Post-College Plans, My Fellowship in Mexico

This year, I was honored to become one of the five lucky recipients of the Michael C. Rockefeller fellowship. Every year, a handful of Harvard seniors are awarded a fellowship for independent purposeful travel in the country or region of their choice in the year following their graduation.

I landed the job!

I landed the job!

After becoming the first in my family to graduate from college last spring, I began diligently pursuing the next step: my career. I knew that I wanted to launch a career in accounting or finance, but it was a tough job market, especially in those industries. I knew that I would need to use my network to be successful.

Once again, First Graduate was there for me. They connected me to executives and young professionals working within many of the companies First Graduate partners with-- companies as varied as Gap, Inc. and Merrill Lynch.
