News & Announcements
ARTTABLE CAREER DEVELOPMENT ROUNDTABLE, NOVEMBER 15, 2019
On November 15, 2019 Weissman Graduate Career Services sponsored our Arts Administration graduate students to attend ArtTable NY’s Career Development Roundtable. ArtTable, is the national leadership organization for professional women in the arts, and invited graduate students to attend their annual Career Development Roundtable; their longest standing and most impactful career program for emerging professionals in the visual arts seeking career advice and inspiration. Students had the opportunity to choose selected tables for open and engaged conversations with leading professional women and 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.
The Art Table career round table was a wonderful event. The facilitators at both of my tables were inspiring, informative, and spoke about real issues facing leaders in the arts. I plan to follow up with all of the facilitators from today and work my newly expanded network, especially as I look for internship opportunities in the coming semesters.

LINKEDIN – REAL RETURNS ON PROFESSIONAL BRANDING, NOVEMBER 13, 2019
On November 13, Peter Sweeney, Senior Customer Success Manager, at LinkedIn, presented “Real Returns on Professional Branding”. Weissman Graduate Career Services hosted this event for all three Baruch graduate schools, and students asked great questions including "how do recruiters find you; who should you connect with on LinkedIn” and “what should you include in your summary?"
Peter provided very useful and relevant information on how to enhance my personal brand via LinkedIn. He shared examples from his own experience to demonstrate the importance of networking, and tips on how to go about doing so. He also provided great advice on how to stand out as a top candidate from a recruiter and/or employer’s perspective. This, in turn, shed light on specific sections of my LinkedIn profile that I need to work on as well as other activities I can do to increase my visibility to employers. Peter was truly of great help!

I had the opportunity to talk to professionals who helped me understand the realities of their work, the structure of their companies and the critical role of communication in their organizations. It was great information that can be used when looking for an internship or a full time position, and a real learning experience attended by curious students, great facilitators and insightful alumnae.

KIP THERAPY INFO SESSION, OCTOBER 3, 2019
Kip Therapy has at their core philosophy – “the value of the therapeutic relationship in achieving clinical success - is reflected in our mission to describe, measure, and evaluate the therapeutic relationship in our practice, training, and research”. They provide unique opportunities for MHC graduate students to receive intensive clinical experience and supervision as part of an internship or practicum. They also have a clinical fellowship and mental health counseling (MHC-LP) programs to accrue hours for New York State clinical licensure - post graduation.
The KIP event was very informative led by
Negar Morshedian and James Robinson; I learned about the different populations that KIP works with. In addition, I found the information shared about how and when to apply foR he practicum, internships and fellowships helpful. I also loved the fact that KIP offers free continuous training.
