Career Education

Vassar College

Are you, or is someone you know, in a position to hire an intern or an employee? Turn to the Vassar network!

Vassar students are great candidates for internships or entry-level positions. When considering your next professional vacancy, please keep Vassar students in mind. The Center for Career Education (CCE) offers a variety of ways to connect with Vassar talent, outlined below.

Post your job or internship

The Center for Career Education (CCE) uses a central database called Handshake to advertise job and internship opportunities to Vassar students and recent alums. You are welcome to create an employer account on Handshake to post available opportunities. Alternatively, you can email a complete job description to with the pertinent details. We will advertise your opportunity, along with a deadline date by which students must submit their materials via Handshake.

Opportunities referred by Vassar alums, parents, and other friends of Vassar receive a special notation in Handshake and are additionally posted on VassarNet, our alums and Vassar community mentoring platform.

On-campus and virtual recruiting options

We welcome the opportunity to host employers for information sessions and interviews, whether on-campus or virtual. Virtual sessions and interviews may be hosted via Zoom or the platform of your choice! If you would like to set up an information session or interview, please contact and we will assist you with marketing, set-up, and logistics.

Host a career conversation (virtually or on-campus)

For students, there is often no better inspiration for life after Vassar than to hear the stories of those who have paved the way. Consider hosting a “career conversation,” either virtually or on-campus. It’s a great opportunity to discuss your path and educate students about a career field, or share whatever advice or expertise you’d like to impart. 

Host a corporate/organization visit

Can’t come to us? We’ll come to you! (When it’s safe to travel, of course.) We’d love to visit your organization to tour your facilities, meet your representatives, and give you a chance to engage with our students in the New York area. We are also open to planning “virtual treks.”
