Counselor on Call/Quick Questions/Candy & Career Chats

When students need our advice on the fly or have a last minute deadline:

  • Counselor on Call: Students can chat with a career counselor without an appointment on Tuesdays 11:30am to 1:30pm and Fridays 2:00pm to 4:00pm.
  • Candy & Career Chats: Students can find a Career Counselor in Farinon each Monday afternoon from 3:00pm to 4:00pm to answer career questions and grab a piece of candy!

Recruiters In Residence

Throughout the fall and spring semesters, employers visit campus to conduct mock interviews. Space is limited; students can see who’s coming, see the schedule, and sign‐up on CareerSpot.

Career Closet

Students can borrow professional attire for interviews to help them feel confident and make a good first impression. They may stop in during business hours to browse.

Summer Funding Resources

Through the generosity of Lafayette alumni & parents, the Gateway Career Center has funds available to support students doing unpaid, underpaid, or high-cost summer internships. Applications become available early in February, so it’s advantageous for your student to use time during the Interim break to begin thinking about applying.

  • Stipends of $1,000 to $3,000 are awarded annually. Students do not need to have an internship secured in order to apply! The Robert Beane ’58 Intern Scholar Program awards $4,000 to successful applicants and pairs them with a mentor in their general area of interest. Beane applicants must have an internship secured to apply (if not selected, they’re then considered for a Stipend.)

All details will be widely marketed to students across all our platforms, to ensure awareness of timelines, eligibility, and application instructions.
