Purpose and Your Club

You’re in a club for a reason. Maybe you’re interested in the content or activities, maybe you’re deeply aligned with the club’s mission. Maybe you want to make connections with like-minded people, or maybe you just joined to have fun. Whatever the reason, there’s a purpose behind your membership. We can help you explore your purpose, maybe uncovering more connections than you realize!

In your club, you’re learning and utilizing skills that have real-world applicability. We’re here to help you articulate those skills and incorporate your experience into your personal story so you can leverage them in a cover letter, resume, interview, or alumni connection. Contact purposefulwork@bates.edu to learn more about how we can help enhance your experience as well as the experience of your club!
