Gateway Program Overview
Gateway is a four-year career development program designed to provide students with career guidance throughout their time at Lafayette, beginning in their first semester. Enrollment in Gateway means a commitment to self-discovery and to making optimal use of all career resources (including graduate and/or professional school) at Lafayette. Wherever you are in thinking about your future, Gateway counselors, Lafayette faculty, and alumni are here to help.
Here’s how it works, year by year:
- First-year: You’ll start evaluating how your interests, skills, and talents connect to specific career fields and opportunities for graduate study.
- Sophomore year: You’ll begin to develop a network of contacts and get your first major career experience.
- Junior year: You’ll continue to build and refine your network of contacts, expand your career-related skills, and begin to focus on the employers or graduate and professional schools suited to your future plans.
- Senior year: As your Lafayette education nears completion, Gateway’s counselors and resources can help you prepare for interviews, take advantage of your network of contacts and help you land the job you want. Or you can gain assistance applying to the graduate or professional schools of your choice, or pursue other opportunities.
Participating students receive individualized support from their Gateway counselor with whom they work throughout their time at Lafayette. Among the many program benefits, students learn more about themselves and their career or educational interests through personal objectives they develop with their counselor and gain valuable experience and connections that will last a lifetime. Some students enjoy the experience so much they become a Gateway Ambassador and serve as a liason between the Office of Career Services and the Lafayette community.
