On November 21, 2013, New York Needs You (NYNY), in collaboration with the Office of Partnerships & Community Engagement, held an Industry Insider event focused on the Liberal Arts. This Industry Insiders is the first of five workshops to be held for students to meet professionals from different industries related to the majors offered at the College and to help first-year students prepare to choose a major next spring.
Over 60 Guttman first and second-year students attended the event to gain a better understanding of how to apply a Liberal Arts degree to their future careers. This networking opportunity gave students a better understanding of writing in the industry, talent strategy, performance management, editing, global account management, legislative financial analysis, education, and anti-money laundering.
The NYNY Industry Insiders workshops offer Guttman students an opportunity to meet professionals from various industries to gain valuable insights into what they do and what they did to get there. “I found it so helpful, and now I am certain about majoring in Liberal Arts,” said first-year student Kristina Quiles.
