Asian Studies Careers Night

Are you interested in finding out what careers exist in Asian Studies? Annually, we invite some of our most notable alumni back to UBC. Our Careers Nights are famous for our free and scrumptious catered dinners, invaluable advice from our amazing alumni, and our awesome free Asian Studies swag!

These annual events, held in February or March of each year, are open to students who have declared or are potentially interested in declaring a major in Asian Studies, and alumni who are interested in sharing their personal insight and experiences.

As a student:
* Ask the burning questions about what a degree in Asian Studies has to offer
* Gain extremely helpful networking tips (e.g. How to Use LinkedIn 101)
* Meet your fellow undergraduates and learn about their career and academic plans
* Gain an excellent head-start in planning your next move during and after UBC

As an alumni:
* Share what you did at UBC that helped you succeed
* Give back to your alma mater by providing your insights to the students of what they should be expecting
* Meet and make connections with other alumni, faculty, and students
* Meet potential employees among our diligent and passionate students
