ArtTABLE CAREER DEVELOPMENT ROUND TABLE, 11/2/18
ArtTable, the national leadership organization for professional women in the arts, invited graduate students to attend the annual Career Development Roundtable, their longest standing and most impactful career program for emerging professionals in the visual arts. Students gathered around tables for open and engaged conversations with experts in the visual arts professions, to learn about their diverse career paths and experiences, to gain insights and advice for their own career development, and to network and build future relationships with peers and mentors.
"I learned the importance of how to keep taking your career to the next level; to work on building and maintaining your professional relationships. And, the energy and relationship "fit" is vital. You can be perfect on paper but if you can't be active and engaged in the conversation, people will never discover you."
- Anastasia Gudko, MA, Arts Administration ‘19
"What a wonderful opportunity it was to meet inspired women at all phases in their career. We do not always have the opportunity to experience this level of camaraderie at our place of employment and this was such a wonderful and inspiring example for professionals to unite with a shared vision of support. Even though I am a student, I am reminded that my professional encounters serve as an example to younger and less experienced peers. It was so nice to contribute to the inter-generational quality of this event."
- Genevieve Martin, MA, Arts Administration ‘20

UN/SIOP Information Session
On Monday, September 24, 2018 Nabila Sheikh, MS, Industrial/Organizational Psychology, ’09, Senior Manager of Global Talent Management and Organizational Development at PepsiCo and SIOP United Nations committee member organized a panel to speak about career options and entry points into the United Nations. Panelists included Leila El-Hage, MSc, Organizational and Social Psychology, Human Resources Officer, Assessments Services Team of the Examinations and Tests Section, Office of Human Resources Management at the United Nations, and Julie Weintraub, MS, Industrial/Organizational Psychology, ’04, Human Resources Officer, Examinations and Tests Section, Office of Human Resources Management at the United Nations.
I quite enjoyed learning about the various programs offered by the UN for students and potential graduates. The YPP program in particular caught my interest. Even though I was not an I/O Psychology major, I noticed a lot of overlap with Corporate Communication and felt that there was a lot of variety in career options within the UN. The speakers were a wealth of knowledge and offered great real life advice that can help me find a career within the UN. - Vipan Gill, MA, Corporate Communication, ‘20
Attending the UN/SIOP panel was an insightful experience. I had the opportunity to learn how the UN utilizes research, I/O psychology practices and the impact that I/O psychologists have in this space. It was interesting to hear how the UN uses best practices taken from I/O psychology and the HR field to improve human capital processes globally. I always viewed the UN as a place of politics, strictly handling international affairs, giving little consideration of the functions within the organization. After attending this event, I now have a whole new perspective on how I view the UN, and will certainly consider it for future employment. -Joe Cannova, MS, Industrial/Organizational Psychology, ‘19
