Guaranteed Internship Program
Because Hobart and William Smith recognize how important an internship is in determining career direction, the Colleges have made a bold commitment: the Colleges guarantee that students of good academic and social standing who have successfully completed the Pathways Program, will be able to participate in one internship or research opportunity. In most cases, the internship will happen in the summer after the junior year. For summer internships that are unpaid, the Colleges will provide a stipend.
The Pathways Program Works
Our approach to career preparation is wrapped up in our Pathways program. It’s a comprehensive, action-packed approach that gets you thinking about and acting on your future. Through Pathways, you’ll research careers, spend time with professionals in the career you’re pursuing, take backstage tours of certain fields and find internships and jobs. We also bring professionals to campus to offer career insight and advice. We’ll keep you on track through workshops, experiential learning and career counseling. The Pathways formula works. HWS students who complete the program make connections that lead to promising careers or graduate school.
