What does the working world have to offer an English major? Does a communications degree equal a job? Will you have to move away from the Coastal Bend to find work in theatre arts?

A new on-campus event Wednesday, Oct. 17, at Texas A&M-Kingsville promises answers to these student questions and peace of mind.

“Career Quest” lets A&M-Kingsville students meet and listen to presentations from successful alumni with degrees in English, Spanish, French, communications and theatre arts. The event takes place from 6-8 p.m. in Fore Hall, located on Engineering Avenue between University Boulevard and Armstrong Street.

A&M-Kingsville alumni with an English, Spanish, French, communications, journalism, radio/TV or theatre arts degree are encouraged to attend the event. For more information, contact event coordinator Michael Verderber at 361-593-2377 or at michael.verderber@yahoo.com.

Some of the alumni scheduled to attend include Joe Henkel, president and CEO of Kleberg Bank; Mark Skurka, first assistant district attorney of Nueces County; and Israel Saenz, reporter for the Corpus Christi Caller-Times.

Speaker sessions take place from 6-7:30 p.m. in Fore Hall classrooms. From 7:30-8 p.m., there will be a wrap-up session with networking opportunities, food and a door prize giveaway in the Blue Room of Fore Hall.

“Career Quest” is sponsored by the departments of language and literature and communications and theatre arts.
