Being Contacted by a Student?
Have you heard from a Sweet Briar student recently? As students pursue internships and plans for after graduation, we often encourage them to contact alumnae. There certainly is no expectation that you will place them in an internship or a job, we simply feel that talking with current students about your experience after graduation is extremely beneficial to them. Please feel free to provide them any insight about your career path, the ups and downs you faced along the way and any advice or networking opportunities you might have available.
