Exploring Internship Opportunities and

Career Paths as an HSSP Major

“What do I have to do to get an internship?”

“What do I have to do to get a job?”


This event will explore how Brandeis HSSP majors can and have put their knowledge and skills

to work in professional settings, including internships and careers. We will host a number of

current HSSP students and alumni who will share their experiences with internships and

understanding of how you can make solid career choices consistent with your HSSP major.

This event is open to the entire Brandeis community. Light refreshments will be served. Co-
