    I have attended Alumni/Student networking events, where I have made effective contacts which have already begun to guide me in interesting directions—not to mention making friends.

    During the Spring of my first year at Wagner, I began having advising sessions with OCS staff, and as a result, have been engaging in comprehensive assignments to make me thoughtful and proactive about building the career path of my choice. I am so grateful to OCS. They have been especially helpful this year as I narrow my focus, prepare for and succeed during interviews, and accept or decline offers.

    Wagner prides itself on teaching students how to practice what they learn. OCS was the backbone that connected my in-class academics to my professional advancement and made Wagner’s promise a reality.

    Most of the networking I have done has been through other students. A fellow Wagner student landed me my internship since she is on the board of the organization who does the program. She has given me several contacts.
