    2017 Scholars Program: Bay Area Careers in Tech and Twin Cities in Communication

    April 14, 2017

    The Career Center’s Scholars Program consists of exploratory industry tours aimed at introducing students to a variety of organizations within a particular field of interest. The program also includes an on-campus symposium, site visits, panel discussions, a networking workshop and reception, and related mandatory curricular components to facilitate students’ learning and career development.  


    The Bay Area Careers in Tech Program exposed 15 sophomores and juniors in all majors to careers in tech. Students traveled to California over spring break to visit Evernote, Google, Facebook, Vevo, and Cloudera, and to connect with alumni working in tech at these and other organizations.

    Alumni Catch-up: Tawa Alabi '16

    March 8, 2017

    Get to know Tawa Alabi '16 and hear about her experience working as a clinical research assistant.

    -How did Carleton prepare you for your current experience?
    I owe everything to my experience at Carleton. Some of my coworkers are Carls and they have already established a reputation here. In addition, my boss is a Carl Parent. On a serious note though, my job requires some statistical knowledge and excel skills which I honed during hours of analysis for my various chemistry lab reports. I also handle blood and marrow samples obtained from our participants and lab skills gained during my research fellowships while at Carleton aided in building my confidence regarding these processes. My comps exercise helped as well because now I can read papers related to cancer without feeling intimated regardless of how nebulous it felt at the beginning. I even use things that I learned when I worked at the printing services and the admissions office at Carleton!

    What are you doing now? Where do you work, live, etc.?
    I'm doing two gap years at the Mayo Clinic doing systems biology (essentially, thinking of cellular processes in terms of networks) in an oncology setting. I live with two alumna from Carleton, and a sassy Brittany spaniel who keeps us on our toes.
