ClaremontConnect is the comprehensive online communications and recruiting program used by CMC Career Services and the 7C Consortium. Through ClaremontConnect students can access the 7C on-campus recruiting program for hundreds of full-time employment opportunities. Students should carefully and thoroughly fill out their ClaremontConnect profile and educate themselves about the features offered on ClaremontConnect that will streamline their job search (creating a search agent, signing up for targeted emails, for example). Video tutorials for using ClaremontConnect are available on the Career Services webpage.
Sponsored Internship Program
Students are strongly encouraged to participate in internships during their undergraduate years, and one of the flagship programs offered by CMC is our Sponsored Internship Program. The Career Services Center coordinates this program which provides funding for summer internships in the U.S. and abroad. CMC-sponsored internships are an ideal way to gain hands-on work and life experience. During the summer of 2012, CMC supported approximately 120 internships.
Nationwide Internships Consortium
CMC shares internship listings with 16 other selective liberal arts colleges across the country. This consortium provides access to over 3,000 internship listings each year. NIC is accessed through ClaremontConnect.
Get involved and gain valuable experience
Volunteer in the community, be a tutor at a local school, lead a WOA! adventure--there are many ways to get involved and gain valuable leadership experience during your time at CMC. The Center for Civic Engagement offers many opportunities to share your talents or interests outside of your academics. This is a great way to learn more about yourself, what you are good at and what you enjoy, and it can bring breadth to your resume as well.

CMC Internship Database
One of the first questions CMC students ask when searching for an internship is “where have students interned before?” With the Internship Database, students can access this information from a single, electronic resource. Designed to be both an informational and networking tool, the CMC Internship Database enables students to: see which organizations CMC students have interned with; search past internships by location, industry and other criteria; and contact past interns to network and learn about their experience. As a result, the Internship Database streamlines the internship search, helps students find more fulfilling opportunities, and builds stronger ties between employers and the College.
