Advising at Beyond Barnard
Beyond Barnard holds more than 4,000 one-on-one advising engagements annually. We cover everything from resumes, CV's, and cover letters, to graduate and professional school applications, interview strategies, negotiation best practices, and navigating a range of workplaces and career searches. Beyond Barnard also continues the College's decade-long commitment to mentorship, matching more than 200 students to individual and group mentoring opportunities.
From day one Barnard, throughout your matriculation, and for a lifetime as an alumna you have access this distinctive support. Students and alumnae can make appointments at Handshake.
Don't know what you're interested in yet? Don't worry! A lot of our advising conversations and events center on the process of exploration and discernment. There's no wrong time to start visiting Beyond Barnard! We serve all students and alumnae of the College.
No matter what stage you are at in your exploration of opportunities (whether you are just starting to think about options, or are in the middle of applying for an internship, job, or fellowship), we welcome you to visit us on the second floor of Elliott Hall. Email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
