Government and Non-Profit – Upcoming Events, Opportunities and Resources

From the advisor:

A rapid unscheduled disassembly (new window)” aka: a reflection on Failure

Hey Hoyas! I know that you are all up to your eyeballs in preparation for finals and life this summer or after graduation. And I know that one area where many of you are understandably nervous is the area of career, and how your academics may/may not help prepare you for you future. Many of you are nervous, and understandably so, of anything less than perfection. That perfect 4.0 GPA. The perfect internship. The perfect first job. The perfect spouse. I could go on and on. And while hard work is definitely going to get you far… expecting perfection will ultimately lead to failure in some way, shape, or form. 

But – c’est la vie.

The fact is, failure is a part of life. I mean, look at what happened with the SpaceX launch this week… on a very public stage, the launch failed. I mean literally – kaboom the rocket, worth how many billions of dollars of time and money… just poof gone! I mean talk about public failure. And yet, what did I hear when I was watching the launch? Well, first a gasp, but then an astounding amount of well-earned cheers and applause. What’s that… applause for failure? Well, yeah! And the fact is we should clap for failure more often. The cool thing about this failure is just how much the scientists in charge will learn from this failed experiment. That’s what experiments and science are all about, right? Getting things wrong, and learning from them. 

As you enter these final days, by all means, please do your best! But remember that failure will happen to everyone at some point in your life. It is important to celebrate those as much, if not more so, than our successes. For how else can we learn? 

In the interim, there are still so.many.possibilities out there for jobs and internships. Please read this newsletter in detail and check out the wonderful organizations still seeking help this summer and for FT positions. Be sure to check my schedule for new appointment times, as well. 

Peace & good luck on finals!
