For so many, the past several months have been incredibly challenging. Events such as the magnified impacts of COVID-19, the resulting economic recession, and a renewed attention on race relations brought on by the pain of seeing George Floyd and so many other black lives taken at the hands of systemic racism, including protests across the country have likely led many of you to re-evaluate the way that you think about everyday life, and what you might want to do with your lives after graduation.
In response, AAP Connect/Career Services and AAP NYC are partnering to present a series of department-specific panel discussions with AAP alumni. These will be informal and interactive group dialogues to discuss navigating an uncertain and complex career journey in planning and ways you can still advance positive change and design a safer and more just world for all during turbulent times. The alumni will share their experiences finding jobs and how their expectations and thinking about how their own skills changed over the years.
