Winter on Wyllys Provides Students with Career Development
Between Jan. 4-20, the Career Center hosted Winter on Wyllys, a series of programs that assistant students with their own career development. Students had the opportunity to shadow an employer during Winter Break; identify what factors may be influencing their choice of major or career path; explore internship and career opportunities online; meet with alumni; learn about a career in teaching through the Teacher Generation Program; and participate in an intensive two-day Wall Street Prep’s Financial Training Seminar.
From Jan. 11-15, students participated in CareerLab, a bootcamp style introduction to searching for internships and jobs. Students ended the week with an understanding of how to research fields and organizations, use LinkedIn and social media to engage with alumni and trade groups, interview effectively, and launch themselves as a professional in their field of interest.
In collaboration with Alumni and Parent Relations, the Career Center invited several alumni to campus to speak on career-related topics during Winter on Wyllys.
