As a Sophomore, we recommend exploring multiple career paths to gain clarity on your interests and skills and how they relate to professional life. Below are some ideas for progressing along your four-year Career Action Plan. 

  • Schedule an appointment with a Career Coach via Handshake to incorporate your summer activities into your current resume
  • Login to Handshake to update your profile, re-select career interest areas, and view upcoming events and internship opportunities
  • Register to attend the virtual VOCARE Sophomore & Transfer Retreat to reflect on where you have been, who you are, and where you are going within a supportive community of fellow students, staff, faculty, and alumni
  • Attend our industry-specific events to explore job and internship opportunities at companies that recruit at LMU  
  • Apply for a sophomore-specific national or international fellowship that provides academic and professional experience related to your career goals
  • Visit What Can I Do With This Major? and LMU’s Academic Catalog to understand how your choice of major will affect your job search
  • Update your LinkedIn profile with new accomplishments and continue researching LMU alumni career paths and companies of interest
  • Join and explore The Pride, LMU’s platform for connecting with alumni for mentorship and career guidance. This platform is exclusive to the LMU community, and you can search for alumni based on industry, affinity, areas in which you need help, shared involvement in campus organizations, and more
  • Take a class outside of your intended major to further develop your skills and solidify interests
  • View a list of companies where LMU students have interned, and begin networking with fellow students and alumni at organizations of interest
