The SIPA Office of Career Services has launched a webinar program specifically for our alumni audience (although current students may find it useful). We will regularly host webinars and bring to our alumni career professionals who are expert in various career topics, ranging from accessing the hidden job market, to marketing/positioning yourself in the job market, to salary negotiation and everything in between. To register see the information below the webinar links.

During the webinar, you will be able to ask questions and make comments by either typing your question in a chat box or raising your hand virtually. If you raise your hand, the host will un-mute you, allowing you to be heard by all participants. This process will be explained in full by the moderator during the first few moments of the webinar. About one week after the webinar, the presentation recording will be posted on our website. You will be able to download the webinar, save it on your desktop, and view/listen to it again.
