I be on my suit and tie… From Rachel Berman at the Career Center:

What are *you* doing next year? Suit-n-Tie Land or Suit in Thailand? Follow in the footsteps of previous Wesleyan graduates like Laignee Barron ’13, Casey Lasda ’13, Ravy Uong ’13, Ben Soloway ’13, Ashley Swan ’13, Whit Chiles ’13, and dozens more and take the plunge for an adventure over in Asia! Work with educating sex workers at a leading public health organization in Laos. Explore the back roads and floating markets of Thailand at the world’s largest international insurance/consumer finance company. Order the finest bowl of noodles after a day of work teaching a class about American culture in the Vietnamese delta. Stop for a drink in some of the famous tea houses in Korea after teaching math to high schoolers. Explore remote areas of China while working at a boutique travel agency in Beijing. Go island-hopping in the Philippines while working as an anchor for a leading English-language news network.
