Students interested in internship opportunities, resume advice, interview training, and other career advice are encouraged to connect with Lindsay Williamson, our Career Connections adviser for the Historical Humanities Cluster—a group of departments that includes Art History, Classics, History, History of Science, Medicine and Technology, Jewish Studies, and Religious Studies. Her primary role is to help students seeking internships and jobs market themselves to employers  by putting an emphasis on – and effectively translating – the skills they have learned in their liberal arts coursework at UW–Madison. More specifically, Lindsay assists students on professional development skills such as: writing and editing resumes and cover letters; preparing students for interviews via mock interviews; and assisting students in navigating the job search and building a professional network. Lindsay also provides academic advising as needed. For more tips and career advice, visit her blog or subscribe to her twitter feed.
