Alumni Convo: Starting A Career Remotely

Starting a new position can be exciting and anxiety provoking all at the same time, not to mention when you need to start a new role remotely in the middle of a pandemic. Join current senior Marisa Balanda Dec. '20 for an informal conversation with alums Kasey Varner '14, Project Manager at Bravo Group, and Morgan Marianelli '15, Content Coordinator for Comcast Business, on making the most out of your on-boarding experience. Each of them recently started new roles at new companies and will share tips and advice based on their personal experiences: How do you build positive working relationships with colleagues? How to navigate workplace culture and virtual meeting/communication platforms? Bring your questions!
