As you’ve no doubt heard, when it comes to the job hunt, it’s not what you know, it’s who. Our GC alumni find great jobs, both inside and outside the academy. These are people you should know.
On April 6, you can meet nine of them in small group settings at our Alumni Mentoring Roundtable, where you will have an opportunity to ask them about how they started out in their career, get tips about how you might do the same, and find out what they like and find challenging about their jobs.
Group discussions will be informal and interactive, giving students a chance to ask lots of questions. Each student will be paired with potential mentors for three small, rotating group discussions (four-six students) lasting 20-25 minutes each, giving students the chance to chat with alum from three different fields. The last 30 minutes will be an open networking session.
