the amount of times i’ve reconnected with old dorm mates (from first year) and they’ve lead with “I have a boyfriend now…”
y’all, I couldn’t make this up. I’m happy for them…I just forgot this was a thing at wellesley college
and they make a point to say
"he’s from harvard"
"he’s from trinity"
"he works for the government"
I am listening to a graduating senior who said something super dope and true about getting a dream internship or job: “a lot of wellesley students put on this facade of perfection, when in reality it takes applying to tons and tons of internships and reaching out to people/networking. I’ve applied to hundreds of internships and jobs and most I’ve gotten rejected from. See what’s out there. Get a sense of what is right for you. Make a really good, clear case for why you’re perfect. Diversify your interests. By your senior year and you’re applying to jobs, be more targeted and specific now that you know what kind of experience you want to have and what places you want to work.”
On rejection: “it could be that you’re the right fit. It could also be that you didn’t make the case. Make the case incredibly clear.”
