A Wave of Careers

Dear Tulane Community:

What are you going to do when you graduate? I'm betting that's a question everyone reading this has either asked or been asked.

Career Wave, which takes place tomorrow at Dixon Hall, the LBC, McAlister Auditorium, the Freeman School and other spots on the uptown campus, promises to offer some great answers to this question for more than 1,100 undergraduates representing all Tulane schools and classes from freshmen to seniors.

Started in 2013 as an initiative of the Newcomb-Tulane College Dean's Advisory Council with support from Tulane parents Lisa and Cory Rapkin (parents have a real stake in the success of such programs, right?), Career Wave features panels and sessions hosted by more than 50 Tulane alumni, parents and nationally renowned speakers eager to share their own success stories and the opportunities that await Tulane students.

Career Wave speakers will include industry leaders, top executives and young rising stars from every imaginable major working in every imaginable field. The free, daylong conference also includes presentations by recent Tulane graduates and current Tulane students who have landed great internships or first jobs.

Besides incredible networking opportunities and career advice, students can also receive resumé reviews and feedback and browse the vast array of offerings at the Career Resources Showcase in the LBC's Qatar Ballroom.

Career Wave is truly a Tulane community-wide effort – an annual event involving students, parents, alumni, faculty and staff. Think of it as a Crawfest for careers and a golden opportunity to find the answer to the question on the mind of every student and parent: What are you going to do when you graduate?

If you have not yet registered for Career Wave, please contact Byron Kantrow at bkantrow@tulane.edu to be added to the wait list.

Hope to see you there!
