Hire A Colby Student

Our Philosophy

We believe in making it easy for our employer partners to recruit at Colby College by:

  • Collaborating with Bates and Bowdoin to give you the largest possible audience of talented and engaged students in a single evening
  • Building your talent brand on our campuses through co-promotion with student clubs, faculty, coaches, class deans, and other campus partners
  • Designing bespoke events tailored for the students you’d most like to attract

Why hire Colby talent?

Colby College students are…

  • High-achieving (9% admitted, average SATs of 1500, 90% in the top 10% of their high school class) 
  • Diverse (30% of students identify as domestic persons of color, 10% are non-U.S. citizens)
  • Intellectually curious (our students can choose from 56 majors and 35 minors, with 43% choosing two majors)
  • Experienced (Over 70% of the last three graduating classes have at least two internship, research, or global experiences before graduation)
  • Active (more than one in three students play a DIII varsity sport, Colby supports more than 100 student clubs, the Outing Club has more than 300 students)
  • Civically engaged (there are 70 active Waterville area community partners and an average of 800 students a year participate in civic engagement opportunities)
  • A source of tech talent (we have five interdisciplinary computation majors and a data science minor; 35% of computer science majors are women)
