It's March Madness at Hiatt for Seniors!

Mar. 04, 2013

Seniors, it's hard to believe you're in the home stretch of your time at Brandeis. Don't get stressed; it's actually the perfect time to get in the game! Hiatt has a maddening amount of senior-specific career programming this month, and we don't want you to miss out!

Step on the Court: Meet with a career counselor one-on-one.

If you have no clue as to what you are doing after graduation, we can help you get started.  To kick off March Madness, Hiatt is offering 30 min. career counseling slots for seniors who are just starting to think about "what next" on March 7 and 8 from 8:00 am until 8:00 pm. Call (781) 736-3618 to make your appointment!

Steps to get ready:

  1. Call Hiatt to book a senior appointment at 781-736-3618.
