Career Planning

Scripps students display multiple talents, aptitudes, and abilities that can be applied to a multitude of occupations. That can make the process of finding the perfect career, encompassing all of your passions, a daunting task!

Our Career Planning & Resources (CP&R) staff has years of experience helping students to envision, formulate, and move towards future goals. They have a wide range of tools such as an Action Plan that gives you year-by-year directions to help you explore, test, and find a new career.

The CP&R office also offers a centralized, online system for Scripps students to explore employment opportunities, including internships, Work Study positions, fellowships, and other career-related options. Thousands of internships and fellowship listings can be accessed through our membership with the Nationwide Internships Consortium (NIC), and students can network with Scripps alumnae through Life Connections, our online alumnae volunteer database.
