Employers are looking to hire individuals who can make connections with others, work in teams, adapt to new environments, and tackle complex problems. Our students get the opportunity to develop and practice these skills both in and out of the classroom.
Here’s what our recent graduates have to say:
“Everyday I deal with Diversity in the office. I am a Campus Recruiter with a comprehensive Financial Planning Firm, and I take the lessons I've learned from my classes and experiences at UW in my daily work.” –Janna Umetin
- “The minor helped me to be able to work with many different people from different walks of life. Understanding their histories and how their histories intersect with U.S. history has helped me to understand where people come from and what their communities have gone through. This helps me as an adviser to look at things more critically and to approach my advising in that sense.” –Taylor Ahana-Jamile
