Dear Hendrix Faculty and Staff,
of Career Services is here to help provide expertise and support to you as you
mentor our fantastic Hendrix students.
From speaking to Senior Seminar 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. See the options below learn more about the
ways our office can partner with you, your department, your majors and your
advisees. Give us a call, send us an email, or stop by the SLTC for more
The Office of Career Services prefers that students make
appointments so that counselors can be prepared for a productive meeting.
Students are encouraged to call or stop by our office (SLTC 224, (501)
450-1440) to make an appointment. We also offer “Walk In Wednesdays” every
Wednesday from 1:00 p.m.-4:30p.m. for students to be seen on a first come,
first served basis without having to make 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.
Our office maintains an extensive resource library with over
300 volumes for the Hendrix Community to use. Titles cover typical topics
like resumes, cover letters, interviewing, graduate school exams and
preparations, what can I do with my major, to more holistic topics like using a
liberal arts degree, discerning interests and passions, finding and playing to
strengths, etc. Encourage your students to use these resources 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, CV preparations
and reviews and many other services.
Also, our Resource Library offers
numerous books on preparing personal statements, researching top graduate and
professional schools, researching cities/locations 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.”
