BardWorks encourages students to translate their liberal arts degree and skills into a rewarding career path. The program focuses on connecting students to the Bard network while developing their professional skills. Students hear from expert panels, take part in small-group discussions, and have the opportunity to be paired with a BardWorks mentor.
The BardWorks Program
BardWorks helps rising juniors and seniors apply their liberal arts education to the workforce they are about to enter. Drawing on the College’s extensive alumni/ae and family networks, we pair students with a mentor in their field of interest and help them develop interview, resume, and networking skills. Our ultimate aim: to create a community of leaders who will succeed professionally and make a difference in the lives of others.
