Life After Wellesley

A supportive series for new alums navigating Life After Wellesley 

Life After Wellesley is an annual program created by the Wellesley community, to support new alums as they navigate their first year after graduating. This year, the entire series is being offered asynchronously in partnership with generous alum volunteers, Career Education, the Wellesley College Alumnae Association (WCAA), The Office of Student Wellness, and Wellesley Human Resources.

Explore the following topics!

Hear from 2020 alums!

What has the class of 2020 been up to since graduation?

While the pandemic brought many economic challenges and changes to the employment landscape, the Class of 2020 perservered. 94% of Class of 2020 graduates were employed, accepted to graduate school, participating in a service/volunteer program, or serving in the military within 6 months of graduation. We hope it is reassuring to hear these recent alums offer stories of hope and advice, and to know that Career Education wants to support you in finding your own next steps into the world beyond Wellesley, too! Book an appointment with us on Handshake, and read more about a few members of the class of 2020 below.

Speak to many different people when you are deciding which schools to apply to and preparing your applications. Your professors and Career Education have valuable insights about different programs, your strengths, and how you can approach your applications. Speaking to them makes your application stronger.

It’s okay if things don’t turn out exactly the way you expect... and as I grew throughout my time at Wellesley, I discovered that I also wanted to gain experience in more people-oriented clinical roles.
