Gallatin Internships Alumni Panel

Internships are a critical part of the Gallatin experience—as is learning from Gallatin alumni! Hear from alums about their internship experiences, what key transferable skills they learned, and how they transitioned into the professional world. Learn best practices for online and in-person networking and get advice on how to stand out as an interdisciplinary candidate, bridging the gap from academics to non-classroom environments, building your resume/portfolio with meaningful and impactful work, and making the most of diverse professional opportunities while an undergraduate. Joining us will be alumni speakers who work in publishing, communications/media/journalism, fashion, the public service sector, and sustainability. Meet Diana Mendez, Gallatin’s liaison and career coach from the Wasserman Center for Career Development, who will share resources for finding internships online. Come with questions and an open mind!
