Taking a field trip to meet with emerging leaders is one way experiential learning helps Nicholas School students expand their knowledge beyond the classroom and can positively impact the direction of their careers. When the Ocean Policy Working Group took a trip to The Pew Charitable Trust in Washington, D.C. earlier this year, students learned about career opportunities for graduates of the MEM program.
“It was such a great experience visiting The Pew Charitable Trust. We heard from a lot of people who were recent graduates, and they had a lot of advice about strategies to begin the job search. We also heard from more established professionals who are now managers and who told us, ‘Here’s what I look for in candidates, and here are the right and wrong things to say in an interview.’ These are valuable insights that will help us immensely when we enter the job market.” Cameron Adams, MEM’20
