Winter on Wyllys 2016

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to come back to Wesleyan a week early over winter break to jumpstart your job/internship search or focus on your personal career development without the stress of classes and activities getting in the way.

The Career Center is offering the following two classes from January 11th – 15th:

Careers by Design Do you know what you want to do when you graduate? Next summer? Even next semester? Careers by Design is a week-long program designed to help you identify what factors may be influencing your choice of major, internship, or career path, and help you to be mindful of your decisions and do what is right for you regardless of what messages you may be receiving from others. Careers by Design will run in the mornings only.  CareerLab CareerLab is a week-long, boot camp style introduction to everything you need to know to start your internship or job search. You will come out of the week with an understanding of how to research fields and organizations, make full use of LinkedIn to engage with alumni and trade groups, interview effectively, and launch yourself as a professional in your field of interest. CareerLab will run in the mornings only.  These classes run concurrently and cannot be taken at the same time. There is a $100 materials fee to participate. Financial Aid is available and housing is included. Students must register on CareerDrive and fill out Res Life’s Housing Form by 12pm on December 2nd to participate. 

The Career Center is also partnering with Wall Street Prep to offer an intensive 2-day training seminar to equip students with the financial skills they need to be successful in the recruiting process for positions in investment banking, corporate finance, private equity, business development, capital markets, and equity & credit research. Upon course completion, students receive high-quality materials and access to resources that enable them to revisit concepts as they prepare for interviews, internships, and full-time positions. The cost of the program Is $199. Financial aid is available and students should contact the Career Center at 860-685-2180 to request a fee waiver.
