On the Office of Career Services: I have found Fletcher’s Professional Development Program (PDP) very beneficial. I was a little bit unsure at first whether the skills taught in PDP would be applicable to everyone. However, the workshops in PDP have turned out to be very practical and applicable to many different contexts. I also learned a lot through feedback from my classmates who draw from diverse work and life experiences. Furthermore, students can always ask for help and advice from the Office of Career Services (OCS). Whether it is drafting cover letters, editing CVs, or preparing for Skype interviews, the OCS staff will make sure that students can achieve their personal best. This shows that The Fletcher School is truly committed to the future career goals of every student.

On something that has surprised you: The people here are extraordinary. For me, being among distinguished faculties and friends who come from all kinds of personal and professional backgrounds is not only a privilege, but also an important part of the learning process. My classmates are passionate in what they are doing and willing to share their insights with fellow students. They continuously impress and inspire me with their thoughts, opinions and insightful experiences. My professors are not only experts in their field, but also very welcoming and accessible to their students. Everyone here has a story to tell and we all benefit from learning from each other.
