Are you curious about grad school? Considering a career change? Recent alumni are invited to join in discussions with other new Hokies through Take the Lead, a career program for College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences students and alumni.

The series of four virtual panels in the spring of 2021 will feature representatives from Capital One to the FBI and everything in between. Each session will explore several career areas and feature alumni already established in their careers, other leaders, and employers. Participants will learn about different industries, job titles, and ways to navigate potential career paths.

The sessions are:

  • February 2: All about Graduate School
  • February 22: Business, Fashion, and Communication
  • March 10: Government, Non-Profit, and Pre-Law Focus
  • April 13: Education and Pre-Health Focus

This opportunity is ideal for alumni still exploring their professional goals. Email Christina Miller at with any questions.
