Career Conversations

Advice and News From the Cohen Career Center

Hi everyone! Congratulations on finishing the first week! Here at the Cohen Career Center, we've been working on some new initiatives for you. I've been settling into my own spot here and I'm so excited for this semester. I'm here to give you all the information (and of course, all the memes) that you need.


Check out our new "Ask the Executive" section, where you can meet interesting executive partners/alumni and ask them career and industry related questions. As always, take a look at our annual events page and this newsletter to get an idea of what is coming up this semester!
