Many alumni are becoming painfully aware of the effects of the current financial downturn. PennNYC has created a panel of experts to help alumni navigate this storm - primarily with respect to the job market and individual careers. Following the panel, there will be a networking reception with light refreshments and drinks (wine, beer, soda and water) sponsored by the Trustees' Council of Penn Women. This event is open to all alumni.
The panel features:
- Steven Greenhouse, New York Times workplace reporter and author of The Big Squeeze: Tough Times for the American Worker. Long before most analysts noticed the downturn, Greenhouse was reporting how troubled our economy looked from the bottom-up.
- Marci Alboher C’88, author of One Person/ Multiple Career: The New Model of Work/Life Success. The job for life has lost its place as a symbol of economic security and now workers realize that it’s up to them to cultivate other income, marketable talents and ways to feel fulfilled
- Moderator Darby Dunn C'88, founder of public relations firm DarbyDunnCommunications.com and a former news anchor/reporter who worked for CNBC, CNN, and WNBC.
