As we rapidly approach summer break, we want to wish you the best of luck in completing your final exams and papers. We hope you’ve had a good semester and have exciting plans for summer.

While we won’t be maintaining our weekly newsletter over the summer, we encourage you to stay connected by following our career path pages here and here! We’ll be busy through the summer working on committee letters and advising students applying to medical/dental/veterinary school, but WE REMAIN OPEN TO ALL STUDENTS WITH QUESTIONS.

  • For technical questions about your professional school applications and deadlines, email Nicole.
  • To schedule an appointment with an advisor, email Mary  or Hannah with the topics you’d like to discuss and your preferred days/times.

Have you received an offer for an internship, full-time job, or admission to graduate school? Let us know!

Finally, we wish to congratulate all of our May graduates. We hope that you will stay in touch and let us know how you are doing. Have an enjoyable, productive, and safe summer!

Junior Developer Program at SafeTrek, Inc.

Deadline April 30th!

It’s 2018. We live in a world where at the push of a button you can have a personal driver meet you on a street corner within seconds or you can get your favorite meal delivered right to your door. But, if you’re in an emergency – like a car accident, a house fire or even a sexual assault – you’re expected to dial 911, find and say an address closest to you, wait in one spot and hope that help arrives soon? We think that’s crazy. SafeTrek brings an outdated 911 system, built for the landline, into the mobile age.

As we expand our footprint and offerings, we’re seeking junior developers to help advance SafeTrek’s API. Our API was created to save valuable time when our users were at their most vulnerable. To get first responders to the right place, faster. Now, we want you to join us and use what we’ve created to build applications, products, and services of your own that save lives.


  • Execute projects that utilize SafeTrek’s API to solve pressing social issues
  • Attend kickoff meeting (dial-in) and submit project concept
  • Finish project no later than 1 week from kickoff meeting
  • Demo project to SafeTrek engineer in closing meeting
  • Complete program exit survey to provide feedback

Citi’s Freshman Discovery Program

I wanted to share an exciting opportunity Citi is now offering for current first-years.  The Freshman Discovery program is a two day cross-business onsite program for freshmen who self-identify as Black, Hispanic Latino, or female.  The program will provide access to senior leaders, business overviews, case studies, and technical training to educate freshmen on the firm and the various program opportunities available to them. This is meant to be educational and to help set students up for success in the campus recruiting process. Following this program, there may be opportunities for students to take part in an accelerated recruiting process for opportunities during their Sophomore year should they wish to proceed.

Women who are interested in this program could become part of Citi’s Women’s Mentorship Program. WMP offers a unique opportunity for female applicants interested in Markets to be paired with successful women at Citi who come from similar academic backgrounds. Since its inception in 2014, WMP has helped young women coming from traditionally women’s colleges and liberal arts schools learn more about Markets at Citi and prepare for a successful career.

The Freshman Discovery flyer has more information on the program and how to apply. Additionally the application link can be found here: https://citi.avature.net/careers/Project?projectId=6445&source=Citi+Careers+Website
