Recognizing the work of Albright College’s Experiential Learning and Career Development Center (ELCDC), Albright College has been named a best college for career development by Colleges of Distinction.
With guidance from the ELCDC, Albright College students participate in experiences such as internships, study abroad and undergraduate research. Integrating innovative experiences with academic offerings, the college’s ELCDC team offers a variety of services for students, alumni and employers, assisting students in exploring majors, careers and experiential learning opportunities.
Collaborating with employers and community organizations to provide internships, service learning and employment opportunities, the ELCDC offers an array of programs, seminars and workshops to help students develop career opportunities, learn about resume construction, and build skills for networking and interviewing. It also supports student success with initiatives like the Career Closet, which helps to provide students with affordable professional attire.
The Colleges of Distinction honor recognizes schools with comprehensive four-year plans, advising and opportunities, such as those offered by Albright’s ELCDC.
“The Career Development recognition goes beyond mock interviews and job board postings,” said Tyson Schritter, chief operating officer at Colleges of Distinction. “Albright College brings career readiness into the classroom, making intentional connections between students of all majors and the careers they pursue after graduation. It’s the kind of innovative, ingrained career preparation strategies that make Albright’s outstanding career center worthy of praise.”
