Does a lack of summer internship threaten you're success in applications after graduation?

A summer internship during college is highly coveted but obtaining one is highly competitive and very difficult. Thus, by not having one in your second year of university, are you jeopardising post-university plans? Or will finding an alternative job or volunteering role be as useful? #college...

What time of year do most graduate job applications close?

Obviously I am aware it varies but is there a certain time slot throughout the year where most graduate job applications are open? When do they typically start to close? #job #graduate #job-search #first-job #graduate-recruitment...

Is taking a year out of university/college to gain a year of experience in industry really necessary?

Obviously gaining industry experience before graduating is great but how important would you rate it? Would it strongly differentiate between two potential candidates? How valued for a graduate job would it be? Even if the experience isn't completely relevant to the job. Are graduates looked...

Choosing a post-baccalaureate program vs. masters degree vs. non-matriculation to improve my grades before applying to vet school?

I am in a position where the degree I am receiving (BS, MS) does not directly apply to veterinary medicine. I have taken some pre-requisite classes ("pre-vet reqs"), but in some I have received less than stellar grades. I am also completely missing some pre-requisites like upper level biology...

What do graduate schools focus on in the admissions process?

I have heard that graduate programs will first look at GPA, which will then remove the unqualified students. #graduate-school #college-admissions #masters #college-recruiting #graduate-recruitment...

Should I spend less time and money in college but graduate with a less desirable degree for my intended career?

For a college graduate: If you could go back to your freshman year of college, what is one thing you wish you would have known, and one thing that you would do differently?

I know that now, as a senior in high school, there are a few things that I wish I could go back and tell my younger self... such as "don't worry about what other people think of you," "be more outgoing," and "apply for more scholarships your junior summer." In the same way, I am sure that...

Should I apply to MBB etc consulting firms in my final year or have a year out after I graduate and have more time to prepare for interviews better?

I am a UK business student wanting to apply to MBB and other similar firms but I realise that to pass interviews at these firms you have to do extensive prep work (50 live practices, 2 months full time, amazing maths skills, PST practice etc). I am worried I won't be able to do a decent job of...
