Interview: Once your application is received, you will be sign up for an interview in the fall with the MetroLink staff. The purpose of the interview is to discuss your motivations for participating in MetroLink, to find out more about your specific career interests and to ensure that you will represent the College in an appropriate matter.

Selection: The MetroLink Committee wants to give as many students the opportunity to participate in MetroLink as possible. For this reason, the Committee gives preference to students who have not participated in the program in the past (sorry all you past MetroLinkers). The Committee is looking for students who are mature, flexible, and willing to make the most out of the trip. If you are accepted into the program, you will be notified by the end of October.

Once accepted: In the fall, the alumni committees in each city will review your application and begin the process of matching your career interests with a professional. You will be given details about the schedule for a preparation seminar in November. During the seminar, you will learn about ways to maximize your connections, and networking experiences. The prep-seminar will also cover what to pack and answer any other questions you may have.
