News & Announcements
LINKEDIN - REAL RETURNS ON PERSONAL BRANDING, MARCH 26, 2019
Baruch College’s Weissman Graduate Career Services hosted "LinkedIn - Real Returns on Personal Branding" featuring Peter Sweeney, Senior Customer Success Manager, LinkedIn. Peter gave the inside scoop about what to include in your profile to get noticed and how to manage LinkedIn for career searches and networking. The students were fully engaged and asked questions throughout the entire workshop. Thank you Peter for returning to Baruch and providing our students with your expertise.
"The event provided actionable takeaways to maximize profile visibility and tips on how to position yourself for the future state of your career. I had the misconception that a LinkedIn profile should be a virtual resume, whereas instead it should tell your career story and supplement your resume."

PITCHING YOURSELF IN WORKPLACE, MARCH 25, 2019
Chief Talent Officer of KKR, Joan Lavin, led a workshop on pitching yourself in the modern world of work. In this interactive workshop, Ms Lavin discussed the current talent assessment landscape and provided students with core concepts for successfully navigating this landscape.

The concepts and skills we discussed and practiced will not only help me feel better prepared and confident as an interviewee, but will also improve my skills and focus in interviewing and coaching others. It was also terrific to have the opportunity to hear valuable insights about current and developing trends in our field from such an accomplished industry leader."

Mental health counseling career & internship fair, march 21, 2019
Baruch College’s Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, Graduate Career Services hosted its fifth annual citywide Mental Health Counseling Career & Internship Fair for graduate students and alumni. A record number of agencies attended (23), and over 12 colleges participated.
As one of our students noted:
"Great set-up! It was easy to navigate the room and sit down to speak one-on-one or two-on-one with recruiters. Agency info was distributed in advance (which gave a snapshot of each organization/agency attending) and helped with prioritizing at a glance which recruiters to target. Nice opportunity to either drop off a resume or get contact info for sending a resume".

METRO CAREER DAY, MARCH 1, 2019
The Metropolitan New York Association for Applied Psychology (METRO) is a not-for-profit professional association, and the oldest and largest for applied psychologists in the U.S. Each year METRO hosts a Career Day for those in the field of Industrial/Organizational Psychology with panels representing internal practitioners and academics, external practitioners, and senior and young professionals.
"METRO Career Day was very informative in that we got to hear from professionals already established in the field, as well as professionals that were just starting. What I got out of career day was that I/O students can distinguish themselves from MBA students by demonstrating their research and analytical skills, which can be our challenge as well, since companies want to know the bottom line - how much it is going to cost. So if we learn analytical tools like R and use our expertise in research, we can demonstrate to a company how they can save or make money by taking into consideration human capital."
-Maria Brandao, MS, Industrial/Organizational Psychology, ‘21
"Career days like this are a great networking opportunity - I got to meet students from other colleges and ask questions to company reps in a less formal setting. I also appreciated the opportunity to learn about the selection process at boutique and large consulting firms, and clarifying consultant-role responsibilities and expectations. My main takeaways were: -using LinkedIn to network through 2nd and 3rd level connections – the value of I/O Psychology degree vs MBA and how to communicate our competitive advantage at interviews – and finding your niche through trying new things, not necessarily study/work related."
-Anastasia Lisina, MS, Industrial/Organizational Psychology, ‘21
MEET THE DEAN, FEBRUARY 26, 2019
Each Semester, Weissman Graduate Career Services hosts an informal intimate gathering for our graduate students with Dean Aldemaro Romero where they share a hot meal and open conversation.
“Thank you so much for inviting me to the meeting with Dean Romero. He has a fascinating background and is a great storyteller. I was surprised and pleased to hear that his father was a renowned classical musician and conductor. I loved hearing his point of view about making a college education available to all. I definitely agree. It was a great group of students as well and it was very interesting hearing everyone's background and aspirations. It was great hearing from you and Leslie as well.”
- Irene Woods, MA, Arts Administration, ‘21
"I really enjoyed learning more about what our Dean has accomplished and will continue to do for the Weissman School. I learned about his professional background, experience and education, and his amazing career. He was very kind and talked about some advantages for Weissman school students. The dialogue was enjoyable, open and very interesting. I also had the opportunity to connect with other graduate students. I think it was an excellent and very productive meeting."
