Careers and Coffee

Careers and Coffee is a speaker series which will introduce Barnard students to professionals in a broad range of industries, giving students an honest look into industry specific careers. Guest speakers, consisting mostly of Barnard alumnae, will hold informal chats and participate in panel presentations, based on their industry.  These sessions provide the kind of knowledge one can only get from insiders. Students will gain exposure to career paths they may not have considered.
