First Year Visit

A First Year Visit is a 15-20 minute initial appointment with a career advisor intended simply to help us get to know you and your general interests so that we can best share resources and opportunities with you throughout your time at Lawrence. The visits can take place any time during your first year at Lawrence, however, we encourage all students who haven't visited Career Services to schedule initial visits. It does not matter whether you know what you want to talk about or do in the future; we will figure those things out together!

Is grad school right for you?


  • How might graduate school affect my career or professional plans?
  • Will the graduate degree enhance or narrow my employment prospects?
  • Am I burned out academically or anxious to continue with academic work?


What is an Internship?


The National Society for Experiential Education defines an internship as "a carefully monitored work or volunteer experience in which an individual has intentional learning goals and reflects actively on what he or she is learning throughout the experience."
