When Seniors Need Not Apply ... Because They’ve
Already Landed the Job

It is a well-known rite of spring for college seniors: looking for a job and comparing notes with classmates about the search or about offers they’ve received. That ritual takes place at the Carroll School, but not necessarily on that familiar timeline.

Increasingly, Carroll School students are leaving their summer internships after junior year with a job offer in hand. Or they’re lining up jobs in the fall semester of senior year, at least partly on the strength of experience gained during one or more internships.

By the middle of the spring semester, approximately two-thirds of Carroll School seniors know where they’ll be launching their careers. Last year, fully 87 percent had signed on with an employer by graduation. Most of the rest were looking ahead to other endeavors such as graduate school and volunteer opportunities; some were still negotiating or interviewing. Here’s a look at five soon-to-be graduates.
