If your mid-terms made you eager thinking about your future at Wagner and beyond, the next few weeks with WPA will help you do just that. Next week WPA second-years will join the Wagner PNP Group Advisement Session (for first-years) to help provide their perspective on courses, professors, career trajectory and more. With the Office of Career Services, we have confirmed the panelists for the career panels that WPA is sponsoring. We hope you will join us at the Government Careers and Policy and Research Careers for thoughtful conversation on how to get into these sectors, the best place to job search for these jobs, and what they actually do. These panels will be moderated by a member of the WPA Board and more details are below. Next week, the WPA Board is also partaking in a volunteer activity where we will help the Food Bank for NYC conduct surveys with their emergency food programs across the Boroughs. We’re looking forward to learning and giving back and will share the details with you in a blog after! We’re also in the midst of planning our State of the City and Presidential events for the Spring with some exciting participants, so stay tuned!
