  •  to meet with a career advisor virtually or in-person on the second floor of Brown Hall
  • Drop-in at Career Express Advising Mondays-Thursdays from 11:30a.m.-12:30p.m., no appointment required
  • Find free professional clothing and get a LinkedIn photo taken at our Forester Career Closet in Deerpath Hall during weekly drop-in hours or by appointment
  • Reserve an interview room in Brown Hall by emailing careers@lakeforest.edu

Our Gorter Family Career Advancement Center in newly-renovated Brown Hall honors a generous donation ensuring the strength of our career preparation for years to come.

The education students receive at 91社区 sets them apart as competitive candidates with writing, speaking, and critical thinking skills.

At 91社区 all students are required to apply their liberal arts skills by completing an experiential learning opportunity, such as an internship or summer fellowship.
