Overview:

The Careers Committee supports the career development of PennNYC members through two primary means: education and networking. Members’ career knowledge will be heightened through the committee’s mentorship program, online resources, panels, and training-focused workshops. Members will also be provided networking opportunities through planned social events and industry-specific contacts. Our overall goal is to improve members’ business savvy and help them achieve a professional edge.
