Dickinson's annual Career Conference brought alumni back to campus this weekend to network and help students chart their paths beyond the limestone walls. The event, which was co-sponsored by the Office of College Advancement and the Career Center, included mock interviews, panel discussions on issues ranging from work-life balance to career services for alumni, and a networking luncheon.
"I really had a good experience because this is the first time I had an interview, and I learned a lot of things," said Prabuddha Tuladhar '19 (computer science, mathematics), one of many students who attended the conference.
But students weren't the only ones who benefited. Though alumni were mostly there to advise, the event also gave them the opportunity to do some important networking of their own.
"I was helped when I was here as a student, and I think it's important to come back as an alum and help today's students," said Jennifer Blanck '92, who is currently launching a new career in the wine industry. "Plus, it's really good to make connections with other alumni. I've already met some alumni here who have connections to the wine business, and I didn't even expect that."
