What does a typical advising call look like?

We’ll start with a friendly intro to hear more about your background, goals, current plans or uncertainties. We’ll then give our perspective on whatever questions/considerations come up, tackle your major questions, and try to figure out what next steps might be best for you.

Don’t worry about having all the answers – our goal is to create a collaborative, curious, and honest space to work through your career decisions and make an action plan.

  • Get connected with relevant organizations, people, and opportunities
  • Receive impartial advice on critical career moves, from strategic pathways to tactical skill enhancements
  • Brainstorm and learn about new career options that you haven’t thought of before
  • Turn your intuitions and uncertainties into a plan with concrete next steps
  • Develop concrete ways to test hypotheses or gather information on questions like “Should I go to grad school?” or “Should I work in X or Y?”
  • Customize helpful frameworks to help you evaluate and choose between two or more opportunities
  • Get connected with relevant organizations, people, and opportunities

Who can we help?

Our advising program is geared toward people who want to have a meaningful impact with their careers. We talk with students who are open to exploring a broad range of career paths and with seasoned professionals seeking impactful projects that could use their expertise.

Some people come into advising sessions with set plans and strong intuitions about their career, while others come in with broad questions and a lot of uncertainty. Our goal is to meet you where you’re at and equip you with whatever is needed to move forward in finding a career that can meaningfully impact the world.
