A Career Services Workshop for English Majors (Both Rose Hill & Lincoln Center Campuses)

A Career Services Workshop for English Majors (Both Rose Hill & Lincoln Center Campuses)

  • Lincoln Center Campus: Room 1114

This workshop aims to help students think ahead, concretely, practically, and creatively, about the kinds of internships and, ultimately, careers they can pursue with an English major. We firmly believe that English majors are excellent thinkers, readers, and writers. These are core strengths and skills that prepare them for a wide range of careers and give them both flexibility and possibility. The challenge may, in fact, be thinking imaginatively enough about all of the options an English major has. 

Interested students can attend only one or both of the following thirty-minute sessions:

  • Level 1 – job- and internship-search access to CareerLink; tips for successful resumes and cover letters
  • Level 2 (for those who have already completed Level 1) – applying for on-campus-recruiting positions; interview preparation

Afterwards, representatives from the Office of Career Services will help attendees improve their resumes. Members of the English Department will give advice on courses and share resources on internships, extra-curricular activities, and publications.
