Careers for the Common Good

Are you concerned about your future job prospects? Maybe a little afraid of “selling out”? If you hope not just to do well but also to do good, come by tomorrow’s panel discussion on “Careers for the Common Good” at 6pm in 41 Wyllys, room 112. Four alumni who are working hard for social change and who have built careers around the causes they care about will speak about the rewards and challenges of their professions and share insights from the first years after college, as well as advice for students seeking meaningful, impactful work.  The event will be moderated by Wesleying’s own Lily Herman ’16 and pizza will be served.
