Your To Do for Week Nine:
This week of Handshake’s #NoFailFall, carve out your place in Handshake’s community!
One of the best ways to help other job-seekers on Handshake is to review your experience in a role. It’s quick to write feedback about what you liked, what you wish was different, and advice for other students considering similar roles. You can also answer other users’ questions (such as “what skills will help me succeed as a summer analyst at a major investment bank?”) and ask new ones to hear advice from folks who’ve been there.

Bucket Lists are popular because they allow us to dream big and plan for things we want to do in our life before we eventually “kick the bucket.” So why not create a “Bucket List” for college? It’s a fun way to think through choices for your time at Middlebury and beyond. Let’s keep your dreams top of mind as you experience all that Middlebury has to offer. This program is designed for First Years and Sophomores, but all students are welcome.
