Over the course of a week in early October, the Office of Vocation & Ministry held workshops to help college students approach looming career choices. While the OVM reflects upon the question "Who will I be?" more than "What will I be?," the latter requires attention in light of the former.
Open to the Hellenic College/Holy Cross community and Boston OCFs, Career Services Week at Hellenic College provides a context for practical questions--"How do I write a resume for a job?"--to engage with the Orthodox Faith--"How do I live Orthodoxy at my job?"
New to this year was a panel of professionals in the non-profit sector. Knowing that many Hellenic College students will either work for, or interact with non-profit organizations, this panel gave students a sense of the career opportunities available to them while serving the neighbor. Representatives from the Home for Little Wanderers, St. Francis House, BNRA consulting, and Hellenic College offered their unique vocational stories, enriching those present immensely.
The session Women & Work was again a highlight of the week, hosted by Hellenic College Dean Lily Macrackis. The panelists--Aimee Ehrs, Dr. Alice McIntyre, Stella Primpas, and Stephanie Skedros--shared their varied reflections as women in the workforce, and dialogued with current students about their experiences.
