Jessica Fox-Wilson ’98, Director of Career Development, began her career as a Beloit College student, as a Creative Writing and Education double major. Throughout her post-Beloit career, she cultivated her dual passions of education and creative writing by pursuing a professional career in higher education and an academic and avocational career as a poet. In higher education, she has worked in numerous roles, including residence life, enrollment, academic instruction, and academic program management. As a writer, she earned her MFA in Writing from Hamline University, self-published her poetry manuscript, Blameless Mouth,and participated as a writer and editor in several online writing communities.
Through Beloit College’s Career and Community Engagement Center, Jessica pursues four areas of work: student advising, employer relations, academic career development instruction, and contributing to the strategic goals of the college. As an advisor, she supports students as they identify their interests, practice the liberal arts both inside and outside of the classroom, connect with Beloit College alumni through the Beloit Career Network, and prepare for their post-Beloit paths. She also works with recruiters for nonprofit and for-profit employers, service opportunities, and graduate programs to promote their opportunities to students, faculty, and staff. She partners with faculty and staff to provide workshops on a variety of topics related to career searches, professional identities, and workplace culture.
