Alumni Career Panel Advice Soothed Frayed Job Search Nerves

Mar 8 2021

On February 18,  our panel featuring three STS '20 alums shared stories and strategies for pandemic career building. Hailing from a variety of industries and career pathways, they shared their journeys after STS and Stanford including how they navigated searching for a job during a pandemic and how they pitched STS to interviewers. Our audience engaged them in a lively discussion about researching companies, and the importance of requesting 15-20 minute meetings to learn about possible career paths. Key takeaways were: stay in touch with your facultly mentiors, beef up your LinkedIn and don’t worry so much! Most companies are hiring you for your aptitude and potential; that’s why they have onboarding and training. Stay in touch with STS; we would love to hear how things are going!
