"Recent studies indicate that 85% of employers and 100% of recruiters will look you up on LinkedIn before calling you. So if you are a user of any one of the social networking sites that have proliferated in recent years, such as LinkedIn, Facebook, or Twitter, there’s more than a likely chance potential employers have scoped you out."

Cancer Research Summer Fellow
German University of Colorado, Cancer Center

"Take thinking about science, we always think about something we know, something that always goes as planned; but in reality, it is full of surprises, confusion, mistakes, trials, and educational guesses. Through the internship, I learned that research includes becoming comfortable with unknowns, making errors, and the fact that I may need to start a project over again."

Alum: Jacob Law, '09 POLS Major
Exams Officer - Cambridge English Language Assessment
The Anglo Mexican Foundation - International Exams Centre

"I would say don't be afraid to take risks. If I had let the 'what ifs' stop me, I would have never learned so much about myself. Here in Mexico, my character has become much stronger and my own resolve even more so. I think that taking risks has helped me become who I am today."
