Alice Kalinowski, History '15

After graduating from GV with a History major and a double minor in Non-Profit Administration and Advertising & Public Relations, I went to grad school at the University of Pittsburgh to get a Masters in Library and Information Science. While at GV I worked as a Research Consultant in the library and loved helping other students with their research. After grad school, I worked in a university library for a few years as a liaison librarian to the business school, which meant I supported the business school faculty, staff, and students on projects ranging from helping undergraduates learn how to do market research to understand consumers, PhD students needing to collect data for their dissertation, and faculty on incorporating business research skills in their classroom. I moved to a similar role at the Stanford Graduate School of Business Library and now manage the public services at the library too. The skills I learned as a history major have been incredibly helpful. Being able to do deep research on a topic, analyze and synthesize your findings, come to a conclusion, and then communicate that all effectively is something I have to do on a weekly basis. It was my love for doing historical research that led me on this path, and even though I don't do too much historical research these days, the research and communication skills you learn are very applicable to other fields.
