In its 17th year, Beyond the Gates: Preparing for Life and Work after Sewanee will be a virtual, four-day event. It will preserve elements of past events and help juniors and seniors develop career-readiness through panels, practice interviews, 1:1 networking conversations, and hearing the experiences of recent graduates. Because of the expanded and virtual format, there will be three keynote speakers whose talks will be open to the entire Sewanee community. Registration for juniors and seniors will open by December 1; links for the public keynote talks will be provided in January.
