Career Panel Presentation and Discussion

Concerned about jobs for English majors? The upcoming Career Panel presentation and discussion will provide a way to address these concerns.

Scheduled for Wednesday, November 1, 4:00-5:45pm in the Stern Room, Austin 217, this panel will allay concerns about the value of the major and career directions open to English majors. Job options specific to the skills of English majors are now quite varied, and despite a worrying job market, English majors are increasingly in demand. Four UConn English majors, all fairly recent graduates, will present information about their own career and job search strategies. Given their experiences and professions, they have valuable advice and will answer questions that students anticipating the job market have about the logistics and anxieties of job searches and interviews. The panelists below are testimony to the creative ways in which English majors are shaping careers for themselves, and will offer both practical advice and encouragement.
