A plethora of freshmen enter college every year. Several years later, many of them graduate with degrees in the Humanities. Then what? Graduates are finding it increasingly difficult to find job placement in their chosen fields.
Recently, Kelley Henderson, Career Consultant at UT Dallas, became aware that a segment of the student population was not being served in campus career fairs. There was a strong focus toward servicing the STEM Center, but the Arts and Humanities were being overlooked. This need provided the ideal fit for the combination of Brown Books and UT Dallas.
Brown Books Publishing Group and UT Dallas recently announced a partnership that will benefit highly-qualified students in the Arts and Humanities. Students will prepare for internships through a program of workshops in the Chicago Manual of Style, InDesign, resume and cover letter writing, and interviewing. This visit to Brown Books publishing offices on Sept. 26 marks the first step in the process.
