Want to fight for an issue you care about as a career? Come hear from our advocate panelists who will share how they have drawn upon purposeful collective action to influence government policy, business practices, and cultural norms. Panelists will share their personal experiences in the community organizing and social movement space, and offer tips to students looking to pursue advocacy as an avenue of social change in their careers.
Bring questions about your resumes, cover letters, LinkedIn profiles and anything related to your path to meaningful work. Bring your laptops to work directly on your documents and job/internship searches and connect with other H&S students. A career coach or coaches and industry specialists will be available for questions. (Note that if it's busy, you may need to wait to have your questions answered.) This is for declared bachelor's and master's students in the School of Humanities & Sciences.
Networking is a skill that will help you be more successful as a grad student and throughout your career. But for many, the idea of “networking” seems difficult or unpleasant. In this interactive workshop, you will learn easy steps that you can implement now to build, maintain, and activate your network. You can then practice what you learn at the reception immediately following the workshop. Bring a pen, a open mind, and an appetite.

The Connecting with Leaders program is an opportunity for students to connect with established leaders who will share their knowledge, wisdom, and sense of community. The event will present five distinguished leader fellows from the Distinguished Careers Institute in a panel discussion, followed by an informal Q&A, and a reception for networking opportunities. Among the five highlighted fellows, other selected fellows will be in attendance eager to meet graduate students and build connections.
Engage with your fellow students to re-imagine your job search. Turn your job search from a "should" to a "want" by using the skills you already have to develop a more robust approach.
