Im a senior currently interested in Business, but not sure what I want to do. I like finance, marketing, analysis, international business, and consulting, but I don’t know how to narrow down what I want to do. Until I know what I want, I feel that I can’t really connect with the right people. How did you start your job search, and how and why did your goals change? I have had several networking opportunities, interviews, and even internships, but I am unsure of both how to describe myself and to describe what I seek in a job, which could present an issue during interviews. That said, I would love to hear and speak with any and everyone, to really help me hone in my future. Thanks in advance!
I am currently a junior double majoring in Neuroscience and HSSP and am very interested in pursuing a career in pediatric occupational therapy. I have had experience shadowing and assisting occupational therapists but would appreciate any insight into organizations/programs that may offer interns a more integrated experience. I appreciate your time and insight.
My name is Danielle Mizrachi and I will be graduating from Brandeis this December. Ever since high school, I have been committed to learning more about social entrepreneurship. I believe that my majors in Business and Psychology and minors in Economics and Social Justice and Social Policy have truly helped me gain a stronger understanding of how business skills can be used to create social change. I have also become increasingly interested in corporate social responsibility. I am searching for an opportunity that will help me gain some more experience in the field, and am looking for advice as to how to pursue this type of career.
I am currently a senior with a variety of interests. I have been looking at job opportunities that combine the areas of business and law. In terms of business, I have been focusing on positions in the finance and accounting fields as well as business intelligence. With respect to the legal field, I am very interested in entertainment law, contracts, and business law (such as mergers and acquisitions as well as working with companies undergoing financial fraud investigation). I would really appreciate any advice from alumni who have some experience with either of these industries and suggestions or ideas as to how I can get my foot in the door. Thank you!

Hi! I’m a graduating senior with a double major in Economics and Business with double minor in Environmental Studies and IGS. I’m interested in pursuing a career in a field that combines both economics and the environment – resource management, environmental consulting, etc. I am interested in understanding the relationship between economics and the environment, and how economics can be used to better understand how to manage our environment. Particularly, I’m looking for opportunities in the San Francisco Bay Area – also looking for potential networking opportunities!
