    Qualls on Careers - November 17 - 3:00 Smith Hall Room 348

    Posted: 11/15/14 4:43 PM

    Want to learn more about what leads to a successful career in public service?

    Former Mayor, Vice-Mayor, and Councilwoman Roxanne Qualls will lead a discussion on what students can and should be doing to prepare for a career in the public sector.  Given the highly competitive job market and the large number of students who seek employment after their undergraduate degree in public sector positions, learn more about what you can be doing to have a competitive edge to get positions in city, county, state, and federal government.  What are the pitfalls?  What are the opportunities?  We will discuss the role internships and gaining experience plays as well as the graduate degrees that lead to different opportunities for work in public service.   Qualls' talk will be in Room 348 of Smith Hall on Monday, November 17th from 3:00-4:00 pm.

    This lecture is sponsored by Alpha Theta Lambda, the Pi Sigma Alpha chapter at Xavier University.  Pi Sigma Alpha is the National Political Science Honor Society that is committed to excellence in undergraduate education, scholarship, and career preparation for students who major Political Science. The lecture and discussion is free and open to all students interested in a career in public service.
