I want to get experience. Where do I start?

Getting experience means learning by doing. Experiential opportunities help you discover what you feel drawn to, demonstrate your potential, apply your skills outside the classroom, and figure out how you want to develop your interests, skills, and values in the future.

There are many ways to get experience. Explore a student organization. Get involved in undergraduate research, a job or internship, or a volunteer or service project. Take part in international programs or global experiences.

Here are some ideas to get you started around campus:

Still unsure where to begin? Connect with an LAS Peer Mentor at the Lisnek LAS Hub.
LAS Peer Mentors specialize in helping LAS undergraduates to identify experiential learning opportunities and to prepare application materials (e.g., resumes, cover letters).

Have you landed an internship or professional experience that is unpaid or underpaid?
The LAS Get Experience Scholarship supports students in gaining hands-on, career-related experience by mitigating the pay gap. Check out the eligibility requirements to see if this scholarship fits your needs.
