Thinking Beyond the Job Application
In Focus began as a means of helping to demystify the kinds of roles that comprise complex (and often confusing) industries. Today, it has become a multi-industry event and workshop series that provides semester-long insights into a range of fields that are popular with Barnard students, welcoming employers and alums to help provide expert on-the-ground guidance and perspective (while connecting students to specific opportunities).
Students are often generally aware of law school, but don't have visibility on the many different ways to practice as an attorney — let alone the issues and decisions that individuals face when considering a career. The same goes for popular fields and destinations including the arts, finance, nonprofits, tech, and consulting. Concurrently, employers are enthusiastic to provide more than the typical/traditional information session. They're excited to bring to Barnard practitioners in their field to help students build skills and knowledge to make them better candidates.
In Focus represents some of Beyond Barnard's best collaborations with Corporate and Philanthropic Partners. It allows employers to connect with students they know are committed to their industry. And it expands and deepens recruiting conversations, helping students think about their motivation to pursue a particular field. Questions about In Focus? Ask email@example.com.
