As a queer and FGLI student I did not initially have many successful role models in my field of study and especially did not have the opportunity or means to connect with them. Through General Intelligences I was able to combine my passion and initiative and reach out to speakers from some of the webinars and workshops to grow my knowledge and skills. This led to many fruitful conversations which I credit to being able to graduate with a job waiting for me. This is an amazing organization that made me feel like I was heard and seen. After being routinely ignored and failed by conventional systems in place, this was a breath of fresh air.

I plan on participating in the Summer Research Journal Club where I hope to learn more about current literature in education disparities. General Intelligences is a premier resource for students and by students. I did not have many opportunities to speak to professional college counselors or administrators at my school, but was able to network with students and staff in the business world through the webinars and community. Knowing people in your career path is a resource that a lot of people underestimate. General Intelligences gets it right by setting you up for success by letting you speak to the right people.

This is an excellent organization to receive mentorship, guidance and skill development. It is a relaxed environment to ask many questions and receive genuine feedback and support. I read several of the interview and job based articles on the website which provided concise no-nonsense information that helped me be successful in my search. General Intelligences is a one-stop shop for ALL students no matter if they are fresh out of high school or several years removed from the process. Excellent experience getting to have a sense of community with like-minded and driven students that I know will be making moves in their industry!

General Intelligences did a great job with the Mentorship Capstone Program which I participated in for Cohort I. The program consisted of weekly primary literature and global news developments that helped me to develop my research skills, analysis of literature, communication with a diverse team of students from all over the world and encouraged me to develop skills for publication. I credit the General Intelligences team for instilling the confidence to pursue a publication after the program and guidance on how to navigate the complexities of the process. I believe this is the first of many peer-reviewed articles and am excited to contribute more to my field going forward.

I was able to intern for Latham & Watkins LLP in the Mergers and Acquisitions sector. During this experience I was able to develop my due diligence, drafting and communication skills. Latham & Watkins is one of the largest law firms in the world and I never thought. I would have a chance to work at such an esteemed institution until I got involved with General Intelligences. Magda, I cannot thank you and your team enough for all of your help. Whether it was encouraging me to pursue my goals, providing me with a new and improved resume and more I felt supported throughout my entire experience.

Thank you so much to all of the staff at this nonprofit. From the bottom of my heart I am so pleased with all my experiences with your organization. I have attended several of your webinars and have followed your newsletter for some time now. I also recently registered for your intern prep program which I believe will help me further my skills. I am pleased to announce that I have landed a sales internship with Red Bull. I am excited for this position and to continue to learn about new opportunities.

Simply put, I credit my job offer to the opportunities that General Intelligences has provided to me and so many others. I took part in several virtual events that helped me to put my best foot forward in my job search. They also helped me navigate recruitment and got me in contact with recruiters that I would never have imagined would be willing to speak to me. Coming from an urban high-school where most of my peers did not even graduate with their diplomas, for me to be the first in my family to earn my college degree is simply an inspiring experience. I always knew that I wanted to make my family, friends and community proud and now I think I can do so.

This past semester I was selected to work on developing a project through UNAI through their Millenium Fellowship program. This is a prestigious global program for students that has a mere 8% acceptance rate. This is an experience that I cannot even begin to put into words and it was all possible because I learned about the opportunity through General Intelligences. Following their instagram account and subscribing to their monthly newsletter were initially impulse choices. However, I am so happy that I was able to gain this opportunity because of that.
