Scarlet Talks are a series of short, online career advice videos that showcase RU alumni who have interesting and diverse careers. Have you ever wondered what a typical day is like for someone who works in aerospace engineering? Maybe you’ve been interested in a career in Human Resources, but aren’t sure where to start. Perhaps you are a budding graphic designer looking for advice on how to enhance your skills. These are just a few examples of the many insights you can gain from our talented and knowledgeable alumni on Scarlet Talks. Alumni from a variety of majors and backgrounds are featured. In fact, many of the alumni in these videos are recent graduates who were in your shoes not too long ago! Learn how you can go from campus to career just like them. Here are the top three reasons you should watch Scarlet Talks today: 

1. Short and to the point. Learn key details about careers and the steps you can take to launch yours. No more reading boring, lengthy articles!
