Boston 1-Day Student Technology Trek – Open to ALL MAJORS!

Are you looking for an autonomous work environment? Quick opportunity for growth? The chance to solve relevant problems? Then consider working in tech!

Tech companies are some of the top places to work for liberal arts students.

Even with zero coding skills, tech companies are always looking for liberal arts majors. There are many opportunities within the technology space for you!

If you’ve ever thought about a start-up or maybe getting your foot in the door at one of the Big Four tech companies, then apply for a space in the 1-Day Student Technology Trek to Boston:

Looking for a fun and inspiring way to spend part of your spring break?

The Center for Careers and Internships and Middlebury Professional Networks are partnering to provide a student ‘Tech Trek’ in Boston, MA on Friday, March 29th.
The objective is to introduce you to alumni working in all areas within tech companies – such as:
  • engineering,
  • product management,
  • advertising,
  • marketing,
  • new ventures

It is a great opportunity to be exposed to real-world professional experiences that will enable you to apply your liberal arts learning while informing your career exploration and other post-graduate planning.

We will spend the day visiting with alumni at Google (one of the Big Four tech companies), Wayfair (a leader in home goods e-commerce), and Cogo Labs (a startup accelerator), followed by a networking reception in the evening.

This trip is open to all students in all majors.

Preference will be given to non-seniors as the emphasis is on exploration. Submitting an application indicates a commitment to participate fully and attend all events.

Accommodations and transportation to and within Boston are the responsibility of each student. (For financial assistance, you may want to consider applying for an Opportunity Grant.)

Interested? Apply via Handshake.

Deadline is Sunday, February 24th at 11:55 pm.
Please contact CCI Advisor Mary Lothrop with any questions: mlothrop@middlebury.edu

Middlebury’s Annual Etiquette Dinner is Tuesday, January 29th

You might ask yourself, “Why would I ever need training in dinner etiquette?”

Great Question!

Every year, a few departments on campus get together to invite a professional dining expert to host a 4-course meal and workshop on dining etiquette for Middlebury students. This isn’t just about learning the finer points of dining etiquette, it is also about how to conduct yourself if you are invited to a job or internship interview that serves lunch, or if you are attending a formal alumni event where you will be mingling over hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. For some students, these situations can be uncomfortable and we have found it is helpful to have a few tips in your back pocket to ease anxiety. Think of etiquette as tool to allow you to relax and enjoy your meal without worrying about which fork to use or distracting people away from their conversation or interview.

You will cover such topics as:

  • What To Know Before You Go
  • Nametags: Where They Go and Why
  • Handshakes
  • Introductions
  • Body Language
  • Casual Conversation

Tickets are $5.00 and selling fast. Get yours at the box office today! go/boxoffice.  Limited seats available

Tuesday, January 29 at 6 pm in Atwater

Benefit from learning the life skills of networking at cocktail parties and dining in an appropriate way. Starting with tips from an expert, learn how to handle yourself with confidence, make introductions and work the room.

This event is part of the Life Beyond Middlebury J-Term Series (check out the full list of events here) and is sponsored by CCI, MCAB, Health and Wellness Education, and Professors of the Practice.
