Fall 2022 Graduate Career Events

Dec 19 2022 | By Kristen Henlin

The Graduate Career Placement team hosted an Employer Expo series instead of a traditional career fair, which allowed employers to create targeted events for specific programs. We could only have hosted such successful showcases with the help of our amazing alums. Students had the opportunity to connect with Wells Fargo, thanks to Xuefei “Rebecca” Yuan (PhD ‘10, Applied Mathematics), and learned about the Quantitative Analytics internship program and full-time roles within the firm. Following, students connected with Bank of America, thanks to Mike Purewal (PhD ‘08, Applied Physics), where they learned about the bank’s robust summer internship program.

The MechE, EEE, and APAM departments continued their partnership of hosting industry showcases. We hosted two showcases this semester, focusing on roles in the consulting and data science industries. Harish Ramesh (MS ‘19, Materials Science) sat on our consulting panel, answering questions about his work as a Life Science consultant at Azzur Group. We hosted Mushan Zhang (MS ‘21, Applied Mathematics) on our Data panel, who provided insight on her role as a Data Scientist at Simon-Kucher and Partners.

The Medical Physics program hosted an alumnus each month to learn about their career trajectories. In September, students chatted with Peter Aiden (MS ‘21, Medical Physics), who discussed his experience as a Chief Medical Physics Resident at Landauer. In October, Will Martin (MS ‘19, Medical Physics) returned to provide students with tips on the residency application process and to discuss life at Montefiore. In November, Lyu Huang (MS ‘20, Medical Physics) spoke about his journey to Northwell Health. We ended the semester with alum chats from Kevin Liu (MS ‘20, Medical Physics), a doctoral student at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, and Aimee Moses (MS ‘20, Applied Mathematics), a Machine Learning Engineer at Expedition Technology.

If you are interested in collaborating with the department for a virtual event or have full- time/part-time, or summer internships available, please reach out to the Graduate Career Placement team at [email protected].
