Using This Website: When asked the question, “what do you wish you had learned in graduate school,” alumni often report that their programs lacked a venue beyond the classroom to discuss employment horizons and find professionalization opportunities. This website and blog is a great model for departments who want to build a one-stop, user-friendly resource to fulfill these needs.

Purpose of This Website: Students can go to the site to find internship and funding opportunities, get the latest news about career diversity, and connect with peers who are already employing their history expertise outside of academia.

Skills This Website Addresses: Communication, Collaboration, Digital Literacy
