Career Services: College at Rindge

Located on the second floor of New Hampshire Hall

Some schools concern themselves with narrow training for a single job. In today’s world of work where most workers will hold multiple jobs that span several careers, Franklin Pierce focuses on a liberal arts approach that lays the foundation for success throughout all phases of a student’s life. This well-rounded approach to learning is more essential than ever today and enables our graduates to thrive in a complex and competitive world and become positive contributors to their chosen professions and their communities.

quote The velocity of change is much faster than 25 years ago...and it's likely that you will have to reinvent yourselves several times in your career. But that should not scare you. You should embrace change because that is what keeps work fresh and interesting. A Franklin Pierce education will allow you to compete with anyone out there in the job market.
