The Difference Between Finding A Job And Loving A Job.

At St. Olaf, we are focused on getting to know you and working with students from day one to help them explore jobs, gain experience outside of the classroom, and pursue meaningful post-graduate work, service, and education. Employers want the unique skills that Oles have — a liberal arts education with real-world experience.
