  9th Annual English Career Connections  
(Seminar/Conference)

9th Annual English Career Connections; Registration Required

At the ECC, members of the English Department's Distinguished Alumni Board meet with students and share how their background in English has led to successful careers in law, finance, education, information technology, aeronautics, conservation, non-profit organizations, professional writing, and entrepreneurship.

Students and alumni participate in career search related activities including roundtable discussions, a professional luncheon, and a keynote by Donna Mitchell, Vice President - Wealth Management, UBS financial Services, Inc.

Students also have the opportunity to practice their interviewing skills one-on-one or have his/her resume reviewed by a member of the DAB. Students may also attend information sessions that run concurrent to the interviews and resume reviews. These sessions, led by career specialists, focus on careers in creative writing, technical and professional writing, law, education, language and literature, finding internships, and applying to graduate school.

Participants gain knowledge about preparing for careers following graduation, job search strategies, and strategies that leaders use to succeed. They also attend a professional luncheon with tips on making a good impression in social situations.
