As the fall term of my senior year comes to an end, the reality of entering the next phase in life is starting to hit me. The Career Center at W&L has been a useful resource in helping me figure out what to do after I graduate. We receive weekly emails with various job and internship opportunities available.
Additionally, W&L has its own version of LinkedIn called Colonnade Connections where current students and alumni can network. Students also have lots of chances to meet with alumni in person through events on campus, such as the Journalism and Mass Communications Ethics Institutes in the fall and winter terms.
Even though it all seems a bit overwhelming to think about going into “the real world,” I’m grateful for the resources I have at W&L to make the transition smoother along every step of the way.
