With the Class of 2024 entering their senior year at Bowdoin, Career Exploration and Development (CXD) has begun to offer a new workshop series to help seniors discover possible career paths. Titled “Senior Week,” the program was filled with various industry-specific events and other career exploratory events including a networking workshop.
Sophomores attended the various workshops, networking events and panels offered by Career Exploration and Development (CXD) for the fifth iteration of Sophomore Bootcamp last week. For CXD, the goal of Bootcamp is to provide students with an opportunity to explore potential career paths while also developing skills and resources that will aid them in their job search, including resume building, cover letter writing and networking.
Announcing that it entered into a partnership with Northeastern’s Roux Institute in Portland, the College can offer more academic and professional development opportunities for STEM students, including internships with local startups and a potential “four-plus-one” program for computer science majors beginning as early as fall 2023.
As the Class of 2021 enters their final semester, seniors are planning for life after Bowdoin. For international students, however, the matter is much more complicated. Some will return to their home country and some will explore other countries, while others are intending to stay in the United States to pursue citizenship and a career here.
Students taking personal leaves of absence (PLOA) for the 2020-2021 academic year may have to contend with a variety of policies regarding which College resources are available to them during their leave, according to the College’s Spring 2021 FAQ page updated Thursday.
Despite challenges presented by COVID-19 and a remote semester, Career Exploration and Development (CXD) is finding ways to support Bowdoin students from a distance as they explore different career paths. The CXD eXplore Series, which began last weekend and continues this Saturday, brings together students and alumni to discuss possible career paths.
