We received the email below from our friends at Fullbridge, announcing a dramatically discounted rate ($1000 rather than the usual $3600) for their winter bootcamp in NYC and Boston. Students can apply for a PCSE Enrichment Grant to defray the cost of participating in this immersive learning program, which provides critical skills not just for those seeking careers in business, but also those seeking to become high-impact social entrepreneurs, non-profit leaders, and public service professionals. Oladoyin Oladapo ’14 is one of several Wesleyan students and alumni who have participated in a Fullbridge program, and she talks about it in this video.
Fullbridge will have a table in Usdan on November 19 (11am-2pm and 4-5:30pm) and an info-session in the Career Center that evening (6-7pm), and more information is available at bit.ly/wesleyan_fullbridge.
We are excited to welcome the Fullbridge Program to Boston and New York City this January 5-16. The job market is more competitive than ever, and we want to make sure that you’re ultra prepared to succeed during your internship experiences and land a rewarding position when you graduate.
