On Thursday, Oct. 18, speakers Jessy Teicher ’04 and Tara Van de Mark '03 from the USAID will host a talk as part of the Professional in Residence Speaker Series at 7:30 p.m. in the Sanford Room.
The Professionals in Residence speaker series was developed to enhance students’ learning in the classroom. Discussions are intended to broaden students’ minds by discussing relevant and timely issues in business that includes a variety of fields and points of view. The program provides an opportunity for alumni and alumnae to return to campus to share their perspectives on the challenges they face in their respective industries while interacting with students and faculty. Speakers typically talk about their career paths and current positions, as well as offer advice to students that are interested in working in their field as to what it takes to be a marketable candidate.
