Networking for Graduate Students: Co-sponsored with NYC Versatile PhD

Date(s) - Tuesday, March 4, 2014
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

CUNY Graduate Center, room 9100 (Skylight Room)

Is networking a challenge for you?  Do you know you need to do it, but dread it?  Join us for a conversation with three professionals who really made the most of their networks to help them make a big transition–from graduate degrees in the humanities to the business world.  They’ll offer advice and suggestions for mobilizing your network to help you move forward in your job search.

Speakers will include:

  • Adam Jackson, Director of Content Partnerships at Seeking Alpha
  • Geoffrey Mac Adam, Marketing & Sales Senior Manager at PwC
  • Eleni Manis, Research Assistant to the Nassau County Comptroller
  • Peter Taback (moderator), Chief Communications Officer, Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health

This event is co-sponsored with NYC VersatilePhD, a group dedicated to providing networking opportunities for anyone who is pursuing or has completed a PhD program or advanced degree in the humanities and social sciences (the groups also welcomes people in the sciences who are exploring non-technical careers).  The NYC Versatile PhD is inspired by Versatile PhD, which helps humanities, social science, and STEM graduate students identify and prepare for possible non-academic careers.

You’ll also have an opportunity to practice networking with your fellow GC students and others from the NYC Versatile PhD group during the event.   More details to follow.
