Thank you in advance for your help spreading the word about this exciting career development opportunity!



Connect@WES 2016

Connect @WES: Creating Connections is a networking exercise and event for Wesleyan students of all class years and interests. Register to participate and meet with Expert Advisors (recruiters and hiring managers as well as alumni and parent volunteers) for brief, one-on-one sessions. By registering you are automatically accepted into the program and you will receive an email confirmation once the deadline has passed.

You should be prepared to answer the networking/interview question, “So, tell me about yourself,” in about 5 minutes. Expert Advisors will then use their experience and expertise to critique what they have heard. When the bell rings, you’ll move on to meet your next advisor. This structured speed-networking event will allow you to meet a few advisors in a short period of time and practice your “presentation”. Whether you’re preparing for interviews or internships, this event will help you to polish your networking skills!

Program House selection has begun, and House Hopping Day is this Sunday from 1:00-4:00.  I wanted to share with you Recess House’s expanded mission statement, which hopefully will appeal to First Class students: 

Recess House is for student groups who historically have remained on campus during school breaks, including low income, first generation and international students, for reasons of employment or the costs or time related to travel.  Residents benefit from not feeling isolated during times when there are few students on campus, having use of the large kitchen and common spaces that are shared with Full House, and being connected to supportive resources on campus. 

If there is a critical mass of First Class students in the house next year, it provides a wonderful opportunity for programming that addresses and supports their needs.  Please encourage students who might benefit from living in Recess House to apply, and if possible, to stop by the house (202 Washington Street) on Sunday to check it out.  The first round of applications are due February 17.
