These mentors can help you connect with all of the tools and resources Drew puts at your disposal.

Start to Explore Opportunities

Visit our Career Communities and Identity/Affinity Communities for mentors, experiences, events and panel discussions. Check in with the Center for Immersive Learning & Career Design for expert tips and personal guidance.

Thinking about a summer internship? It’s never too early to start. In fact, many employers begin recruiting in the fall! Head over to the Undergraduate Experiences and the Full Time Job and Employers section of Launchpad to browse internships and other opportunities.

Each Launch Community page will link to related student groups and clubs. You can also find an event or program hosted by Student Engagement that fits your interests. Keep in mind that leading or coordinating many of these opportunities can also count as an immersive experience.

Campus jobs are another great way to gain an immersive experience and establish new mentorship connections at Drew. Check out campus job resources here.
