Guest post from rising fourth-year UVA student Maia Rosewelsh on how her VAM mentor helped her narrow down and achieve her goals for the summer after her third year - and likely beyond!
A great first step toward an internship is to gain experience on Grounds. Consider student organizations, class projects, and other experiential learning opportunities to build transferable skills that employers will find beneficial to their organizations and provide direction for your search. Externships, job shadowing, and volunteer service learning are additional ways to increase your industry exposure and career focus giving you an edge as an intern candidate.

RSVP: Please apply to attend one of our events by filling out the following survey: Oliver Wyman Summer Reception Survey
