Historical Humanities 2014-2015 Career Survey - Takes Just 2 Minutes!

Hello Historical Humanities Students!

Congratulations on a job well done this semester, and I hope exams and papers are wrapping up smoothly for you. Also, congrats to those of you who are graduating this Saturday!!! Once a Badger, always a Badger, so please keep in touch.

If you have a couple minutes, I’d love to hear about your post-graduation and summer plans moving forward.  I’d appreciate it if you took this REALLY QUICK (1-2 minute) survey tracking all the neat things you will be doing after graduation (if you are graduating) and this summer (if you’ll be back on campus for the fall 2015 semester). A great internship? A new job? Volunteering? I’d love to hear all about it.

Thanks so much and have a wonderful summer! Please keep in touch. I am happy to work with all of you on your career plans moving forward –  students and soon-to-be-alums – so please keep me posted and let me know how I can help.

On Wisconsin!
