save the dates: September 29 – 30

See the Hollins alumnae/i network in action during Hollins University’s 11th Annual Career Connection Conference (C3) taking place Thursday and Friday, September 29-30.

This year’s conference theme is The Winding Path. Career is no longer linear but rather an accumulation of skills and life experiences. Learn from alumnae/i conference leaders who will showcase the lifelong power of a liberal arts education, share their insights on life and work, and help students connect to others in their networks. Whether you are a first year or a senior, a double major or undecided, career-ambitious or career-confused, there is a place for you at Hollins C3! 

The C3 curriculum showcases the versatility of the liberal arts, with a cross-sector, interdisciplinary approach to each session topic. The program emphasizes expansive and broad conversations, offering points of access for all students, including those who are still discerning their career or academic goals. Sessions fall into one of four themes: 

  • Insights from the Field: industry-based discussions featuring various roles within a given field 
  • Driven by Mission: Discussions feature conversations around mission, personal values, and purpose 
  • Navigating the Process: Discussions cover the how to’s of career exploration and transition  
  • Interactive Connections: Focused 1:1 exchanges between students and alumnae/i in the form of speed networking
