I is for Illinois, for the Fighting Illini and for the individual paths that we choose to pursue, though hopefully inspired or informed by the knowledge of those who came before. This is why the University of Illinois Career Showcase exists, and alumnus and 50k President Jim Misener will be sharing his specific experience with the English/Creative Writing Department in September 2018. Every fall, the University invites alumni to campus for a panel discussion in which they discuss their career paths and offer advice while exploring new ways of bringing students and alumni together through ongoing partnership and mentorship. A handful of graduates at various stages of their careers and from a range of industries will answer questions; and in addition to dropping some knowledge, will most likely pick some up as well.
