The Career Center’s seeking a new director. In a three-part series, we’re reporting from the front lines.
Steve Koppi, the first of three applicants for the position of Wesleyan’s Career Center Director, spoke to a small group of inquisitive Wes students and faculty last night in 41 Wyllys. Koppi is the former director of both Mount Holyoke College and Gallaudet University’s Career Centers. If hired, he would replace Michael Sciola, who left Wesleyan in 2012 to become associate vice president for advancement and director of career services at Colgate University.
Koppi spoke eagerly on the benefits of the liberal arts education we’re all so happily receiving. Koppi argued that our generation’s employers are placing more and more emphasis on essential skills that the liberal arts education offers—including writing, reasoning and social/interpersonal skills. It is these skills that Koppi hopes to draw on if he were to be given the opportunity to get us some jobs (and oh, how we need them).
If you are intrigued by the prospect of helping to write, edit, design, and publish a magazine and a multimedia website over the course of 48 hours this coming weekend (November 11 – November 13), then come to our informational meeting tomorrow at 1:00 PM.
Read our earlier post about the project. Follow the event on facebook. If you can’t make the meeting—or if you have any questions, comments, or concerns—contact us via facebook or at 48hourmag at gmail dot com.
We’re seeking writers, photographers, artists, filmmakers, designers (both print and web), copy editors, and anyone else who thinks this is even remotely a good idea. Your efforts will define this project because we can only make it happen with a great team of contributors. You can spend anywhere from one to forty-eight hours with us, assisting with any or every step of the process. Experience is not necessary.
- Date: November 6
- Time: 1:00 PM
- Location: Shapiro Creative Writing Center (Lounge), Allbritton, 3rd floor
