Career Chats Calling

Career Chats Calling

As a 1st or 2nd year student, you’re in the perfect place to start exploring your professional options. Cummings Support Services is available to help you in this process, and this year they’re bringing in backup.

Cummings School alumni have been in your shoes, and they’ve gone on to do some amazing things. This semester, alumni will be joining students via live teleconference for ‘Career Chats’ with small groups of students interested in learning more about their area of veterinary medicine.

Career Chats are your opportunity to make connections with practicing veterinarians, discover new areas of veterinary medicine, and get answers to your questions in a friendly setting.
