Pathways to Hanford

Pathways to Hanford Logo

Pathways to Hanford (P2H) is designed to support students exploring career choices at Hanford while also gaining insights of company values, types of careers, internship programs, desired skills and the hiring process. Through the program, students will have the opportunity to develop a professional network with Hanford contractors by attending networking events, workshops and drop-in hours.

Hanford On-Site events are regularly scheduled two-hour events that occur twice per quarter to serve as appointments and/or drop-in time slots. Hanford contractors will be present to answer your questions about their internship programs and their application and hiring process.

Applying to Hanford workshops will be led by CBC Career Services in the Fall and Spring quarters to support your resume building and answer your interviewing questions.
