Guaranteed Internship Program

The Guarantee

Hobart and William Smith recognize just how instrumental an internship can be in determining career direction. To ensure HWS students have access to these important professional learning opportunities, the Colleges have made a bold commitment. Hobart and William Smith guarantee that students of good academic and social standing who successfully complete the Pathways Program will be able to participate in at least one internship or research opportunity. In most cases, the experience will take place during the summer after the junior year. For unpaid internship and research opportunities, the Colleges will provide a stipend.

The Pathways Program Works

Our approach to career preparation is wrapped up in our Pathways Program. It’s a comprehensive, action-packed approach that gets you thinking about and acting on your future. Through Pathways, you'll research careers, spend time with professionals in the field, take behind-the-scenes tours of certain industries and find internships and jobs. We also bring professionals to campus to offer career insight and advice. We’ll keep you on track through workshops, experiential learning and career counseling. The Pathways formula works. Students who complete the program make connections that lead to promising careers or graduate school.
