Your Career, Your Community

  • This event has passed.

As a PhD student or postdoc would you like to use your expertise to work on local projects that you can then leverage for future career opportunities? A collaboration between Cornell’s Careers Beyond Academia and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County is offering lunch and a chance to hear about current local opportunities as well as a chance to tell us what you are interested in working on. We can then take those interests back to the county and city administrators and work with you and them to develop projects.

Friday, January 24 @ 11:30 to 1 pm in 100 Mann Library

To Register

We will share existing project opportunities focused on the environment, but these are continually expanding. Furthermore, you can come to us with your interests and academic specializations to have a conversation about what you’d like to work on in the local community (health, incarceration, transportation, food systems, opioids, energy, strategic tourism, early childhood…).

Come and join us for lunch on 1/24 from 11:30 AM to 1 PM in 100 Mann Library. There will be a presentation from 11:30 to about 12 and the rest of the time for (more) eating, talking and sharing of ideas. If you can’t make it until after 12 no problem, we can catch you up.
