
If you have specific concerns or reasons to refer a student to
our office, please feel free to contact us with the information you’d like us
to know. It will help us have a more
meaningful conversation with your student once he or she has scheduled an appointment.
Our office maintains an extensive resource library with more than
300 volumes for the Hendrix community to use. Titles cover typical topics
like resumes, cover letters, interviewing, graduate school exams and
preparations, and "what can I do with my major" to more holistic topics like using a
liberal arts degree, discerning interests and passions, and finding and playing to
strengths. Encourage your students to use these resources in SLTC 238 as they plan for
their lives during and after Hendrix.
Graduate and Professional School Preparation
The Hendrix faculty and major advisors are wonderful
resources to help students with graduate and professional school preparation. Having been through the graduate school
process, faculty are keenly aware of how our students can prepare and apply for
graduate programs successfully. The
Office of Career Services can also provide guidance and assistance with
application materials. In particular, we
provide personal statement and essay reviews, mock interviews, and curriculum vitae preparations
and reviews. Also, our Resource Library offers
numerous books on preparing personal statements, researching top graduate and
professional schools, researching geographic areas for quality-of-life data and
statistics, and many other resources. Let
us partner with you to provide a well-rounded group of eyes and ears for your
students heading towards post-graduate study.
