Sophomore Career Connections Waitlist is Open!

Registration for Sophomore Career Connections is now closed as we have reached our maximum capacity of 200 students. If you'd like your name added to a wait list, please email Jannette Swanson, Assistant Director of Career Development, at jaswanson@vassar.edu.

Sophomore Career Connections is designed to demystify the career decision-making process and jumpstart your summer internship search. Sophomores will have the opportunity to meet with approximately 75 alumnae/i and parent mentors from 17 different industries, attend industry-based career panels, participate in networking opportunities (while learning how to network effectively), and tap into workshops and resources designed to help them pursue valuable summer internship experiences. The event is planned for the final weekend of winter break so sophomores can do all of this without having to balance coursework and other commitments. The program has an attendance fee of $100, which covers the cost of meals and lodging for Friday night through Sunday morning. Cost should not prohibit any student’s ability to participate. Generous scholarships are awarded to any student who receives financial aid at Vassar. Simply complete the registration form and Jannette Swanson, Assistant Director of Career Development, will contact you with more details. Registration is limited to the first 200 sophomores who register. Once capacity is reached a waitlist will be created. Fees are not charged at the time of registration; rather, a charge will be applied to your spring bill.
