Director, Career Center
Hollins' first-annual C3: Career Connection Conference launched on October 4, 2012. Alumnae shared how they translated their liberal arts education into satisfying careers. They also provided students with tips, tools, and tricks of the trade to land that first job. Students attended panels, workshops, and other presentations, and they had the opportunity to network with alumnae who are well positioned to help them find internships and jobs.
When most students start college, they don't have the rest of their lives planned out. They benefit from help in planning a major, setting up internships that enable them to test out career ideas, writing a résumé that will get noticed (in a good way!), and rehearsing for interviews.
In fact, the earlier you get started thinking about what you can do at college to prepare for life after college, the better. And at Hollins, the place to begin—starting your first year—is the Career Center. Here you'll find a variety of services that will help you make informed career decisions, plus a supportive and challenging environment.
You may think that you don't need to visit the Career Center your first year of college. Think again. During your first year, you should be learning about yourself, exploring your interests and skills, building your résumé through campus involvement, and focusing on getting great grades.
