Reflect. Explore. Connect.
Reflect Explore Connect outlines the Hiatt Career Center's career development plan for Brandeis students and alumni. These three activities support:
1. Discovering a deep self-understanding and awareness of the career fields and work environments that match your strengths and help to forge an intellectually and professionally satisfying work life
2. Experimenting with your ideas about the world of work, meeting people who you think have interesting careers, researching graduate education options and testing out and gaining experience in real organizations and offices
3. Connecting with and competing for opportunities about which you are well-prepared and passionate
The Hiatt Career Center assists students and alumni in developing the skills to transform their unique backgrounds, liberal arts education and experiential learning into meaningful professional futures and relationships. Hiatt engages employers, colleagues, parents and the greater Brandeis community to achieve this mission.
