ANNUAL INDUSTRIAL/ORGANIZATIONAL PSYCHOLOGY CAREER & INTERNSHIP FAIR

The I/O Psychology Career & Internship Fair held on November 2, 2017 was a great success, bringing over 100 graduate students from more than 8 colleges and 15 companies ready to recruit. There was a good mix of returning and new companies, including Beacon Hill Staffing Group, Dylan’s Candy Bar, Girlie Action Media, Lieberman, Inc., MDRC, Metro North Railroad, MTA NYC Transit, New York City Department of Citywide Administrative Services, New York State Department of Civil Service, PepsiCo, Retensa, LLC, United Nations and YSC. As one recruiter commented,“Students came with their résumés, knew about the positions, were dressed appropriately, and had their 30-second pitch ready!”


ARTTABLE: CAREER ROUNDTABLE

On November 17, 2017, ArtTable, the national leadership organization for professional women in the arts, invited students to attend their annual “Career Roundtable”, for rising professionals. This program provided career development opportunities for students to meet with leading professional women working in the visual arts; to learn about their backgrounds and experiences, to gain career insights and advice, to network and build relationships with peers and mentors, and to learn about taking the next steps towards a career in the arts.


THE MET: CAREER INSIGHTS

On November 17, 2017, The Met sponsored “Career Insights” where students were able to speak with staff from many different backgrounds about their jobs, and learned about how to apply their skills toward an internship or a museum career. Students met with administrators, curators, conservators, educators, designers, photographers, scientists, writers and more.


ARTS ADMINISTRATION 3 DAY CULTURAL COMPETENCY SYMPOSIUM

Arts Administration graduate students organized a three-day symposium dedicated to cultural competency from November 13 to 16. The symposium was the innovation of Iyvon Edebiri, the event producer, along with fellow graduate students and co-producers, Amanda Hopper and Nicole Asher- Studen. The goal of the symposium was to ensure that, as the next generation of Arts Administrators, graduate program graduates feel confident creating, developing and executing impactful programming and leadership decisions for a diverse and inclusive audience.

Speakers included Andrew Shade, founder of BroadwayBlack.com; Diep Tran, editor of American Theatre Magazine; Jane Hsu, Head of Interpretation and Engagement at the Rubin Museum; and Kaisha Johnson, founder of Women of Color in the Arts. The symposium was open to the public and sponsored in part by the Dean’s Office at the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, in partnership with Baruch’s Office of Diversity, Compliance, and Equity Initiatives.


BARUCH'S PRSSA CHAPTER HOSTS PANEL

The Public Relations Society of America (PRSSA) Baruch Chapter sponsored a panel – Building Your Own Business in PR, Communications, and Marketing on November 14, 2017.

Presentations included the panelists’ journey in becoming entrepreneurs with their own agencies, as well as providing career advice to students.


JETBLUE INFORMATION SESSION AT WEISSMAN

JetBlue conducted an information session regarding the company culture and upcoming opportunities on October 11, 2017. Representatives, Marcia Correa- Reyes, Coordinator–Talent Management, and Razia Mohamed (MS’14), Talent Acquisition Coordinator, spoke about the company’s history, their emphasis on community service, and internship program offerings.

The information session was engaging and informative. Hearing about the incredible work JetBlue does in the aviation industry, and how giving back to all people and communities as an integral part of their company culture - made me want to apply right away.

FALL 2017 CIA SIMULATON EVENT

On September 28, 2017, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) hosted a simulation event for students. Participants played the role of a CIA intelligence analyst assigned to a team. During the simulation, CIA officers walked students through the thought process and the role of an analyst as they investigated a potential emerging problem demanding critical thinking skills and analysis.

I thought the CIA simulation was really interesting and fun. Like most people, I had a warped view of what CIA analysts did. Attending the simulation gave me a better idea about the role of an analyst, as well as the skill set I would need to build to work as one.

It was incredibly engaging to walk in and capture a glimpse of what it means to be a global scholar in a collaborative work environment.

DR. SY ISLAM AND DR. MIKE CHETTA VISIT WEISSMAN

The Association for Talent Development (ATD) NYC and the Baruch College I/O Psychology Student Club hosted Dr. Sy Islam and Dr. Mike Chetta of Talent Metrics on November 16, 2017. Dr. Islam and Dr. Chetta led a workshop on data analytics and cutting edge talent management techniques. The event was moderated by Margaret Clarksom, President of the Association for Talent Development.

I really enjoyed ‘An Introduction to People Analytics’ presented by Dr. Sy Islam and Dr. Mike Chetta of Talent Metrics. They presented a challenging and important topic in I/O Psychology in a fun, engaging way that was still educational for all who attended. The format of the program allowed for a lot of interactions between attendees, which was great!
