In late March, CareerConnect hosted Marguerite Gong Hancock, founder of the Computer History Museum’s Exponential Center and a graduate from both Stanford and Harvard, for a workshop titled “Career Advice in Humanities Fields.” She spoke about her professional experience and potential careers in various fields within the humanities. Gong talked about her career trajectory, what she has accomplished and why she chose this career path. She also offered advice to students who are interested in pursuing a degree in the humanities, and how to plan and prepare for a career in these fields.
The workshop was sponsored and promoted by Harker CareerConnect, a student-led networking, career preparatory and professionalism program. “I had an amazing time at the workshop,” said Arjun Virmani, grade 9. “The workshop, overall, made me more interested in the field of humanities.”
Alexander Young, grade 11, noted, “I enjoyed the event and gained a new perspective about how humanities can be useful in all fields.”
