In a note to Suzy Mink '74, Jessica Leigh Sheperd '13 wrote: "Per your advice at C3 I applied and was accepted to intern with both American Rivers and the GLOBE program through The Nature Conservancy. This past January I worked under Ryan Lauer as a development intern. I spent the month writing briefings, researching potential donors for the organization, and organizing a timeline of American Rivers Board of Directors from their foundation to the present in preparation for their 40th Anniversary. After graduation, I will be headed to Choteau, Montana, to work with invasive species as a conservation stewardship intern at the Pine Butte Swamp Preserve."
The first annual Hollins C3: Career Connection Conference launched on October 4, 2012. Alumnae shared how they translated their liberal arts education into powerfully satisfying careers. In addition, they provided tips, tools, and tricks of the trade to land that first job. The conference consisted of panels, workshops, presentations, and networking opportunities.
C3 opened with a keynote speech by Meg Jay, Ph.D., (right), author of The Defining Decade: Why Your Twenties Matter — And How to Make the Most of Them Now, and closed with a dinner reception and a conversation with artist Beverly Semmes, whose exhibition Starcraft is in the Eleanor D. Wilson Museum.
