As alumni know, its about learning how to talk about  the skills you are learning here at SAS, gaining hands-on experience through clubs, research, internships, etc.; and networking with alumni.

"This [informational] interview was helpful to me because Mrs. X had the same major I have now and she is using the skills in a field that is unrelated to her major. It ties back to the concept of transferable skills that we have been discussing all semester [in the Career Explorations in Arts and Sciences Course]. Knowing that she uses anthropological reasoning to understand the people she works with and to write incident reports makes me feel more hopeful for when I finally decide on a field." - Sophomore, Anthropology Major (2018).
