Our professional development series concludes with a discussion of career options featuring our recent alum, Reem Hilal. Dr. Hilal earned her Ph.D. in 2013 and is currently Assistant Professor in the Department of Modern and Classical Languages at Allegheny College, where she teaches Arabic.

Her discussion will include an examination of the pros and cons a large institution such as UW-Madison offers its academics as compared to a smaller college like Allegheny.  As an alumna, her direct experience with both environments provides a valuable perspective which will help graduate students gain a better understanding of the many factors to keep in mind as they conduct job searches.
