Panel: “Linking Humanities to Career”

Professionals who studied the Humanities will share information about their career URI Quadchoices, how they prepared for life after college, and how their major in the Humanities has helped them achieve their career goals. They will also offer tips on choosing a career, gaining practical experience, and the rewards and challenges of a career in the Humanities. This is a great interactive opportunity for students to ask any and all questions about career options – and to grab some free food at the same time! Immediately following the panel discussion, plan to stay for refreshments and networking with our alumni. Space is limited!

Date: Tuesday, October 14, 2014                             Time: 4 to 6 PM
