Career Day, Etiquette Dinner give students taste of life after College of Medicine
Penn State College of Medicine graduate students and postdoctoral scholars learned about career options in the biomedical sciences and public health through a series of educational and networking events in Hershey.
Career Services and the Office of Graduate Education hosted an etiquette dinner Oct. 18, 2019. The event featured an opportunity for students and postdocs to network with 22 alumni and other professionals while enjoying a three-course meal. Michael True, president of INTRUEITION, served as the facilitator and shared tips and strategies for effectively networking in dining settings.
At the 10th biennial Graduate and Postdoctoral Career Day on Oct. 19, 94 students and postdocs explored a variety of career options. The Career Day co-chairs, PhD candidates Erika Dahl and Angela Snyder, organized the event with guidance from Career Services.
Forty-one panelists shared their career experiences in education, research, policy, communications, business and administration. Penn State alumni comprised nearly half of the panelists and represented the College of Medicine, University Park and Harrisburg.
College of Medicine employee and alumna Alicia Hoke participated as a panelist and discussed her work with Penn State PRO Wellness and the Staffing, Mentorship and Research Training (SMaRT) program.
