Queers with CareersIf you happened to miss the first Queers with Careers panel held last semester at the Alumni Center, never fear. We have all the info right here for you.

Co-sponsored with the Spectrum Center and the Career Center, the event featured panelists Raivynn Smith, ’17, and Donald Beckwith. Raivynn serves as the program specialist for events and partnerships at the Spectrum Center. Beckwith works at the Career Center as a coach coordinating and presenting workshops and programs to students across campus.

At the panel, the two shared important advice with the LGBTQ community about where to look for job opportunities. Here is a list of job resources they provided:
