You made it! It’s your final year of college. You still have time to take advantage of everything Drew has to offer. Work with a member of the Center for Immersive Learning and Career Design to refine your career goals and review your readiness. Strategize with them and other mentors you have met along the way about additional experiences you can take on to further develop your transferable skills and professional readiness. Add additional mentors who can help you plan and achieve your goals—through graduation and beyond.

Research Potential Employers

Visit Launchpad and its Full Time Job and Employers page to explore opportunities and organizations of interest to you. It is not too late to land an internship, especially if you haven’t done one yet! 

Prepare for the Job Search

Visit the Career Center early to hone your résumé and get tips on networking, writing a cover letter and landing that first job. You should be actively searching and applying for positions that match your interests.

Continue to Network

About 85% of jobs are found via networking. So reach out to mentors the the Mentors page in Launchpad. Keep a lookout for campus events on the Launchpad events page and on our Career Communities and Identity/Affinity Communities pages. Panel discussions, guest speakers, and networking and recruiting events are always popping up—and are great for meeting people and expanding your network. 

Gear Up for Grad School

Be sure to give yourself plenty of time to finalize your grad school applications. Don’t forget to check on deadlines. Remember to line up references and recommendations from faculty.
