I’m sure as English majors we’ve all faced the inevitable confusion, indifference, or even scorn that comes when we cheerfully share our major and chosen academic trajectory.
DePaul ASK mentor and English alumna Christine Baron recently wrote an article discussing what she’s been able to do with her degree in English. Check it out here for some insight!
DePaul’s ASK (alumni Sharing Knowledge) program is a great resource, folks! From their website:
“DePaul Alumni Sharing Knowledge (ASK) is a network of alumni and friends who serve as career mentors, working with students one-on-one, in practice interviews and at job fairs, and speaking at networking events and open houses throughout the university. ASK mentors were once DePaul students, so they know what you are going through. Whether you are exploring majors or career options or searching for a job that aligns with your passion, talking to someone who’s been there can help. There are over 1,000 mentors in ASK at any given time who represent a variety of professional expertise. Have your A-HA moment with ASK!”
