Prepping for What Comes Next

For when real life seems a little too close for comfort.

If you’re a senior, or maybe just thinking ahead to the next step, consider lightening your load next week to make time with some experts in life after college. The Office of Career Development and Residential Life’s Senior Experience program will be in overdrive with three different events: Project Interview, the Senior Experience Crossroads Conference, and Women and Workplace Harassment.

Project Interview
Some people get nervous when they go in for a big interview, or completely blow it because they’re over-confident in their resume or recommendations. Project Interview can help with that; it is an interviewing bootcamp being run by Career Development open to all years on February 15. It starts with morning sessions being presented by President Debora Spar, Brandon Holley (Editor in Chief of Lucky Magazine and Barnard class of 1989), and Raleigh Mayer (Raleigh Mayer Consulting). In the afternoon are mock interviews so that you’re not caught off-guard. Applications are open until February 10.

Senior Experience Crossroads Conference
Two days later is the Senior Experience Crossroads Conference, which will offer firsthand accounts on how to navigate the transition to the post-grad world. It starts off with an alumna panel. Following this event are breakout sessions dealing with everything from finding an apartment to staying connected with Barnard after graduation. The day ends with a keynote from President Debora Spar and a networking reception. Seniors can register here.

Women and Workplace Harassment
The final event is once again open to all students, Women and Workplace Harassment. This event, detailing the rights and procedures that women can take in cases of discrimination and harassment, will be lead by Barnard’s Title IX Coordinator Amy Zavadil. It will be held on Tuesday, February 19 at 6pm in the Career Development Office in Elliott Hall.

These events, part of the Senior Initiative, will provide an excellent opportunity for students to prepare for life after Barnard with important tips for success.
