Sophomore Bootcamp

What do Winter Break and your résumé have in common? They are both too long.

Sophomores are invited to spend Winter Break figuring out what careers match their skills, interests, and values—and then to master the skills needed to pursue opportunities in those fields. Explore career options, draft and perfect a résumé and cover letter, search for internships, and practice networking with alumni—all before spring semester starts.

Bonus: Students who complete Sophomore Bootcamp are eligible to attend Industry Skill Workshops. CXD has partnered with world-class organizations to offer skill-based workshops on topics most relevant to employers today. Students can learn about business skills, negotiation, coding, Excel, public speaking, user experience, and more! All workshops are free for Bowdoin students.

Sophomore Bootcamp 2021

Sophomore Bootcamp is going virtual! No matter where you are in the world, you can spend Winter Break gaining all of the skills you need to find and secure a summer internship.
