The application process has begun for sophomores who want to walk in the shoes of a professional in his/her career field over winter break. Hosts will provide Occidental students with 2-3 days of career exposure to learn what they do, how they do it, and why. Participation in WIMS will provide a behind-the-scenes view of a profession and the opportunity to begin building a network within the field.
Past WIMS participants say that the experience opened their eyes to the nuances of work in many professional environments, from the LA Superior Court, to Huntington Memorial Hospital, to Microsoft. WIMS Away is the perfect way for students to see the direct application of their education in a variety of careers, as well as “try on” a job before choosing a career path. Apply now!
