The History Department held its third annual History Careers Day on Friday, February 20.
Our keynote presenter this year was Angela Scalpello. Angela, who has worked for many years as a senior human resources executive at major firms in New York City and San Francisco, shared with majors and non-majors her considerable interviewing and hiring experience as someone who understands the skills historians bring to the job market.
For our 11am panel, EIU alumni and current students discussed how they are using their history degrees.
During our third panel EIU alumni and faculty shared their experiences teaching in a variety of settings—public school, private school, and community college.
At our final panel of the day, some faculty and current graduate students discussed the joys (and challenges) of MA and PhD programs.
Thank you to all of our panelists who helped us make this year’s History Careers Day such a success!
