Humanities Round Tables: “From Poetry to the Private Sector – Humanities Alumni in Data Careers”
What has the study of literature and the arts to do with the business of numbers? How can a degree in the humanities prepare you for careers in data analysis? On October 28, as part of the “Humanities Round Table Series” in partnership with the Cawley Career Education Center, Georgetown Humanities organized the virtual panel “From Poetry to the Private Sector – Humanities Alumni in Data Careers.”
Four Georgetown alumnae–Kate Bohinc (C ‘07; Tender Buttons), Sarah Dorman (C ‘05; Interworks), Tiffany Hosey (C ‘92; BuilDATAnalytics), and Anne Popolizio (C ‘05; Social Squib)–shared with us how they translated their humanities background and passions into rewarding careers as technology entrepreneurs, analytics consultants, marketing experts, and data scientists. They highlighted highly transferable skills that they drew from the humanities to shift their professional focus and have an edge in today’s fluid workplace.
