Ashley Charnley | Tuesday, October 30, 2007

Saint Mary’s will hold a Career Insights Expo next week, alumnae commissioner Christine Darche said Monday at the Board of Governance meeting.

The fair, to be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Nov. 6, will feature 28 alumni representing 21 different majors, she said. The event will be an opportunity for juniors and seniors to meet people in the business world, she said.

“These are our own women doing really powerful things,” student body president Kim Hodges said.

The alumni will hand out business cards and talking about the work they do.
