How does one integrate faith and a professional career?  In particular, how does your Catholic Studies and  Political Science find you a position in the “Real World”?  What are the obstacles and joys of professional life? 

The "A Conversation with..." series continues as Melissa Hackenmueller discusses her work in the field of politics.  She will give a brief presentation, followed by a Q&A session.

The "A Conversation with..." series is a new program being run by the Professional Leadership Formation program, a part of the Joseph and Edith Habiger Institute for Catholic Leadership.  The Professional Leadership Formation program believes that a critical aspect of the work of preparing students for professional life is to bring them into contact with faithful Catholics in various fields.
