MAPS: Careers and Coffee

This series of presentations and get-togethers will introduce Barnard students to professionals in a broad range of careers and industries so that they can get an honest picture of what it’s all about—the real scoop. Guest speakers, consisting mostly of Barnard alumnae, will come to campus to hold informal chats with students or participate in panel presentations based on targeted industries. Sharing academic and career stories, providing professional advice, and fielding questions, will result in the kind of insider knowledge you can’t get just anywhere. Students will gain exposure to career paths they may not have considered, along with the encouragement to seek additional knowledge about a particular industry.
