Recent Grads Talk about their Careers

Each semester the History Department invites some of our recent graduates back to campus to talk about their careers. Our Fall 2016 Gateway Seminar, 27 October, featured Monica Finlay (MA 2011) researcher and analyst for Edelman, the world's largest communication-marketing company; Graham Shular (BAH 2012) occasional teacher in the Thames Valley District School Board; and Robbie Berardi (BAH ‎ 2012) teacher/interpreter specialising in blacksmithing at the Waterloo Region Museum.

All speakers expressed how valuable a History degree is since research and communication skills are easily transferrable to a variety of fulfilling careers.

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
