Course InformationBridges participants will attend a week-long, 1-credit seminar series aimed to equip them with the skills they need to be successful post-graduation. This intensive seminar series includes workshops on alumni/professional networking, the job search, personal finance, and relocation information.
Employment and Internships
Once accepted, participants will have individual conferences with a career advisor to work together in creating a job search plan and enhancing resumes and cover letters. We do NOT place participants but aid in the process and help identify contacts and resources.
By participating in the program and one-credit seminar, participants meet federal criteria to qualify for internships, should they choose to do so. Career advisors will assist participants with their internship search as well as their employment search. These internships may lead to full-time employment.
Before arriving in New York and Los Angeles, participants attend orientation sessions on the home campus, where they receive information on job search, internships, housing, transportation and academics. Once acquainted with the program, students begin searching for and applying to jobs and internships. For some, the process continues when they arrive in New York and Los Angeles. Others will begin right away.
Potential employment and internships sites that have worked with previous Elon students in NYC include:
- "NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams"
- Food Network
- Ella Moss
