Jobs, Graduate School, and Volunteering

A Luther education prepares students for a number of future paths. But regardless of what they plan to do in life, our graduates leave Luther well positioned to do it—96 percent of Luther grads are employed, attending graduate school, or engaged in an internship or volunteer work within eight months of graduation. Below are a few of the services we offer to help seniors realize their goals for life after college.

  • Career Coaching: Whether your post-college plans are to volunteer, enter graduate school, or start your professional life, Luther’s Career Center will help throughout the entire search and application process, from researching opportunities to preparing applications to sharpening your interviewing skills.
  • Career Fairs: Luther hosts six annual events for approximately 300 organizations, including employers, graduate/professional schools, volunteer/nonprofit organizations, and summer camps.
  • On-Campus Interviewing: Every year, several dozen employers come to Luther to interview a few hundred students for full-time post-college employment. This means that many students are able to graduate with a career already lined up—without ever leaving campus. Adding to the convenience is the fact that Luther’s online career-management system, CareerConnection, makes the complete process entirely paperless.
  • Mock Interviews: Whether you’re interviewing for a full-time job, a spot in medical school, or a Fulbright fellowship, you don’t want to enter an interview unprepared. We help you sharpen your interview skills through tailor-made mock interviews designed to simulate what you’ll encounter when the stakes are real.
  • Alumni Connections: Personal and professional networking is a powerful tool in one’s career success. As a student at Luther, you’ll be joining Luther’s expansive alumni network, and you’ll be able to take advantage of the benefits it offers.
