Mellon-Morgridge Fellow supporting the “Health and Inequality” Constellation

When it comes to access career guidance, training, and networking opportunities, sometimes you want to talk to somebody who understands in-depth the skills you have developed and the challenges you face specifically as an English major. Our career and internship coordinator, Caroline (she/her) is a PhD student in the English Department. While at UW-Madison, she has served as an academic advisor with the SOAR program, taught English 100, and helped coordinate the “Health and Inequality” Constellation housed in the College of Letters and Sciences. In prior years, Caroline worked in both a Career Center and a Writing Center at Clemson University before teaching high school science via Teach for America. As an enthusiastic hobbyist, she enjoys tennis, mediocre cake decorating, and daydreaming about new and exciting life pathways for humanities students in her spare time. She is available for conversations about career possibilities, finding jobs and internships, résumés and cover letters, interview skills, networking, alumni mentorship, and more.
