The Boerigter Center wants to ensure that every student is prepared for work and life by exploring the world and taking part in experiential learning opportunities.
There are many ways to explore and test out future career options:
- Participate in a DiscoverWork opportunity! Different from an internship, DiscoverWork opportunities are short-term, unpaid opportunities to shadow alumni and gain a first-hand perspective into their day-to-day work life.
- Conduct an informational interview. Reach out to alumni and friends of the college to ask questions and gain insight into potential career paths and/or create solid relationships to utilize in your job search.
- Find an internship! This is one of the the best ways for you to gain professional experience while testing out career options. You can participate in an internship for credit or not for credit.
