Junior

You’re in your third year of college, with plenty still to explore. Now is the time when much of your plans will begin to crystallize as you refine your path and build on your networks and experiences. Keep taking steps to realize your goals!

Find Your Next Internship

Visit Launchpad to add another internship to your transcript. The Career and Identity/Affinity Communities and the Full Time Job and Employers pages are great places to start. Keep in mind that many summer opportunities fill up quickly (even before the end of the Fall semester), so check Launchpad early and often.

Expand Your Network of Mentors

Take advantage the Mentors page on Launchpad or Drew Connect to network with alumnx and other community members, whether you’re looking to land an internship or to learn more about a particular profession or pathway. 

Consider Graduate School

If grad school is a possibility, start your research now. Speak to a team member from the Center for Immersive Learning and Career Design or a Career or Identity/Affinity Community expert. Resources for students interested in pre-law, K–12 education, and medicine and health professions can be found on those respective community pages. Contact the Career Center to learn about requirements, deadlines, programs, and other considerations. Remember that you will have to register for admission tests!

Stay Involved on Campus

Step into leadership roles or join new groups that are of interest to you. Keep an eye out for events where you can network or learn more about life after Drew.
