  • Find meaningful summer opportunities to bolster and build professional skills and experiences related to their career aspirations
  • Conduct successful job and internship searches, prepare and practice for interviews, and build strong relationships with employers and Wesleyan alumni
  • Research and connect with professional schools, graduate schools, and degree programs, craft competitive applications and navigate the school decision-making process
  • Transition to life after Wesleyan whether through employment, a fellowship, graduate or professional school, a service program, volunteer opportunity, or personal adventure
