Careers and Internships Advising
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, leveraging your training as an English major, résumés and cover letters, interview practices, networking, alumni mentorship, and more.
