SENIORS: COME BRAINSTORM ABOUT JOBS!

Dear IGS Seniors:

We’re very lucky to have set up a date when Jessica Paquin of the Hiatt Career Services can come speak to IGS seniors specifically about job searches for work in international fields.  Please come and learn:

  • How to use Linked-In and B.Hired Effectively
  • Which International Organizations are Coming to Recruit on Campus
  • Which Government Agencies are Hiring IGS Students

…and much more!

We will meet at 12 noon on Wednesday, October 10 in the Mandel Reading Room (3rd floor).  That’s next week.  Bring your lunch and start brainstorming!

This is the first in a series of brown bag “Beyond Brandeis” lunches that Dr.  Kristen Lucken, lecturer in Sociology and an IGS affiliate, will be hosting this year.  There are some great jobs out there and you’re excellent candidates: IGS will do all we can to get you on your way.

Leadership at Upward Bound

Philip Lu

The director, Ms. Hill Marsh’s words echoed time and again for me. “I believe in divine intervention,” she would say. According to her, we had a calling – to develop these young men and women to become college graduates and to live as productive citizens.

This summer, I worked for Upward Bound at Le Moyne College, a small Jesuit school located in Syracuse, NY. The program gives low-income high school students (potential first generation college students) better opportunities to attend college. The program strikes a personal chord for me. Thirty years ago, my mother and her siblings were enrolled in the same program; they all graduated from college. They had immigrated to the US from Taiwan only a few years prior, and their parents had not even graduated from high school. Because my grandparents did not speak English, the program gave their children an academic foundation they might not have otherwise had.

I had many responsibilities. Not only was I tasked as a teaching assistant, but I also resided with the students in the Le Moyne dormitories and served as a resident adviser (RA) and personal adviser. I worked alongside six other college students, who were also responsible for the students’ academic and personal growth. We collaborated on the students’ curriculum and harnessed our skills to make the summer a fulfilling experience.
