So you’re a sophomore now, and have a better idea of your goals and interests. Plus you’ve started building valuable relationships with faculty, mentors and peers. What now? Your first step is to generate the next steps in your plan with your faculty advisor or a team member at the Center for Immersive Learning and Career Design. These mentors can help you connect with all of the tools and resources Drew puts at your disposal.

Start to Explore Opportunities

Looking for an internship? Curious about what it’s like to work in a particular field? Now is the perfect time to explore. Sign up for Drew Connect and speak to an alum. 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.

If you haven’t joined a club already, have a look around the Undergraduate Experiences section of Launchpad (under “Explore Opportunities”) and be sure to look around all Career and Identity/Affinity communities. 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.
