As seniors return to campus to begin the full-time job recruitment process, the Center for Careers and Life After Brown is seeking a new adviser for the business, finance and consulting fields. Eric Nichols, who formerly held the position, left the University for a new position as director of admission at Saint Anselm College.
The job was “an opportunity he couldn’t refuse,” wrote Andrew Simmons, the center’s director, in an email to The Herald.
Karen Whittet, a former career adviser at Dartmouth, has joined CareerLAB’s staff and will temporarily serve as the coordinator for finance and consulting, Simmons wrote. Whittet also served as a career adviser at the University during the 2009-10 academic year.
The University is currently searching for a permanent replacement, Simmons wrote. “Our search is well underway and we look forward to announcing the new person soon,” he added.
Even without Nichols, “there are several helpful general advisors” to assist seniors, John Sullivan ’13 said.
