Career Exploration

A liberal arts education is an excellent foundation for many careers. As you take classes across disciplines, you will hone critical thinking, communication, and analytical skills that employers value. You will also acquire domain-specific knowledge in multiple fields of study. Use College and University resources to begin exploring careers as early as your first year.

Waldron Student-Alumni Connections Program

The Waldron Student-Alumni Connections Program will help you connect with Weinberg alumni to facilitate career exploration and planning.   We host alumni panels and roundtables on campus each quarter, giving students the opportunity to hear college-to-career stories by industry or major, and to ask questions of our alumni. We offer skills-building workshops, and each reading week we take students on career treks to Chicago–based businesses.
