Career Information Night 2010
Twenty-four Psychology alumni came back to campus on Wednesday, March 31, 2010 to offer students insight on how a degree in Psychology can prepare them for a future career. Four of the alumni, the Honorable Jeffrey Ford, Dr. James Leonard, Karen McLaughlin, and Dr. Beth Rom-Rymer participated in a panel discussion from 4-5:00pm in Room 142, Psychology Building. The alumni shared information about their career paths and experiences followed by a question and answer session. Students had the opportunity to meet one-on-one with alumni from 5-6:30pm in the psychology atrium. In addition, representatives from the Leadership Center, Pre-Law Advising, Psi Chi-UPA, and the Career Center were in attendance to address student questions. The department expanded the career information event by offering a Career Center workshop, "Winning Resumes, Cover Letters, and Successful Interviewing" on Thursday, April 1, 2010, 3:00pm in Room 29 in the Psychology Building.
Dr. Elizabeth Pieroth (BS'88) was one of five alumni selected to receive the 2016 LAS Alumni Achievement Award.
The Undergraduate Career Exploration Award was created by the Psychology Alumni Advisory Board. Read about the three recipients in the 2015 Fall issue of Psychology Times: http://www.psychology.illinois.edu/alumni/news/newsletter/
