Summer 2022

This summer, you can...

Explore & Reflect

Where do you begin when you don’t know where to begin with your career path? The resources below offer a great way to start exploring! You can also learn about various career fields by taking a look at our Career Community pages. Each Career Community page is a treasure trove of information for specific fields and industries.

Network and Conduct Informational Interviews

Learn more about an individual’s career path and profession in a way that may inform your own journey!

Refine your professional documents

Use this time and the brain space to look at your resume and/or cover letter documents with fresh eyes — or create your first-ever professional documents! Our website offers the resources you need to begin.

Think about graduate school and fellowship opportunities for the future

For many, the past couple of years has led to reconsidering plans for the future. Our Fellowships 101 page can help you discover funding opportunities you never knew existed for graduate/professional degrees, undergraduate research, self-designed projects, teaching and service, and more.

If graduate school is newly on your mind, we also have a range of resources that can help you weigh your options. We also recently formed a partnership with Princeton Review that enables Wellesley students and alumnae to purchase test review products at a discount!
