Preparing for the Journey
One of the Council's most successful initiatives to date is Preparing for the Journey. This program focuses on career and networking skills and is offered to female undergraduates of Boston College. Each program features the opportunity for students to discuss and network with talented and accomplished alumnae who share their stories and experiences. These alumnae also offer students their expertise on interviewing, networking and intern opportunities.
