How can college juniors make the most out of their third year of college? Lisa Gavigan ’83, director of the Filene Center for Academic Advising and Career Services, recently shared some advice on the matter, along with other experts in the field, for an article published on the website NerdWallet.com.
Gavigan’s words of wisdom focus on studying abroad—an experience that fits in well with the junior year. She recommends that students arrange to work an internship while studying abroad or that they extend their stay with a job after classes end.
“Not only will you gain the experience employers want to see, you’ll also learn more about your city’s culture than you might’ve otherwise,” the article suggests.
Other junior-year tips outlined in the article include developing a professional online presence, interacting with alumnae/i and attending a career fair.
