"The idea that a Ph.D. can prepare you for diverse careers — not just for the professoriate — is now firmly with us.” — Leonard Cassuto, Author

If you are a graduate student in the humanities in the Greater Washington D.C. region, we invite you to join Connected Academics at Georgetown University for our Second Annual Career Expo for Humanities Scholars on Saturday, June 23rd, 2018!

While our Graduate Certificate in the Engaged & Public Humanities will include twenty selected participants, the Career Expo is open and free to all interested graduate students in the humanities.

Schedule

Morning Workshops (10 a.m. - 12 p.m.)

Our morning workshops will provide students with the opportunity to think about how they want to communicate their valuable training as humanists to potential employers. Led by the Connected Academics team, the workshops will include sessions on interviewing, translating a CV into a resume, and honing one's LinkedIn narrative.

The Expo (1:30 - 5:00 p.m.)

The Expo will bring together graduate students in the humanities and potential employers in the Greater Washington D.C. region, from think tanks and academic administration to nonprofit and private industry roles, currently or potentially looking for a writer, editor, translator, corporate trainer, higher education administrator, or researcher with an M.A. or Ph.D. While we prioritize employers who are looking to hire, not every organization at the Expo will be have an immediate job opening. We therefore encourage attendees to come to the Expo in order to discuss their own academic and professional narratives, ask representatives about their own post-academic journeys, and forge connections as they prepare for future hiring cycles.

All are welcome.

Please note that an RSVP is required to attend.
