Whether you’re an undergraduate focusing in on your major, or a young professional just launching your career, you want the best advice you can get — on what path to pursue, how to get your foot in the door when you decide where you’re going — and how to get ahead when you get there.
What is it really like to work in a particular field? And what are employers looking for? The next generation is looking for the inside scoop — from someone who’s been there, and knows what it’s like to be in their shoes. Like the insider’s view that financial journalist and television reporter John Spiropoulos gives our students in this video clip (below) from his Master Class at American University:
The Next Generation Initiative is your connection to experienced professionals who know what they’re talking about. Imagine sitting down with a White House correspondent and hearing where the news industry is headed. Or meeting with an executive at Google’s famous Googleplex. Imagine getting the insider’s view from leaders like:
• The CEO of the third largest pharmaceutical company in the world • A pioneer in 3-D printing • A partner in the 8th largest law firm in the U.S. • The Harvard-trained CEO of a billion dollar company • A robotics scientist from MIT’s Media Lab • A documentary film-maker • Or the CEO who spun off 24 companies from the 24,000-employee strong, multi-billion dollar multinational he founded. If you can imagine that connections like these can be a big boost to a young person launching a career, you’d be right.
That’s why you should make the connection today, and register online to make sure you get our Launchpad updates, with career advice and news from our NextGen network of Master Class leaders executives and mentors, along with updates on internships and other opportunities from the Next Generation Initiative.
