As you move into the junior year, your advising needs are more specific. You are becoming more involved in your concentration studies and might even be studying abroad. In your junior year, you will consider career paths more seriously and start looking for internships. Using the network of advisors, you can reach out to a wide variety of resources that can help you with your specific concerns.
- Faculty Advisors: Similar to your sophomore year, you will be assigned an individual faculty advisor with whom you can meet throughout the academic year. Faculty advisors are available to have conversations about your course of study and career path.
- Academic Departments: In junior year, you will have many questions about your concentration courses and are encouraged to seek the advice of professors within your concentration departments. During course registration in the fall, some departments may offer large group advising programs or some opportunities to meet with faculty individually.
- Career Resources: As you begin to think more deeply about jobs, careers and vocational interests, we encourage you to meet with Amy Donegan, Associate Director of Career Advising. Amy has drop-in hours where you can discuss resume critiques, interviewing techniques, and networking tips. In addition, the Career Center’s resources, particularly EagleLink and UCAN, will be very helpful to you in your internship search.
- Peer Advisors: You also have access to the E&Y Peer Advisors, seniors in the Carroll School who hold weekly drop-in hours. The Peer Advisors represent a wide range of experiences which is why so many students find their guidance helpful in deciding on a concentration, registering for courses, getting involved on campus, studying abroad, interviewing for internships, and more.
