The Elon University Student Professional Development Center is excited to announce the 2nd year of the bridges program. bridges is a 9-week program that runs from early June through early August for recent graduates interested in launching their careers in Los Angeles.
Participants in bridges also qualify for an academic internship that could lead to full-time employment. There is an on-site career advisor available the entire 9 weeks to assist with the job and internship search, including activities that will help students acclimate to the city and become part of a new community.
Moving to a new city can be intimidating, but thanks to the Elon bridges program and the transition strategies we’ve developed, our graduates are finding their way and settling in Los Angeles.
This past week, 8 recent graduates arrived in Los Angeles to begin their own bridges experience. Check back frequently for updates from our participants about transitioning to city life, networking with the community, starting their careers, and learning to thrive after college, both personally and professionally.
