Gaining experience in your field while you’re still a student is essential to your post-graduation success. How do you gain experience?  Become active on campus and develop your leadership skills through student clubs and professional organizations.  Volunteer in the community.  Research with a faculty member.  Study abroad.  Find a part-time job, on or off campus.  Finally – and perhaps most importantly – gain experience outside the classroom through internships – just like Kelsey!

The Graham Office of Career Management will help you identify and pursue valuable experiences that will make you competitive and help you gain the skills employers expect.  Imagine what’s possible!
