A First-Year Career Retreat

Retreat dates: Saturday, January 21st & Sunday, January 22nd, 2023
Deadline to register: Friday, December 9th, 2022

Career Education is excited to offer Embark! A First-Year Career Retreat for all interested first-year students. This free weekend-long immersive program will allow you to feel equipped with a metaphorical backpack of tools you’ll need to begin your career exploration.

Join us to connect with Career Education, discover how to identify and utilize your values and strengths through our assessments and activities, hear career stories from Wellesley alums, and learn about the variety of opportunities that are available to you as a Wellesley student, like funded internships, study abroad, and research.

This is a great place to start your career exploration, and we'll have fun along the way! 

Plus: Embark participants are eligible for summer 2023 Hive Internship Projects!

All Embark participants will also be eligible to apply for our summer 2023 Hive Internship Projects (HIPs). Hive Internship Projects are short-term experiences that are designed by unbundling long-term internships and separating out individual projects. These are great opportunities for first-year students to learn new skills, make connections with our alums and employers, and try out something new during their first summer. First-year students will only be eligible for summer 2023 HIPs if they complete Embark. More information to be provided in the spring semester.
