Event: Publishing Career Symposium on March 21, 2015

The Graduate Publishing Program and the Office of Post Graduate Success are hosting a Career Symposium on March 21, 2015. See below for details:

What is the Publishing Career Symposium? This one-day event will prepare Rosemont graduate and undergraduate students to enter the job force, interview for positions, and put their best foot forward when corresponding with current and potential employers. It will also help attendees craft the perfect LinkedIn profile.

When and where? The event will take place on Saturday, March 21, 2015, from 9am-5pm at Lawrence Hall.

Why should I attend? The Publishing Career Symposium will open with a panel discussion about the current state of employment in the publishing industry, general “dos and don’ts” of interviewing, how and where to search for jobs, how to can get jobs, and how to put your best foot forward. Two other morning sessions will follow the panel: How to Interview and Crafting Resumes. After lunch, we’ll hold two additional sessions: Cover Letters and Other Business Correspondence and the Benefits and Necessities of LinkedIn.

This event is free and lunch will be provided!

Who will attend? You, of course. And top professionals in the field, including Tom Hartmann, Cynthia Laufenberg, Adam Louie, Joe Taylor, and Rosemont College’s very own Anne Willkomm, Meghan Mellinger, and Rudy Wise.

The event is open to graduate students (primarily in the publishing and creative writing programs), undergraduate seniors, and juniors by invitation.

Specifically for the undergraduate attendees: There will be two discussions: 1) To Grad School or Not; and 2) Career Advice for College Majors. Mock interviews will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
