Beyond the Academy: CU History Community Mentor and Networking Night

This community mentorship and networking night intended for Carleton University undergrad history students to meet with and hear some of the stories of others trained in history, now working as professionals in various fields of work. speakers will each share stories of their career trajectory and how their training in history helped them achieve their goals. This will be followed by a ‘speed dating’ session when students will have an opportunity to speak with these individuals in small groups, ask questions and learn more about the wide range of opportunities that are potentially open to history students. Those who attend will learn new perspectives of what they can do with their history degree and potentially build connections with those out in the world of work ‘beyond the academy’.

This years speakers will include, Jenna Murdock Smith, Anthony Michel, William McRae, and Ashley Clarkson.
