The Futures Initiative is pleased to invite you to our final Thursday Dialogue of the semester on December 7, “Landing an Industry Job by Leveraging Your Academic Experience.” This last dialogue will be an informal conversation about the transition from academia to industry. The discussion will be led by Futures Initiative Fellow, Doctoral Candidate in Computational Linguistics, and IBM employee Michelle Morales, who will speak about her experiences interviewing for both internship and full-time industry positions. Michelle will highlight key transferable skills that made her transition to industry possible. She will then lead attendees through a collaborative activity to help identify attendees’ key skills as well as highlight potential career opportunities and pathways. This will be an informal brownbag lunch; no RSVP required.
