From the Lions Mouth: 
“The Center for Career Education has been an invaluable resource for me since I went to my first workshop, “How to Write a Resume.” I then applied to CCE’s Virtual Internship Program and worked for Community Enterprise Solutions, an economic development non-profit that works in rural Guatemala. When I was later interning in San Francisco, I was connected to an alumni mentor who gave me invaluable career and life advice. This would not have been possible without CCE.”
My Columbia Day: 
  • 9:00 a.m.

    Listen to the Romantic composers, including Schubert and Berlioz, in Music Humanities.

  • 11:00 a.m.

    Examine the differences between short-run and long-run competition in Intermediate Microeconomics with Professor Susan Elmes.

  • 2:00 p.m.

    Meet with an advisor in the Center for Career Education to discuss my internship at Impact Carbon, where I researched the way that environmental organizations estimate the sustainability of forest resources.

    Challenge myself with Introduction to Computer Science in Java, where we’re learning how to program different types of algorithms.

  • 8:00 p.m.

    Meet with the Peer Health Exchange, an organization that teaches health workshops to teenagers. As co-coordinator, I manage the Columbia branch, which is the largest in the country. Last year, we taught workshops to over 1500 ninth-graders in New York City.

  • 9:00 p.m.

    Meet up for practice with the Columbia University Marching Band. We play at all Columbia football games, both home and away. It’s a great way to show Columbia spirit and have fun.
