What is an Ivy League School to do when it dares not offer any majors that could be of immediate practical/professional use to anyone?
What Harvard does not have as “concentrations:” advertising, public relations, political science, business, marketing, graphic design, education, so on and so on.
What is an over-achiever to do?
- you sell your life to a lab preferably by the beginning of your freshmen spring semester in the hopes of undertaking ground-breaking thesis research
- you volunteer in a poor, impoverished nation, aiding in the distribution of health supplies
- you study abroad, at one of Harvard’s intensely competitive programs in Germany, or Japan, or elsewhere
- you immediately work for your local elected official’s office (mayor, representative, senator)
- you intern at the United Nations, Supreme Court, the Federal Reserve, the President’s Office of Madagascar
- you volunteer building communities from the ruins, start up your own charity foundation for X natural disaster, and save killer whales (orcas) off the coast of Washington
- you work at The Harvard Crimson during the summer
- then, you work at the New York Times the next summer
- and finally, you work at Random House
iI confused OR pre-business…
- you work at XYZ investment bank, consulting firm or marketing agency
- create your own hot social-networking internet start up
- intern at daddy’s multi-million company
- do e-recruiting, and realize that e-recruiting is the Major Leagues and that while everyone is special, some are more special than others
