NYU Wasserman Global Peer Educator – Spain

¡Hola from Madrid! My name is Dan-Ah Kim and I am a sophomore in the Stern School of Business concentrating in Finance and minoring in Steinhardt’s Global Visual Arts.

Why did you want to study away at your particular site?

Since my Spanish classes back in high school and seeing the photos in my textbooks, I’ve always been interested in Spain. When I got the opportunity to not only visit but also to live and study in Madrid, I was more than excited. I was ready to see and experience the culture, improve my Spanish, and spend the next 4 months of my life as a true Madrileña.

What classes are you taking?

For my language requirement, I am in Spanish Intermediate II, a class that challenges my Spanish and really solidifies my grammar. Spain Today is a discussion-based class in Spanish where we talk about the major events that happen throughout Spain such as the secessionist movement of some of the autonomous regions, the different languages spoken throughout Spain, holidays celebrated, political parties, etc. It really helps me understand what is going on in the country I am living in and keeps me engaged. Masterpieces of the Prado Museum is an art history class that meets at the famous Prado Museum to learn about not only the different artists and artwork, but also the historical and cultural context behind them. Finally, to fulfill my major requirements I am taking Foundations of Financial Markets, the introductory course to Finance majors. This course has definitely been challenging, especially in comparison to a more relaxed environment than in NYC, but I’ve been pushing myself to keep on track.

What has been the most meaningful/impactful experience you’ve had so far?

 Studying abroad in Europe gives you so many opportunities to travel around different countries of Europe. However, because Spain is rather isolated from mainland Europe, I focused on traveling within Spain to be able to really get to know the country. It is a country of 17 autonomous regions and taking the bus or train just one hour outside of Madrid already makes you feel like you’re in a whole new place. Witnessing such differences even within Spain really enriched my learning experience in classes as well as my entire study abroad experience.

What have you learned from your experience that will impact your career endeavors?

During my time abroad, I have learned so much from seeing and experiencing different cultures, languages, and people, in turn learning more about myself in those changes. I have become a more open and receptive person to differences, and I know these experiences will help me relate to and understand people I come encounter with in a working environment.

Myths vs. Facts: Landing a Job in Engineering

MYTH #1:  An Engineer Student’s undergraduate major will determine his/her career options.

Fact: Choosing a major is the first step toward a career in engineering, but it’s not a confining choice. The engineering program allows students to accumulate skills and experiences in mathematics, physics and engineering sciences ensuring they are empowered to enter a number of professional fields and graduate programs. An undergraduate degree also provides engineers with analytical thinking, writing, research, reasoning and presentation skills that are necessary for succeeding in the careers they choose. Additionally, it is important to make use of your school’s resources, be it school clubs, professors, and career services. This will greatly enhance your chances of finding the right career for you. Attending the Maximizing Your Job Search or Internship Search seminar, wouldn’t hurt either.

MYTH #2: An Engineer Student is more marketable if he/she combines many majors and minors.

Fact: Picking several majors and minors could do more harm than good. Too many majors and minors in one program is not only time consuming, but can constrict a student’s flexibility by making them solely geared toward few professions. This can then diminish that candidate’s marketability. There are several electives, research opportunities and internships available for engineering students to take advantage of that can help them diversify their learning and help them realize their interests. Thus, it is important for engineering students to focus on their goals and what kinds of opportunities they’d like to access before embarking on a combined degree program. Additionally, make sure to focus on using Social Media, especially LinkedIn, to setup informational interviews and network for your job search.

MYTH #3: An Engineer Student’s major will serve as their sole focus at school.

Fact: As stated earlier, choosing a major is the first step toward a career in Engineering but it is not a confining choice. During students’ undergraduate years, they can embark on several academic pursuits to diversify their learning. Engineering students can also choose to be a part of various engineering affiliations and school clubs to play out their interests and once again broaden their scope of learning.

MYTH #4: Engineer Students should expect a low paying job after they graduate

Fact: Many people believe that engineering isn’t a lucrative field and that commerce or medicine are fields that get people richer, faster. However, engineers are categorized as professional that are paid well. Check out additional information about this filed here.

 

Tips for Networking During the Summer

Alexa Spieler is a sophomore at New York University, currently majoring in Media, Culture, and Communication and minoring in the Business of Entertainment, Media, and Technology and Hebrew and Judaic Studies. She is also a Wasserman Peer in Career. When she is not in class or at the Washington Square News’ office, she enjoys attending and photographing concerts, binge watching “Parks and Recreation” and “30 Rock” on Netflix, and going to New York Yankees games. After completing her undergraduate career at NYU, she aspires to matriculate to law school, in hopes of becoming an entertainment lawyer in Los Angeles.

Though the summer signifies completing finals and having a break from coursework, do not let the warm weather, BBQs, and beach visitations preclude you from expanding your network. Take advantage of the summer and use it as an opportunity to build upon your network and get ahead of most of your peers. Below are our tips for networking during the summer.

1. Attend Events: The summer may appear to be a period of downtime, similar to Christmas time, but plenty of companies consistently hold networking events throughout the summer. Eventbrite is a great source for locating these networking events, especially by city. Attend these summer networking events, but also be mindful of the fact that the relationship-building aspects of it will come naturally — don’t be too pushy. The easiest way to do this is to simply ask people about themselves — their careers, their goals, their accomplishments. At any and all networking events, it is never to be forgotten that people absolutely, unequivocally love talking about themselves, so be sure to take advantage of this, over the summer and at future networking events.  

2. If You’re Interning, Express Your Interests: Though I wouldn’t recommend this at the beginning of an internship, when you are first adapting to the company’s environment, I have come to realize that the majority of internships are what you make of them. If the company that you are interning has departments other than the one that you are interning in, and you have an interest in that department, speak up to your advisor. More often than not, your advisor at the internship will be open to letting you explore that opportunity or aspect of the company. It may be for a day or so, as in you could potentially work in that department for the day, but no matter what, you will obtain exposure to a department that you would not necessarily be granted if you hadn’t spoken up. Internships are meant to be a learning experience and are a time for you to contribute to the company’s team, but also to narrow down the fields and departments in which you can see yourself potentially working in, full-time. Even if you learn that you do not enjoy that department, you will simultaneously be expanding your network and learning more about your career interests. You never know who else or what else those people know.

3.Reach Out To And Follow-Up With Contacts: It might be summer break, but that doesn’t mean that people in your network are also taking a break. Someone once gave me the advice to reach out to people in your network once every season. Even if it’s something as simple as checking-in on how they are doing, telling them about an article you saw about the business, or a quick email about the weather and then asking how they are, you want to maintain the relationships that you have already established. Reaching out in the simplest way and checking-in — whether it be through email, social media, or a phone call (if you email them asking them for a good time to call), is such an easy way to maintain and build upon your already established networks. Perhaps, you are looking for an internship when you return to New York in the fall, and keeping in touch with your current contacts is an impeccable way to do so. If you are staying in the area of your last internship, perhaps arrange a visit to your old office or arrange a lunch with your former boss — keeping these connections going is such an easy, relaxed thing to do over the summer, when executed properly.

4. Order Business Cards: It may seem like such a simple thing, but if you will be attending networking events, you are going to want to have business cards at your disposable. Whenever you are attending an industry event, a networking event, or a career fair, it is crucial to have your business cards ready-to-hand-out. Even if you do not currently hold a job or an internship, be sure to utilize the business cards in a manner that highlights your collegiate experiences, your major, and your previous experiences, along with providing your contact information — email and phone number, making it increasingly easy to get in touch with you.

5. Make A Goal: In conjunction with those who are interning, you should make at least one goal that you would like to accomplish by the end of your interning experience. What is something that you have always sought to do within your field, but previous internship experiences have not offered that opportunity? Early in the summer, set your one goal, and maybe create a list of multiple goals, as you increasingly immerse yourself in the position and as you better learn the company environment. 

 

Navigating the Job Search through Wasserman

The following post was written by Jeffrey Chan, who through the help of Wasserman Center for Career Development has secured his dream job! He is graduating next month with a Bachelor of Science degree in Hotel and Tourism Management, with a concentration in Marketing and Revenue Management.


Throughout my undergraduate career at NYU, a key part of the job and internship search process was reaching out to the Wasserman Center for career advice and development. Wasserman’s division within the Tisch Center for Hospitality and Tourism was very helpful in searching for internship opportunities, full-time job opportunities, and also offered assistance in career development when building my résumé and preparing for interviews. Upon entering the Hospitality program my freshmen year, I did not know much about the Wasserman Center, but as I progressed through the program, I began to utilize the center and the resources that it had to offer.

In my sophomore year, I took a Professional Seminar class that encouraged students to participate in the Wasserman Center by signing up for workshops and scheduling appointments with counselors to build or critique our resumés. After building a resumé, we were required to prepare an elevator pitch about ourselves and practice answering interview questions to prepare us for the job search. This preparation was very beneficial for students in preparing for the Tisch Center Hospitality Expo, a career fair featuring over 50 companies with internship and job opportunities offered each semester during the fall and spring. During my undergraduate career at NYU, I have secured two internship opportunities through the career fair and Wasserman offered plenty of assistance along the way.

During my junior and senior year, I utilized the on-campus recruitment program through the Wasserman Center and this allowed me to secure interview opportunities with great companies that were searching for students with experience relative to our undergraduate program. Throughout the interview process, I scheduled appointments with career counselors if I needed any advice in approaching an interview or if I needed any practice before an interview. In addition, workshops or coaching sessions were also offered to develop our personal branding skills and tips during salary or position-related negotiations.

Overall, the assistance offered was very helpful and it was great knowing that students had support from the Wasserman Center when searching for job opportunities. The Wasserman Center definitely offers plenty of resources for students to use and I highly recommend any undergraduate student in the program to schedule an appointment with a career counselor soon.

Life After NYU: How to Stand Out Once You Land the Job

Tiffany Rivera, HR Generalist, Institute for International Research (IIR), USAgraduated from CUNY Baruch in 2008 with a Bachelor’s degree in Corporate Communications. With nine years of experience, Tiffany has provided support to employees as an HR Generalist ranging from Employee Relations and Payroll to Training/Development and Recruitment. Her passion is people. Identifying high potential candidates and employees as “diamonds in the rough” and guiding them through their career success.  

 You spend your entire academic career working on activities, joining groups and internships. All while keeping your eye on the prize—landing that great job after (or before) graduation. You interview and network and FINALLY get the offer, but how do you transition into Corporate America after years of structured Academia?
 
Do the job you were hired to do: While you may want to be a director in two years, today, you were hired to do something specific. It’s great to be exposed to other positions and areas of the business, but don’t spend your first few months trying to change a company you don’t understand. You will first have to figure out how it works and perform your job well before you will have context into making recommendations. Be Patient!
Ask questions: It’s a new job! If you don’t understand something you were trained on—ask to clarify. It would be much worse if you get far into completing a task only for it to be completely wrong. You also want to ask about the context of what you’re doing so you can understand the big picture. For example, if you are asked to research a specific topic, understand why you were asked and what your Supervisor is going to do with the information. Not only will this showcase your critical thinking and interest but it will also give you an opportunity to incorporate ideas/findings outside of what was asked of you; allowing you to go above and beyond the initial task at hand.
Be everything that can’t be taught: If you were hired for an entry level job (hey, you have to start somewhere), keep in mind that anyone could be trained to do it. Having the mindset to consistently demonstrate skills that can’t be taught will keep you employed and in mind for internal opportunities—be inspired, motivated and show initiative! If you are bored, ask your manager where you can lend a hand; if you go somewhere on your personal time like an industry conference or weekend meet-up group and it can be translated to your business, let your boss know. It’s all about how you market yourself to your company and how you add value.

Choosing Between Opportunities

Originally posted on Lynxsy.com.

Decisions, decisions. We face mountains of them each and every day.

Domino’s or Pizza Hut? Netflix or Hulu? Jeans or jeggings? Ice cream or cake, or both? All very real and pressing decisions you make in your glamorous day-to-day life.

Choosing between two good things can be tough. Especially when those two good things will affect THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. We’re talking job offers here. You’ll want to take a little more time weighing your options when it comes to an activity that will consume a good chunk of your waking hours.

If you face this big decision, break it down. Look at your choices from these different angles when you have the happy problem of deliberating between two job opportunities.

 The Job

Is this is something you can actually see yourself doing? Is it a challenge? Can you do it in your sleep? Does it make you want to run in the opposite direction? Use your answers as clues to solve your conundrum.

Roominess

As in, is there room for career growth? Or will you be stuck in the same position for years, like a bad yoga class? Ouch.

Trains, Planes & Automobiles

Ponder your commute. Your journey to work costs both time and money. Remember time is money, so your commute costs money and money. Think about it.

Culture

Are you all about that suit and tie or do you like to rock a flannel like nobody’s business? Maybe you’re extremely attracted to ping-pong tables and company-wide snack breaks. As opposed to cubicle-squatting and power lunches, that is. Figure out which gig is gonna float your boat on the river of company culture.


Benefits
Jobs can come with little perks here and there (think free Vitamin Waters and discount movie tickets), or big perks that you don’t get for 30 years (think 401k). What’s important to you right now and later?

Ca$h Money

When you really get down to brass tacks, income matters. Especially if you have racked up a nice amount of debt to earn your degree. Can you survive on the money being offered?

Just Do It

If you’re still feeling ambivalent after you mull things over, it may be time to just jump. Designate each job as heads or tails. Flip a coin. Check your gut reaction after you see the results. Sometimes you need to be pushed into a decision to realize which choice you don’t really want. Either go with the flip, or don’t. That should do it.

Myth vs. Facts: Landing a Job in Public Relations & Corporate Communications

Public relations is a term that means just what it says. As a career professional in this field, your job is to handle all facets of your client in the public arena. You and your agency or corporate communication department colleagues represent the organization internally and externally.  In this blog post we will discuss some truths and some myths about public relations and corporate communication careers.

Myth #1: Strong writing skills and a degree alone will get you the interview.

Fact: In this industry, having a digital footprint or profile does a lot for you. The job market within this industry is fruitful, but it’s still tough to stand out from the crowd. Having an ACTIVE blog, Twitter feed, and/or web page that discusses industry-related events help position you as a leader. The employer will see you already are doing what they will pay you to do. Apply knowledge learned from your classes to examine current public relations issues. Last year alone, such high-profile organizations like the NFL, NBA, Target, Macy’s, and more were the objects of bad PR. Use this as an opportunity to present your ideas in an “If I were in charge of PR, I would…” fashion.

Myth #2Public relations is solely about being a publicist.

Fact: Public relations has evolved far beyond managing the perception and image of celebrities and companies. It is at the point where most large organizations have a corporate communication department within their executive suites. Large or small, in this day of the 24/7 information age every company is involved in PR in some way. The power of social media has placed even more emphasis on this staff function. Even governments look to public relations and corporate communication professionals to handle their branding and positioning.  The current Iran-Israel nuclear issue is a prime example of high-level public relations issue.

Myth #3: PR is all about the “spin.”

Fact: As Bob Noltenmeier, Clinical Assistant Professor at the NYU School of Professional Studies Public Relations and Corporate Communication graduate program, said, “True PR can be extremely blatant, obvious and in your face, or really subtle to the point where you don’t know it’s happening. That is where social science and psychology comes in—and that’s the kind of public relations we prefer and that really works. Every day in PR, you are either reinforcing positive attitudes or changing negative ones.”

Many career opportunities exist within the corporate communications and public relations field; in fact, it’s among the fastest growing professions. If you enter the field with the right skills—writing, presenting, understanding business and having a strong interest in news and public affairs–you will work for an agency, corporation, government entity, non-profit or your own consultancy.

Myths vs. Facts: The Truth About Landing a Job in Media

 

Myth #1: Careers in media often involve partying and meeting celebrities.

Fact: While working in media may give you exposure to exciting opportunities to meet a variety of people in the entertainment industry, when working for a media company, you are expected to remain professional at all times. Additionally, extensive hard work goes into events, and festivals including plenty of strategy meetings to ensure everything goes according to plan. Make sure to set your expectations accordingly!

Myth #2: You have to spend a long time in unpaid internships or in assistant roles.

Fact: These days, forward thinking companies recognize the value of young talent with fresh perspectives. Basic administrative tasks are part of any role, particularly those at entry level. However, it is worth doing research through sites like Glassdoor.com and using your network to learn about these innovative companies that are willing to include interns and entry-level employees in career development activities. Voice your interest in participating in creative initiatives and be ready to jump at any opportunity to partake in strategic meetings.

Myth #3: The only way to a media position is through connections.

Fact: It is true that networking is extremely important in searching for positions in the media industry, and it is common for students to find positions through alumni, professors, friends, and previous colleagues. However in the media industry, creativity and innovation trickle down through the structure all the way to the hiring process. Although connections may serve you well, creative and innovative companies such as the ones that exist in the media industry use social media to find new and interesting talent. Curate your social networking platforms such as Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr and Linkedin to help build your online presence.  Additionally, build your brand by developing an online resume to advertise your skills with links to your various online portfolios to provide readily accessible work samples. Social media is becoming more and more popular in the media industry to discover new talent, so ensure you are maintaining your networks accordingly!

Myth #4: Careers in Media are just about TV and Film.

Fact: There are a number of valuable career opportunities in media in additional areas such as print, journalism, magazines and publishing. Although you may not be as familiar with these industries, go outside your comfort zone and expand your job search to encompass these companies. Maximize your potential by exploring companies outside of those you might typically consider as ‘in your field’.

  • Students must secure the internship prior to the application deadline

3. Is this internship only for students interning in not-for-profit organizations?

No. The WCIG is awarded to students interning at organizations that do not traditionally pay their interns which include the arts, fashion, media and journalism, etc.

4. When are the deadlines?

In general, the deadlines for the WCIG (NYC and Global) are as follows for each semester:

Semester

NYC

Global

Fall

Late September Early November

Spring

6. Where and how can I apply?

To apply:

  • Log into NYU CareerNet

Myths vs. Facts: Landing a Job in Engineering

 

MYTH #1: Engineering students have no social lives and therefore cannot develop or use social skills during college.

Fact: Engineers today need to think of themselves as leaders, not anti-social people. A college graduate with an engineering degree is approximately six times more likely than a graduate with a business degree to become a CEO of an S&P 500 corporation – and not just among traditional engineering companies. ExxonMobil may be headed by an engineer (Rex Tillerson, BSCE), as is Texas Instruments (Richard Templeton, BSEE), and Raytheon (William Swansen, BSIE), but engineers are also running financial institutions like Wells Fargo (Richard Kavacevich, BSIE) and insurance giants like Progressive (Glenn Renwick, BSME).

MYTH #2: Industrial Engineering is not of use in today’s economy.

Fact: Industrial engineers find ways to eliminate wastefulness in production processes. They devise efficient ways to use workers, machines, materials, information, and energy to make a product or provide a service. Depending on their tasks, industrial engineers work both in offices and in the settings they are trying to improve. For example, when observing problems, they may watch workers assembling parts in a factory or staff carrying out their tasks in a hospital. When solving problems, they may be in an office at a computer looking at data that they or others have collected. Industrial engineers figure out ways to manufacture parts and products, or to deliver services, with maximum efficiency, a much needed skill and career. The key for engineering students looking to get into Industrial Engineering, as with any field, is to make themselves marketable. The first step is to have your resume and cover letter in proper order and the next few steps involve taking advantage of your school resources and networking as much as possible.

MYTH #3: Engineers aren’t creative individuals.

Fact: Engineers are creative problem solvers and their line of work requires minds that are inclined toward both creative and logical thought. It’s a balancing act they’ve mastered that comes in handy during the design and brainstorming phase of a project. When served with a task or problem, engineers understand the logical principles and applications that frame reality all the while deploying their creative juices to come up with groundbreaking plans. In the words of renowned dancer and choreographer, Twyla Tharp, “before you can think out of the box, you have to start with a box.” Engineers rely on their understanding of the boundaries surrounding projects before their creative minds figure out a way to break those boundaries and bring about innovative solutions. If you are interested in seeing how national and global fellowships can help finance your creative  projects, click here.

MYTH #4: Engineers have to love math to be good at it.

Fact: Engineers need to be good at math but that doesn’t necessarily mean they love the subject. The subject is merely a valuable tool on their journey toward an answer to a question. Many engineers do not enjoy math but they stick with it in order to reach what they love most: a solution. This relentless trait shows a sense of resolve, the ability to take on difficult and unpleasant responsibilities without quitting. It’s a trait coveted by employers worldwide. If you would like to take advantage of upcoming networking opportunities to meet the very employers looking to recruit students with this trait, make sure to do so through On Campus Recruitment.
