From the Advisor: 

Patient Trust
-Teilhard de Chardin

Above all, trust in the slow work of God.
We are quite naturally impatient in everything
to reach the end without delay.
We should like to skip the intermediate stages.
We are impatient of being on the way to
something unknown, something new.

And yet it is the law of all progress
that it is made by passing through
some stages of instability –
And that it may take a very long time.

And so I think it is with you;
Your ideas mature gradually – let them grow,
let them shape themselves, without undue haste.
Don’t try to force them on,
as though you could be today what time
(that is to say, grace and circumstance
acting on your own goodwill)
will make of you tomorrow.

Only God could say what this new spirit
gradually forming within you will be.
Give Our Lord the benefit of believing
that his hand is leading you,
And accept the anxiety of feeling yourself
in suspense and incomplete

Hey #hoyas – especially my seniors. I wanted to send you all this reflection this week – even for those of you who don’t subscribe to a particular belief system – because I think it is a great way to reconsider this weird in-between phase many of your find yourself in. Spring break is over, but there’s a warmth in the air that signals promise and adventure. And yet – there is still a lot of school left. For those of you graduating, there may not be enough time, and that ever beckoning thought of “what do I do now,” looms larger. For everyone, there is so much pressure to be seen as the person who has all the answers . And yet, most of you haven’t even started your career – nor even considered what that career may be. 

And being in such a liminal state is uncomfortable. We’ve been living with uncertainty for two years, on top of normal life transitions. While in some ways life seems to be getting back to normal, there is still that uncertainty as many of you face what comes after you walk out of the front gate. Not to mention what is going on in Ukraine, and the impact that the war there could have on many of your career choices, directly. It’s a lot. 

To that end, if you ever want to come in and just talk – know that I am here. We can, of course, talk about careers and put together plans to get you from point a to point b (that is, after all, my job). But I’ve also been through my fair share of weird transitions and times of uncertainty. The thing is while your peers may seem to have it all together, the honest answer is that most of them come into our offices with the same questions you have. And that is ok! 

In the meantime, be sure to check out all the AMAZING events we have, and the plethora of job and internship opportunities. 

All the best
