Work. Serve. Learn.

What are my work options?


You may know that many employers want students to do internships. The reason for that is because this work experience – the internship – will help you develop skills that you will bring to your first job.

Here are several options for getting “work” experience this summer.

What are my serve options?


Serving others is a great way to develop skills and relationships. The skills you use communicating with people in need translate into other workplaces. And the trust you build with someone in need of help will be an asset in your next job. Serving others is a part of the Wake Forest culture – Pro Humanitate.

What are my learn options?


Employers almost always hire for skills – majors and GPAs play a role – but skills are the basic requirements for landing a position. Here are some suggestions for learning new skills this summer.
