No matter where you are across the country or in your career path, there are a variety of ways that you can work to ensure that you’re successful in school and beyond. Consider some of the following actions for strengthening your skills and connections:

  • Talk to AccessComputing staff about funding available for tutoring, internships, and conference travel.
  • Build your profile on LinkedIn and connect with professional contacts, including AccessComputing staff.
  • Give back to other students. Engage in conversations over the AccessSTEM@uw.edu mentoring community.
