Last Call | A recommendation for Penn

(04/08/11 8:50am)

Whether they want to be politicians, filmmakers or social workers, all students seemingly have graduate school in mind for their future. Maybe they’re headed there next year to become a doctor. Maybe they’ll work for a year or two before pursuing a Master of Social Work. Perhaps they just see it on the horizon because their life plan includes eventually earning a Master of Business Administration.

Last Call | On the road (trip)

Over spring break, I — like many Penn students — made the trek to New Orleans to catch beads and eat beignets at Mardi Gras. However, unlike many of my peers, my trip did not consist of a brief two-and-a–half-hour flight out of Philadelphia International Airport.

Hunting season is underway — well, job hunting, that is. For the next few months, students from all four Penn undergraduate schools will unite in their search for the elusive summer internship. Whether partaking in on-campus recruiting or surfing PennLink, the general consensus among students consistently seems to be that one location reigns supreme — New York. Students recognize an established pattern in the life cycle of the Penn upperclassman — New York internship after one’s junior year followed by a return to Penn for senior year and then, hopefully, a post-college job offer that leads back to the Big Apple. Thus, in the summer internship search, many students often overlook a prime summer internship destination — Washington, D.C.

Last Call | More morning mail

A friend at Brown University recently messaged me about a great speaker who had come to her campus. She told me that the speaker was interested in traveling to Penn and asked if I could get the event published in our Morning Mail. Unable to admit my cluelessness, I drew upon the trusted Google search for assistance. Brown’s website explains that Morning Mail is “an electronic news digest sent to faculty, staff and students each morning.” Faculty, staff and student groups thus have the opportunity to submit major university news and events each afternoon to be e-mailed to the entire community the following day. Needless to say, once I knew of its existence, it seemed quite odd to me that this service did not exist at Penn.
