I am an Economics major looking at career options in California (L.A. or San Francisco preferably) and am very open to different positions. I am particularly interested in careers that are marketing-related and am looking into advertising agencies. Any advice on where to start, especially without a major in marketing, would be helpful. Thank you!!

Hello! My name is Naomi Rodriguez-Finer and I’m a graduating senior ready to pursue a career in entertainment in the city of Los Angeles. I’m aiming to start as a PA and learn as much as I can. Moving across the country feels like a big step and I’m sure there are a number of ways to avoid some common mistakes. I would like to ask anyone who has ever moved house for advice on how you handled the move, where you found housing, transportation, etc. Did you have a secured job before you moved? Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

Hello, my name is Daniel Yao, a senior about to graduate with a double major in chemistry and business. My unique background provides me with a more analytical base that I want to use in a business/finance setting. I have been an active member in the Brandeis community, from being a TA for Financial Accounting to working at Brandeis’ Student Financial Services, where I work with the Department of Education and other companies to promote responsible financing, to the Global Microfinance Brigade, where I lead a group of students on volunteer missions in impoverished nations like Honduras. If you have any career advice or job leads where I can continue to explore the business/finance industry, I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to talk with you! Thank you for your consideration!

I am a current senior searching for a year-long entry level job after graduation beginning in July 2016. I am interested in either clinical research or public health initiatives involving nutrition. I have a passion for medicine, public health, nutrition, and pediatrics. I have a wealth of clinical knowledge I can bring to the table, being a nationally registered EMT and having shadowed surgeons and an internal medicine doctor. I also have worked with young children for the past four out of five summers. Additionally, I have taken several public health courses including topics such as epidemiology and American healthcare. I am planning on taking psychological statistics next semester. I am unsure where or how to start my search and am looking forward to any suggestions and advice the alumni community may have.

I am a Studio Art (painter) major graduating this May. I am also the Marketing and Communications intern at Hiatt Career Center, President of the Student Committee for the Rose Art Museum, and a Roosevelt Fellow (peer academic advisor for first year students). I would love to hear from alums and parents who also have BAs in Fine Arts and have pursued careers in visual arts, museums, galleries, arts non-profits and higher education. What kinds of paths did you take to get to where you are today? What cities are best for young artists? As a person dedicated to making art, how did/do you manage to earn a living while making your art? For those who did not go down a studio route, how did you get involved in the museum or gallery world? What kinds of opportunities exist in the marketing and communications fields for the art world?
