Main Hall to House Agnes Scott's New Center for Career Discovery and Professional Success

Agnes Scott’s commitment to career exploration and discovery will be realized through the creation of the Center for Career Discovery and Professional Success in the most iconic building on the college’s campus, Main Hall. A comprehensive resource and experiential venue, the center will integrate curricular, team-based advising and co-curricular programming in one campus space. It will facilitate individualized professional development opportunities and career exploration for students, leverage on- and off-campus partnerships to benefit students’ career wellness and create pathways for experiential learning. In this envisioned space, students will be empowered through career communities, career readiness competencies and career programming to foster their success to attain lifelong career fulfillment.

The center will feature interview rooms for students to meet, interview and be hired by talent professionals from the for-profit, nonprofit and government sectors students as interns and employees, as well as a career bar akin to Apple’s genius bar where students will be able to drop-in or schedule appointments with career coaches.

"More intentional career exploration and discovery has allowed all students, especially those from lower-income and first-generation backgrounds, to take advantage of the full breadth of the opportunity afforded by a liberal arts education more confidently and knowledgeably," said Dawn Killenberg, executive director of the Office of Internship and Career Development. "I am excited about how the creation of a dedicated physical space will enhance the work underway in our strategic plan Pathways to Success 2026 for the good of all Scotties."

“If Main went, a lot of memories would leave. It's a place where people made lifelong friendships, made memories that shaped their lives. For over a hundred years, it has been the center of all Agnes Scott alums' lives at one point. It needs to be here, for tradition's sake.”
