Global Career Night 2021

Speaker: Various Speakers
Date: February 24, 2021
Time: 4:00PM

Hear from a virtual panel of phenomenal UNC alumni in globally focused careers! Panelists represent a variety of career options: government, private industry, NGOs, and more. They will share their professional journeys from studying (like you!) at UNC, through the career searches, networking, and life choices that led them to their current roles.

In the Q&A, panelists will take your questions on everything from advice on the job hunt to sustainable career growth over the years. Wherever you are in your UNC experience, this panel is perfect for you — from first years just starting to explore their interests, to seniors scrolling Handshake and attending job fairs.

Panelists include:
Sarah Bidgood, director of the Eurasia Nonproliferation Program at the Center for Nonproliferation Studies.
Sarah Champagne, freelance journalist with a focus on peace and conflict resolution.
Will Jarvis, director of marketing and operations at Tanjo, a machine learning startup.
Melani McAlister, professor of American studies and international affairs at George Washington University.
Hakeem Smith, business analyst for Amazon, working for the Talent Development team with the Product Assurance, Risk, and Security organization.
