Presented by the Center for Careers and Internships and co-sponsored by departments, these Field Guides bring alumni back to campus to share knowledge and experience related to their post-Middlebury careers and professional lives.

Field Guides help students think broadly about where their academic work may lead them in a professional context by giving them the information they need to think critically about what they’ll do with their liberal arts major or degree after Middlebury.

Field Guide Features

  • Alumni Panels: Learn how certain majors can lead to varied experiences and career trajectories. 
  • One-on-One Career Conversations: Connect with the alumni panelists who have volunteered to meet you.

Upcoming Field Guides

We’ve finished our Field Guides for 2023-2024. Stay tuned for the 2024-2025 schedule coming this fall!

“I used to attend all of the Field Guide dinners at Atwater, and I credit those experiences with my ability to network professionally with folks who might seem unapproachable. I learned that most people genuinely want to help students and young professionals in their career journey.”
