What is Asian Studies Careers Night?
Navigating life after graduation can be hard, so each year we bring in alumni with diverse experiences – at home and in Asia – to inform and inspire current students. The special feature of our Careers Nights revolve around robin networking sessions between current and prospective Asian Studies students and Asian Studies Alumni from various job fields. In our in-person events, we also had raffle prizes, and delicious free dinners! Careers Night is the perfect opportunity to make connections, meet fellow Asian Studies students, and feel more confident in taking the next steps on your career path.
