Alumnae & Student Career Fair a Success!
Students and Alumnae Connect at the 2013 Career Fair
The 2013 Alumnae & Student Career Networking Fair saw more than 230 participants, including 190 students and forty alumnae. Students were given the chance to learn about a variety of career options and perfect their networking and job hunting skills. Alumnae, in turn, represented their chosen field and demonstrated how the liberal arts education they received at Mount Holyoke has benefited them in their career.
The fair allowed students to participate in mock interviews and resume reviews, learn the basics of financial planning, get an intensive tutorial on how to dress for success, and attend interesting roundtables such as “Cool Jobs You’ve Never Heard Of,” or “What’s Next for FPs.”
Alumnae were also able to network with one another and relish being back on campus. As one alum commented, “I always enjoy being able to meet with students and help guide them at this point in their lives.”
