When should a student begin preparing for life after college? According to experts at Beyond Barnard, the first day of a student’s first year is not too early. And for alumnae, it’s never too late to think about new work and study options. Beyond Barnard offers a one-stop shop for career services, graduate and professional school preparation, research, and fellowships for students and alumnae alike. Here’s a quick look at the group’s first year on the job.
