Alumnae resumes needed!

The Humanistic Studies Department is committed to preparing our current majors for life beyond the Saint Mary's classroom. Our course of study has been designed with this very objective in mind: we envision our coursework in the literature and history of Europe and the Americas as a crucial step in a lifelong learning process. So, too, do we understand the pressures of the 21st-century job market and the importance of translating these valuable HUST experiences and skills to employers, graduate schools, and colleagues.

It is with this in mind that we invite our alumnae to contribute to the Humanistic Studies Resume Archive. This collection will serve as a repository of alumnae resumes, a working pool of sample resumes that current students might reference as they begin the process of composing and creating their own job documents. Our goals are also more immediate: as a part of "HUST Week" activities, the Humanistic Studies Department will be offering a resume writing workshop to current and prospective majors. We feel that your career experiences and life path will be of particular interest to our current graduating class.

Of course, all names, addresses, and personal information will be removed from the documents to maintain anonymity. The archive itself will remain private--only accessible to the faculty and students of Saint Mary's College. The Humanistic Studies faculty and students would be equally interested in learning more about where your HUST degree has taken you. Feel free to offer informal thoughts, reflections, and suggestions to our current majors in our "Share your story" form.

If you would like to contribute, please send your resume or CV to We look forward to hearing from many of you soon.
