Sixth Annual Career Night – Wednesday, March 15, 2017
On Wednesday, March 15th, the Tufts Environmental Alumni (TEA) hosted what has become a highly anticipated annual event for Tufts undergraduate and graduate students interested in entering the environmental field. This year approximately 50 students were able to receive practical, real-world career advice from a panel that included Dr. Barry Levy (A’66), Jim Young (A’76), Kate Konschnik (J’94), and Alyssa Le (A’14), all Tufts graduates. Ms. Le was able to provide an interesting perspective as only three years ago she had attended TEA’s third annual career night as an undergraduate looking to start her career.
The focus of the evening explained how to go about seeking and securing environmental job opportunities, and advice varied from how to leverage multiple networks of contacts to overcoming concerns about the “impostor syndrome”. Also featured was considerable discussion about how career paths can change over time, and the importance of seizing opportunities when they are presented…even if they might perfectly fit into your vision for your own career path.
Attending as well were approximately 25 alumni, including the four panel members, and four members of the TEA Steering Committee. All were there as part of their commitment to helping students in the field. Following the panel discussion, all of the students and alums had the opportunity to network together.
The panel was moderated by Mark Taitz (A’71), and facilitated with support from Tufts Institute of the Environment, and the Offices of Alumni Relations, Career Services, Sustainability, and the Environmental Studies Program.
