Though Endeavor will not directly connect you with an internship, it will open many doors for you. Specifically, Endeavor will give you tools to help you define and articulate your skills, the opportunity to explore career fields that will help you clarify your interests, and introduce you to many BC alumni. Additionally, participating in Endeavor will give you greater familiarity with the many services and resources available to you through the Career Center that will help you search for an internship.
As part of Endeavor, all student participants receive advice from participating BC alumni throughout the day in a variety or large and small group formats. New for 2021! You will be paired with a designated alumni mentor and you will meet with them twice for small group conversations.
Additionally, you'll be supported during Endeavor by both a Career Center staff member and an Endeavor Fellow. Endeavor Fellows are highly trained student leaders and former program participants, who will help you reflect on your experience during the program and empower you to reach your goals after the program ends.
