Kenyon’s Career Development Office (CDO) maintains information to help Kenyon students and alumni connect with individuals and companies willing to assist, mentor or house students who are exploring careers,and with internship and job opportunities. Students, employers and volunteers should be aware that the CDO does not vet or conduct background checks on students who may seek assistance, employers who may be offering opportunities or volunteers who may be providing support. Employers, students, mentors and hosts are encouraged to meet via phone or Skype prior to confirming any arrangements to determine suitability of fit and discuss mutual expectations. While the CDO is not responsible for what happens in arrangements that come from its networks, it is happy to assist students, employers and volunteers with conflict resolution and resources should difficulties occur.
