In case you missed it: 3rd Annual IMA Marketing Summit

Did you miss the 3rd Annual IMA Marketing Summit? M.S. in Integrated Marketing candidate Valentina Martinez has you covered!

Every year during the spring semester the IMA (Integrated Marketing Association) organizes a Marketing Summit filled with workshops, panels, and networking opportunities. This year it was all about disrupting the industry by being innovative, creative, passionate and savvy when it comes to technology and the digital world.

In case you missed it, you may read the highlights and employer advice of each session below.

IMA1

“Disruptive Thinking”

Luke Williams – NYU Marketing Professor and Founder of the W.R. Berkley Innovation Lab

The morning started in a highly energized conversation about disruptive thinking with NYU Stern Professor, Luke Williams. He taught us that money is not the only form of currency. Ideas are currency, too. The challenge is to have more innovative capital to spend.

Innovation can be compared to cooking as the willingness to look at the ingredients available (data, resources, technology, etc.) and arrange or rearrange them in a way that makes them more valuable to come up with new “recipes” that are your ideas. Luke used this example to explain how most of us learn to cook by following old recipes instead of using new ingredients, so the opportunity goes wasted.

In just one sentence, disruptive thinking is about paying attention to the things that are ignored and unbroken, and try to change them for the best.

IMA2

“Innovation & Entrepreneurship Panel”

Yurik Boykir, CEO at Gravity Media
LaToya Smith, Founder/Chief Content Strategist at Brass City Media
Chuck Welch, Founder & Chief Strategy Officer at Rupture Studio
David Vinjamuri, NYU Marketing Professor
Patrick Raymond (Moderator), General Manager at TraceMedia, NYU Marketing Professor

This amazing line up of speakers taught us about passion and doing the things you love. Panelists shared their advice on building a strong career and developing your skills. They suggested on picking a skill you like that you are good at and becoming a master at it. That will give you advantage. They also talked about always thinking about what your next move will be. When looking for a job, the trick is not to get discouraged when getting a no for an answer. You must be willing to look the way around.

IMA3

“Social Media Marketing Panel”

Glenn Meyer, Senior Analyst at Sapient
Bant Breen, Founder & CEO at Qnary
Kerry O’Grady, Assistant Clinical Professor at NYU PRCC
Garvin Reid (Moderator), Career Coach at the NYU SPS Wasserman Center

This session started with an overview of the social media role in an organization. With the use of it you get instant feedback, which is highly valuable for testing or launching products. About the future of social media, they believe it will be vastly video-based, with a big dominance of apps such as Snapchat.

The panelists shared their tips for students looking for jobs in the social media world. First, you must be a social media expert, stay up to date with trends, and educate yourself. Second, it is crucial that you know how to write properly. Third, pay attention to what you post in your social media platforms. Recruiters not only look at your pictures but also your tone of voice, typos, and how you relate with other people. And fourth but not least, be flexible and adaptable, learn fast and say yes to opportunities.

IMA4

“The Future of the Web”

David Shing, Digital Prophet at AOL

The afternoon got boosted with the “Digital Prophet”, David Shingy, who started out by telling us to always be reactive, relevant, and remarkable.

Centered on the fact that 75% of purchase decisions are based on emotions, Shingy made us reflect how as a brand, we must think of our audiences. Everyone is distracted in America. In fact, he believes everyone suffers from a new form of ADHD in the present, or what he calls “Always Distracted Hyper Doer”. Therefor, we must know how to be both content creators and curators in order to produce an authentic dialogue at the right time and place, in the right way and for the right audience.

“Design in Marketing 101”

To close the sessions of the day, we immersed ourselves in a graphic design workshop for marketing and user experience, which was valuable for branding purposes.

“Networking Event”

After a productive and informative day, students got an opportunity to network among their peers and employers.

The summit inspired us to work hard on our goals as marketers, become more proactive in our job search, see things in a different perspective, overcome challenges, and trust in ourselves.

We cannot wait to see what the next summit will teach us about! See you next year…

4 Truths About Taking a Gap Year

Compiled by Project Horseshoe Farm Fellows ‘15-’16 and written by Melissa Luong

Melissa Luong recently graduated from Binghamton University. She is now pursuing a one-year fellowship at Project Horseshoe Farm in Greensboro, Alabama before entering graduate school next fall. 

Fellows at Project Horseshoe Farm pursue a one or two year gap-year fellowship serving vulnerable community members by focusing on education, leadership, and community. As we came together and brainstormed about our experiences, we reflected on the last five months of our gap year. We came up with 4 important things that everyone should consider when pursuing a gap year between college graduation and graduate studies. 

1. You don’t have to go abroad.

This is the ever-popular choice for a gap year, but it isn’t your only option. Traveling and/or doing a year of service is just as accessible in the United States. Regionally, the U.S. has many differences and unique cultures. Only two of the nine fellows are originally from the South. The rest of us are from California, Michigan, New York, and Pennsylvania. We’ve been learning so much about the culture, traditions, and food that the South values. None of the fellows have lived in a rural area before this gap year and we’re learning that cows escape from their pastures more often than you think.

2.  Explore every option.

Don’t keep yourself in a narrow frame of mind. Last year, a current fellow (then a graduating senior) only went to our information session because she was curious. What we imagined for ourselves after graduation while we were in college isn’t exactly what all of us are doing. Many of us never intended to move to a small town in the Deep South. If we were to tell the freshmen versions of ourselves that we’d be moving to a rural community in Alabama, most of us would be pretty shocked. However, we are enjoying our time in a place which is different from what we’ve experienced before. Take a chance on an unconventional opportunity.

3. College doesn’t teach you everything.

Think of your gap year as a transitional year. We are using our gap year to figure out if the professional ambitions we developed in college are truly what we want to pursue. It seems like a better option than pursuing graduate training and then finding out that what we thought we wanted isn’t really what we want anymore.

4. Be open to new experiences and people. 

Consider what you want from your gap-year. You’ve spent a good few years earning your degree in an environment in which you’ve grown accustomed to certain things. Learn to challenge yourself so that you can be receptive and understanding to experiences and people different from you. Our fellows are from all over the United States and are alumni of Ivy League schools, small liberal-art colleges, and state schools. Even more so, we are meeting community members who, at first glance, are so unlike us that it seems a friendship would be difficult. We find that this isn’t the case at all. We’re pushing ourselves to understand and empathize with everyone we meet and we’ve been welcomed very warmly.

Hopefully, these truths that we’ve imparted will help you formulate an idea of if and what kind of gap year is best for you.  Best of luck, class of 2016!

A Wasserman Career Ambassador’s Top Tips for Networking at Exploring a Legal Career

Isaro Carter is a junior studying Applied Psychology in Steinhardt—but she wants to be an entertainment lawyer! She has a passion for rap music, cartoons, and really good food. When she isn’t working with the Wasserman Career Ambassadors, she can be found at your nearest gym or in Bobst studying. This semester Isaro is on the Freshman & Sophomore Engagement team with her fellow Wasserman Career Ambassadors, as she hopes to help more underclassman get better acquainted with Wasserman.

On Tuesday, October 27th from 5:30-7pm, the Wasserman Center is hosting Exploring a Legal Career in collaboration with the Preprofessional Office at CAS. There will be five attorneys present to speak with students in a roundtable discussion about the law, law school, practicing law, and careers in law.  Now that you know what the event will entail, do you know how to get the most out of it? Here are some tips to help you do just that!

  1. Be professional – If you do nothing else, make sure you maintain a professional demeanor—you want to make a good impression!
  2. Do your research Knowing as much as you can about the kind of law area you are interested in, the law school you want to go to, etc. will help you to formulate better questions, and you’ll stand out that much more.
  3. Make sure your elevator pitch* is tight – For more reasons than one, your elevator pitch will come in handy; for this particular event, it’ll make you look very professional and seem like a no-nonsense kind of student.
  4. If someone really speaks to you, ask for/take their business card – This one is a no-brainer. This will allow you to keep in contact with them.
  5. Send a follow-up email – For this one, you have to gauge the appropriateness of sending an email—if you find that you made a genuine connection and would like to learn more by speaking further with this individual, reach out with a follow up email because it’s a simple gesture that can go a long way.

*Bonus: The Elevator Pitch – It isn’t only used for meeting people in elevators! When networking, you really only have a couple of seconds to hook people and give them a general sense of who you are and to make a lasting impression, so having a quick, concise pitch ready to go will always come in handy.  When constructing your pitch be sure that it answers these questions:

  • Who are you?
  • Where do you go to school?
  • What do you do?
  • What are you interested in doing?
  • What can you offer?

Having all of these elements can give people a quick snapshot of who you are and what they can help you with (if they are so inclined) or to whom they can refer you. Getting this down will make you look like a power player, even if you’re only an undergrad—remember, you always want to make a good impression!

Now that you’ve read all of these tips, you should be in good shape to maximize your opportunities at the Exploring a Legal Career event.  You won’t want to miss it!

Exploring a Legal Career will take place on Tuesday, October 27, 5:30-7:00 PM at The Wasserman Center, Presentation Room A.  It’s being sponsored by The Stern Business & Law Association and the NYU Opportunities Program.  Whether you’re sure a career in law is for you, or you’re just curious about the field, join the event for round-table conversations and networking!  It’s open to all majors.  RSVP here!

Top 3 Tips on LinkedIn for Career Changers

Julbert Abraham, MBA – is the CEO of AGM, a LinkedIn Marketing and Training firm in New Jersey. He is a serial entrepreneur and a social media marketing instructor. 

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average professional in America now only stays in a role for about four and a half years. Prior to being an Entrepreneur, I had my share of career changes. I was able to learn from each of the phases and I have used social media to facilitate my transitions. One of the main tools that I used during my career changes was LinkedIn. Here are the top 3 tips that will help you as a career changer to maximize LinkedIn for your journey:

Tip #1- Developing a professional LinkedIn profile

With over 347 Million professionals on LinkedIn, you have to create a powerful presence with a complete LinkedIn profile. To achieve that goal, you need the following:

–        A professional headshot and background header

–        Attention grabbing headline that describes the value that you bring to an employer in 120 characters or less

–        A personalized and optimized summary section that makes it easier to find you and speaks directly to potential recruiters and employers about your capabilities and your accomplishments

–        Highlighting your past experiences with bullet points on how you were able to make a difference in your prior positions

–        Three to five recommendations from your peers and/or past clients who had an opportunity to work with you

Tip #2 – Connecting with strategic industry recruiters

Now that you are changing careers, you have to answer the following questions:

–        What exactly are you looking to do?

–        What industry would you like to work in?

–        Where would you like to work?

–        What are the top 5 companies that you would like to work for?

Once you are able to answer these questions, you can now work with alumni and recruiters to help you with your search. You can use the Advanced Search tool on LinkedIn to help you find these key recruiters that you can connect with then reach out to them for a conversation. There are thousands of recruiters out there and it is very important that you find two to three recruiters that can work with you and help you find your next career.

Tip# 3- Participate in LinkedIn Groups

As a career changer, think of this opportunity as your own business where you have to create a personal brand and market yourself effectively. With LinkedIn groups, you are able to join some niche communities. These communities may also be where your next employer goes to learn from industry experts. You can establish a presence in these groups by doing the following:

–        Participating in current discussions

–        Sharing valuable content that may benefit the group as a whole

–        Interacting with some of the key contributors and other members of the groups

Within a few months, you may become the “Go-to Guy or Gal” in the group who is providing value. This strategy will not only allow you to create a personal brand it will also allow you to interact with your potential employers, develop a relationship with them on and off LinkedIn which may lead to an interview and hopefully your new career.

To learn more tips like this from Julbert Abraham, be sure to reserve your spot at the Career Changers Conference on Friday, October 16th 2015 where he will be hosting a session on “Using LinkedIn for your Career Change.

In Case You Missed It: Fall 2015 Job & Internship Fair

Click on the image below for a recap of the Fall 2015 Job & Internship Fair.

Thanks to all of our students & employers for participating!

My Journey Into Ad Tech

Interview with Aleks Navratil, Data Scientist, Collective, Inc.

 Aleks Navratil is recent graduate who has worked in ad tech for his entire professional career. He is an avid alpine skier, and grower of excellent mustaches. He survives almost entirely on spicy Thai food and croissants. When he’s not writing code at Collective’s worldwide HQ in midtown, he can be found getting his dunk on at the 21st street basketball courts or knee-deep in literary fiction at the New York Public Library.

 1.     What did you study in school?

I was an undergraduate double major in Engineering and Applied Mathematics, and my graduate degree is in Mechanical Engineering.

2. But you’re a Data Scientist at Collective…how are those degrees related to what you do?

Computationally, the toolchains and techniques are very similar. During my graduate research, my title happened to be “mechanical engineer,” but I was doing something very close to data science. I worked in an aerospace technology lab, researching things like the friction and wear of aerospace materials. The computational tools used in that research turned out to be the best tools for working with large-scale data, which is what I do here. The only difference is that instead of an aerospace application, it’s advertising. The mathematics doesn’t know what it’s being applied to. It’s the same whether we’re counting ad impressions or turbojet compressor revolutions.

 3. What was your original plan for your career?

Throughout school I had a lot of internships and worked on projects for widely different industries, but I still didn’t have a set plan for my future. I figured the best thing to do was to talk to a lot of smart people who were excited about what they did, and who were having a good time while doing it. I wanted to be where they were. And the more I spoke with people, the more I realized I was actually a Computational Scientist, not a Mechanical Engineer.

 4. What made you want to get into Advertising?

Basic research is a long-cycle business, and I’m better suited by temperament for applied work, perhaps development instead of research. Had I stuck with University research, my work wouldn’t have come to fruition for 20-30 years. I knew that in advertising, my work would affect the business in real time. And for someone who has spent most of his life tinkering with machines, it’s a refreshing change to participate in our cultural narrative. Advertising is everywhere and shapes our lives in so many ways; it’s been very interesting to see that process from the inside.

 5. What made you join Collective?

Collective was recruiting on campus, and they invited me to come in, meet the team, and see what their technology and culture were like. It was a great experience from square one. I realized pretty quickly that the tech org was filled with smart people who had rigorous technical backgrounds. People were (and are!)  very excited about their work and about delivering real results. It had the laid-back, fun culture I was looking for. I could tell they would provide me with the computational and intellectual support I’d need to be successful. But the thing that sold me the most was actually more philosophical than technical. Collective’s tech org had a very particular design code. There was a sense of craftsmanship that pervaded the systems they’d built. They paid close attention to detail to ensure balance and simplicity in their design. It’s a real pleasure to work in an environment where everyone walks in the door knowing there’s as much art as there is science in any design problem.

 6. What advice do you have for students looking to join Collective?

The most important thing is to be able to view the current state of your project, as a starting point for a process of improvement. You should come with a positive outlook and be results oriented. Always work to increase your productivity. Most problems don’t come neatly packaged so you’ll need to be relentlessly resourceful to work through them. Be comfortable with creative control of your work as there’s no Big Brother managing everything you do. And be ready to have fun! We work diligently but enjoy ourselves while doing it.

My Fulbright to Bulgaria: Teaching English and Cultural Exchange

Ariel Bloomer is a first year master’s student of Higher Education and Student Affairs at NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. She graduated with a B.A. in creative writing from Scripps College in California, and spent the following year teaching English in Bulgaria. More insights on her Fulbright year can be found on her blog, the Unintentional Explorer (http://unintentionalexplorer.wordpress.com/).

I may be a Steinhardt master’s student now, but I still clearly remember the existential stress of my senior year of undergrad where I had to decide what to do after graduation. Over the course of my undergraduate studies, I had discovered and indulged interests in student affairs, writing, travel, and religious studies. Knowing what I was interested in was a first step, but knowing what do with those interests… it was like unfamiliar choreography.

I applied for programs to teach abroad because my curiosity about the world was the most insistent. I was fortunate to be awarded a Fulbright fellowship to teach English in Bulgaria. The Fulbright U.S. Student Program offers research/study and English teaching grants to U.S. citizens that have earned Bachelor’s degrees. Although it is a teaching program, Fulbright seeks applicants who have various levels of teaching experience and do not require applicants to have completed a degree in education. For instance, I had little experience with teaching. However, some countries do look for applicants with previous teaching experience.

I decided Fulbright was the right program for me because its mission so closely matched my own. The Fulbright program, under the U.S. Department of State, has a goal to increase mutual understanding between citizens of the U.S. and those of countries around the world. As a writer, this goal of cross-cultural communication spoke to me. I knew that Bulgaria, often-neglected in the realm of travel writing, would offer fertile ground for me to practice creative non-fiction in my spare time.

 In addition, I saw the Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship Program as an opportunity to try on a new role in the field of education and immerse myself in a new culture and language. It was also an opportunity to use the skills I had learned in Balkan Dance, a class I thought would not be useful beyond satisfying my fine art requirement. This course influenced my desire to apply to teach English in Bulgaria. Somewhere in Bulgaria was a choreography I at least sort of knew.

 In the year I spent abroad in Smolyan, in the Rhodope Mountains where Bulgaria meets Greece, I did not learn to teach. My hit-and-miss lessons were more misses than hits. I did build lasting relationships with teachers and students, facilitated a creative writing club at a high school, spent the fall attending weekly folkdance classes with a Geography teacher from my school, and I learned to cook some of Bulgaria’s unique dishes, a blend of Slavic, Turkish, and Mediterranean fare. I read extensively, took an online travel writing course, and kept a detailed journal. I traveled the Balkan Peninsula by bus and train. I learned that my passion for education is geared towards student development outside of the classroom. This led me to pursue a master’s degree in higher education and student affairs. More so, Fulbright helped to fine tune my research interests in student outcomes in, and access to, international education.

Now that I contemplate a doctoral program in my not-so-distant future, I wonder if Fulbright will again be a part of my journey forward. I taught English through my grant, but the program also offers research opportunities for those with a Bachelor’s degree to conduct independent projects abroad. It is a unique opportunity to follow a passion, carry out grant-funded research, serve as a U.S. cultural ambassador, and learn a dance you never knew before.

 To learn more about the Fulbright U.S. Student Program, attend an upcoming Fulbright Information Session for Graduate Students at The Wasserman Center (133 East 13th Street, 2nd Floor, Presentation Room B) on Thursday March 12th from 1pm to 2pm. RSVP Today!

Throwback Thursday: Women’s Foreign Policy Group Mentoring Fair 2013

Heading to the Women’s Foreign Policy Group Mentoring Fair tonight 2/26 6-9pm? Here’s a recap of the event in 2013! 

The Women’s Foreign Policy Group 2013 Mentoring Fair brought together dozens of foreign policy professionals and NYU students for a night of quick but critical insights to the field.

Even WFPG’s president, Patricia Ellis, participated by speaking on her experience as a journalist for fifteen years.


Donna Welton, with over twenty-five years of experience as a diplomat and arts professional, shared her public diplomacy experiences in Japan, Indonesia, Afghanistan, and Washington. She emphasized the need for interpersonal skills, as diplomacy is often done one person at a time.

But don’t let event’s name mislead you: several male mentors also gave their vital expertise on how to effectively work the international affairs career path.

Donna was joined by David Firestein, Vice President for the Strategic Trust-Building Initiative and Track 2 Diplomacy at the EastWest Institute, who gave valuable advice on entering a career with the US Foreign Service. David stressed that the State Department’s biggest need is smart people who can effectively communicate, recalling an experience in China where he needed to negotiate with an air traffic controller in order to secure an immediate flight out of the country.

Dan Konigsburg of Deloitte underscored the fact that professionals should bring every part of themselves to their profession, rather than have the two severed. Upon telling me that he never leaves a big event without three business cards, I astutely handed him mine.

With mentoring rounds lasting fifteen minutes each, attendees found the event helpful despite the fast pace. To learn more about the Women’s Foreign Policy Group and future mentoring fairs, visit http://www.wfpg.org/.

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

Myths vs. Facts! Breaking down the common misconceptions, urban legends, and false facts around landing a job in STEM fields!

MYTH #1: There are only Engineering jobs for Computer Science majors.

Fact: Two of the fastest-growing engineering fields, industrial engineering and petroleum engineering, staff two of the largest proportions of older workers. In both, 25% of currently employed workers are 55 years or older. Industrial engineers are vital to many manufacturing firms that struggle to find the right technically oriented talent, so the aging workforce is a threat. Petroleum engineering, meanwhile, has had a noticeable undersupply of graduates coming into the marketplace in the last few years. So, among many other fields, these two fastest-growing engineering fields are looking to hire recent graduates. To help you find jobs within your major, the Wasserman Center hosts several networking opportunities with employers looking to hire students majoring in a variety of fields including Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Civil Engineering. Make sure to check NYU CareerNet for any upcoming opportunities.

MYTH #2: Engineering students can’t join professional clubs or work during school.

Fact: Engineering students study most of the time, but not ALL of the time. The number of hours recommended for study and revision in engineering is similar to any other degree: 10 hours per course. So unless you’re doing a conjoint or accelerated pathway, you would be taking four courses per semester, hence committing to a total of 40 hours of study per week, including your lecture times. So join a professional organization or club, work some exercise in, network with employers through On Campus Recruitment; but most of all, enjoy your time in college and develop some transferrable skills.

MYTH #3: There is no variety of study or concentration in Engineering.

Fact: Branches of engineering include aerospace, biomedical, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, environmental, forensic, genetic, mechanical, military, nuclear, reverse, software, and structural. 

MYTH #4: There are no examples of women in Engineering who have created something cool and innovative.

Fact: The first computer program was predicted by Ada Lovelace in a paper she published in 1843. Ada suggested the plan for calculating Bernoulli numbers with a new calculating engine called the “Analytical Engine”. Between 1842 and 1843, she translated an article by Italian military engineer Luigi Menabrea on the engine, which she supplemented with an elaborate set of notes of her own, simply called Notes. These notes contain what many consider to be the first computer program—that is, an algorithm designed to be carried out by a machine. Lovelace’s notes are important in the early history of computers. If you’re interested in meeting and speaking with an all-women panel of professionals and alumnae within STEM careers, check out the upcoming Women in STEM Career Panel on March 4th, from 4:30pm to 6:30pm.

From Peer to Peer: Advice on Preparing for the Engineering and Technology Career Fair

by Mehak Hasmi

The Wasserman Engineering and Technology Career Fair at the Polytechnic School of Engineering is Thursday February 12th and I am eager to share a few tips and tricks to help you make the most of your experience at the fair and, of course, score an interview.

Aside from putting on you best professional business attire, the first thing to do before walking into the career fair is to research the companies attending and note those that you would like to visit. Wasserman has made checking out participating employers easy with the Career Fair + App. If you haven’t downloaded it already, I recommend doing so ASAP via the Apple App Store or the Google App Store. Knowing companies that will be attending gives you a leg up from others who just show up to the career fair nervous, simply seeking a job or internship. Now you don’t have to perform in-depth research on every company, but just enough to familiarize yourself with the companies that interest you. Topics that I have found beneficial to research in advance include the organizations culture, their competitors, and how their open positions might be a good fit for you. You can use this information as leverage to create a memorable conversation with a recruiter. This way when you apply, he/she will recall your name and the great conversation you initiated.

In my past four years at the School of Engineering, I have attended several career fairs as well as national conferences with NSBE (National Society of Black Engineers) and SHPE (Society of Hispanic Engineers). If I advise one thing to students who are going to a career fair, it would be to learn how to give a firm handshake and maintain eye contact when speaking with the recruiter. It says a lot about you because your first impression is pretty much your last impression.  You can have a 4.0 GPA and speak perfect English, but aside from that, your demeanor plays an important role. Recruiters want to get to know you as a person. They want to offer internships and jobs to individuals who will be able to manage teams and work well with those from diverse backgrounds. You have to be able to prove that you can work collaboratively with others and the only way you are going to do that is by putting confidence in yourself.

For me, interviews are always a nerve-wracking experience, but after a number of interviews, I have realized that perception is reality. The way you see yourself to the employer is the way you are going to present yourself to the employer. It is important to place confidence in yourself and to remember that recruiters want you to work for them just as badly as you seek to gain access to their organization. Career fairs present unique opportunities for NYU student’s to connect with employers and to get a shot at interviewing for a summer internship or full-time job. It is not always big things to remember, but little things that are key to helping you prepare for a successful experience at a NYU career fair. I wish everyone good luck at the fair!

RSVP for the Spring Engineering & Technology Career Fair on Thursday February 12th here!
