Gregg Lois, Arete Associates

We are holding a special reception for undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral students before the colloquium at 4pm - this reception will run from 2:30 to 3:30 pm in Broida 3302.

This will be an opportunity to talk to Gregg and ask him any questions that you may have about finding a job and about life outside of academia. There will be lots of food !!!!!

Gregg is a dynamic and engaging lecturer. I encourage you to attend both the reception and the talk!

The title and abstract of Gregg's colloquium talk are given below:


What will you do after graduation?


Four years ago I decided to leave academics and pursue commercial work at Arete Associates.  I will discuss my experiences and the lessons I learned during my job search and subsequent employment.  This is not a "how-to"

presentation for finding satisfying work outside academics, but rather a recounting of my journey through the process.
