The Power of Profile Building

Students often know their interests, but they are unable to link them together themselves. This can lead to a lot of frustration and uncertainty about their future goals.

Here is an example of how profile building can help students connect their different interests and find a clear path forward:

One of our students was interested in volunteerism, psychology, and dreamt of going to UPenn. We helped her brainstorm a unique research topic combining her interests, which led us to positive psychology, a field that was born at UPenn.

We not only mentored her through her project but also helped her network with professors at UPenn, one of whom wrote her letter of recommendation.

This shaped her career and goals- She went on to study psychology at UPenn and is now pursuing her PhD.

It’s extremely important to start thinking along the lines of how you can add to your profile in meaningful ways at an early stage. Your profile reflects your skills, experience, and interests. It’s a powerful tool that can help you achieve your career goals.
