Junior Year

As you pass the midway point of your Fordham education, what have you learned so far that has helped you develop your perspective on the world of work? How will you integrate both your skills and your self-awareness as you start to take steps toward your future career?

Juniors are asked to dream about what a fulfilling, well-balanced, successful professional life looks like, and reflect on how their journey so far has prepared them to engage in a profession. Some steps along this stage of your journey may include:

  • Focus on how you will articulate how your major classes complement your internship and leadership experience.
  • Research possible career paths and industries using the CareerInsights database. See where Fordham grads have gone before you and get inspired.
  • Grow your network: connect with Fordham alumni through events, the alumni directory, and LinkedIn. Discuss your career aspirations with everyone, including friends, family, faculty, and administrators.
  • Seek an internship that has the potential to lead to a full-time offer or that provides experience that will make your more competitive in reaching your goals.
