Each has a dedicated community that you can explore, including recommended Internships and Jobs at organizations that are currently hiring.
  3. Identifies & Affinities – We know that our identities shape how we experience the workplace. In these communities, we provide advice tailored for varying identities and affinity groups.

Each community provides different types of content, including:

  • Helpful narrative information and videos

  • Alumni connections, featuring individuals open to connecting with current students or fellow alumni to network and have career conversations
  • Featured classes and experiences to help you build skills
