June 14, 2022 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources

From the Advisor: 

Happy Summer everybody. I hope that wherever this newsletter finds you, you are able to get in some great time for R&R. It is so important, no matter how busy you may be, to take some time to just chillax. On that note, if you are in the DC area, one of my favorite events is coming up: the Smithsonian Folklife Festival. I would make it a point to check it out. 

Also Seniors, worried if you don’t have a job yet? That’s ok – we are Here.To.Help! That’s right, you have nearly full access to the Career Center for the first three years post-graduation. Don’t be afraid to reach out, RSVP for events on campus, and come in for an appointment. I’d also recommend this awesome newsletter created by Georgetown alum and professor, Jacques Arsenault: PostGradCompass. It has a lot of #adulting101 tips that are so useful as you start to build your life outside of school. Check it out!

Important update!!
While you were all busy working on finals, exams and other awesome projects, I was also busy in my own way & building a whole person! No, I didn’t get into cloning or building a robot of myself. I’m actually going to be heading out soon on Maternity Leave. But don’t fret – we still got you covered: 

  • Drop-Ins are virtual during the summer months, from 1-2pm on Tu/Thus. They’ll be coming back in person with the Fall 2022 semester. For the latest, you can always check here.
  • Government, Nonprofit & Education Appointments: Erin Feree, formerly of the Cawley Center and also a coach with the SFS Career Center and the CALL will be taking on my hours while I’m out. She is a wonderful guide and you will be in great hands. As always, appointments can be made here. Then go to “Industry Advising” → “Government, Nonprofit & Education.” If you don’t see any appointments, keep checking as it may take a week or two to get settled.
  • SFS Students: If you are an undergrad, you also have access to the folks at the SFS Career Center. Be sure to talk to Tina Gaddy, who does appointments on MNOs and International Careers, and Elizabeth Boesen, who does a lot with the various fellowship opportunities. 

In addition, be sure to check out the following lists, sign up for email alerts and also read this newsletter to find out some interesting opportunities for the fall months and beyond. 

Catch y’all on the flip side. And in the meantime, remember to be kind to yourself. 

Peace & blessings,
