6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
About the Career Panel
Today everything is tech, and tech is everything—at least it seems that way. Tech affects our lives more and more. It gives us new and radical ways to change peoples’ lives. And it gives you exciting, dynamic, and unprecedented career opportunities to explore.
This panel brings together a group of GC alumni across academic fields who’ve gone into tech in a variety of roles—from digital marketing to web development, entrepreneurship and, yes, even writing—without a degree in computer science. Come learn about their journeys from academia to tech, hear their insights about strategies and mindsets to get hired, have your questions answered, and network with the speakers and like-minded peers.
This panel will be moderated by Dr. Lisa Rhody, Deputy Director of Digital Initiatives at the GC. The panelists include:
- Zach Davis, English (Senior Developer and Managing Director at Cast Iron Coding Inc.)
- Kathleen Howard, English (Associate Technical Writer & Editor at DigitalOcean)
- Tessa Maffucci, MALS (Digital Marketing Manager at W&P Design)
- Yoni Reinberg, Anthropology (Principal, Chief Technology Officer at Social Ink)
The event will be held Tuesday, September 25 in room 9204 at the GC.
Snacks and refreshments will be served. Please fill out our event registration form to let us know you’re coming.
