SVRC Readiness Coach Update

Did you know nearly 80% of our undergraduates are working with one or more of our Readiness Coaches. 

This year our coaches were invaluable in helping to improve resumes, expand networks, and refocus brands. These collaborative efforts translated into internships, study abroad programs, fellowships, full-time employment, and entry into graduate/professionals school.

With several of our graduate-level coaches leaving in May, over the next few weeks we’ll be reaching out to introduce you to your Fall 2018 coach.
