More than 50 Hollins alumnae will share their tips, tools, and tricks of the trade to help students land that first job during the university’s first annual Career Connection Conference (C3) on Thursday, October 4.
C3 will feature workshops and presentations on a wide range of topics, including internships, how to build an effective resume, interviewing dos and don’ts, translating liberal arts into a career, and workplace etiquette. Inspired by the speed dating concept, three “Speed Connection” sessions will enable students to network with alumnae in a fast-paced, fun, and informal setting. Students can also attend career panels on the arts; media, marketing, and public relations; science; business; law; entrepreneurship; and service.
The conference opens with a keynote address by Meg Jay, Ph.D., author of The Defining Decade: Why Your Twenties Matter – And How to Make the Most of Them Now, and closes with a reception and conversation with artist Beverly Semmes, whose exhibition Starcraft is on display in the Eleanor D. Wilson Museum.
Hollins will operate with a condensed class schedule for the day: classes will end at 12:45 p.m. to allow all interested students to participate in C3.
