I graduated in May 2017 with a double major in theater arts and psychology (Summa Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa). During my four years at Brandeis, I stage managed countless shows with the Undergraduate Theater Collective and the Department of Theater Arts. In addition to my work on campus, I also worked professionally in Washington D.C., Boston, and Williamstown. I am currently finishing up my second summer working at Williamstown Theatre Festival as a stage management intern. At Williamstown, I am an assistant stage manager on equity productions and a production stage manager with the non-equity company. I am relocating to New York City in September to pursue a career in stage management and my ultimate goal is to work on Broadway. I am looking to be a production assistant or assistant stage manager for off Broadway and Broadway productions. Working at Williamstown Theatre Festival for two summers has allowed me to work alongside and learn from some of the top theater professionals in the county. I am seeking career advice about freelancing in the New York theater scene. Any advice or possible connections would be appreciated.

My name is Nicole Lenchner and I am junior at Brandeis University currently majoring in economics and business. I am searching for an internship for this summer in finance, consulting, or accounting. I am wondering what the best method is of going about applying for summer internships. Most of the internships I have gotten in the past have been through very specific means and I do not have much experience searching for internships in any other way. I have been trying to look through websites like indeed.com, internships.com, Linkedin.com, etc. and am just wondering if this is the best way to go about doing this. I would appreciate any tips, advice, connections, or opening positions. Anything and everything is helpful. Thank you in advance.
My name is Quan Vu and I am a senior in Brandeis studying Psychology with a keen interest in Business and Finance. Recently I have discovered that I want to pursue a career that is a combination of my passion in counseling, helping people and my interest in Business and realized that I want to go in Human Resources/Human Capital, specifically in the subfield of Employee Relations. Having been a New Yorker for more than 5 years before getting to Brandeis, I wish to go back to the city after my graduation and work at the department of Human Resources at a big corporation where I could help contribute in the field with my experience and be sponsored (I’m an international student). I’m looking to expand my network with any alumnus who is based in New York City right now and to possibly be introduced to your colleagues at your company’s HR department. Please check out my LinkedIn if you wish to review my qualifications and please contact me if you want to begin a conversation.Thank you all so much for your time.
Hi, My name is Brandon Odze and I am a current junior looking to take two gap years between graduating from Brandeis and going to Law School. I would like to work in public finance, but was wondering if it would look better or make me look more appealing if I worked for a government agency or non-profit. I would eventually like to end up in business law but I also want to make my resume appealing to law schools and show that I used my gap years extremely efficiently. If you have any advice for me, please contact me. Thank you for taking the time to look at my Wisdom Wanted ad.

I am a senior studying HSSP. I am interested in the field of aging and pursuing work that benefits older adults. Ideally, I would like a job that allows me to use my healthcare knowledge from my HSSP courses and experiences in a way that relates to older adults. I am interested primarily in research and policy, rather than in direct clinical care such as social work. Work at a non-profit, policy organization, government institution or other organization interests me. Ultimately, I see myself attending graduate school, possibly pursuing an MPH, MPP, MPA or gerontology degree. However, as I am unsure yet what degree I want to pursue, I would like to gain experience before attending graduate school. Any guidance or suggestions on careers and graduate school are appreciated!
