AAP Connect and AAP NYC Partner for COVID-19–Era Career Events
AAP Connect, the college's career services office, is partnering with AAP NYC to offer three events as part of an Alumni Panel Virtual Series: Career Development in the COVID-19 Era.
Recognizing the challenges of recent months and events such as the magnified impacts of COVID-19, the resulting economic recession, and a renewed attention on race relations, the series of department-specific panel discussions with AAP alumni are designed as interactive group dialogues to discuss navigating an uncertain and complex career journey in turbulent times and how to "broaden your lens."
The first in the series on June 30 focuses on architecture. Participating alumni include Julia Gamolina (B.Arch. '13), Trahan Architects and Madame Architect; Mark A. Hill (B.Arch. '84), SHAPE–Studio H Architecture Planning Environments; Daniel Kaplan (B.Arch. '84), FXCollaborative; and DeVon Prioleau (B.Arch. '05), Ferzan Company and Pri-O-Leau Development Group, LLC .
On July 1, art alumni panelists share their experiences finding jobs and how their expectations and thinking about their own skills changed over the years. Panelists include sculpture artist Anne Wu (B.F.A. '13); painter and art teacher Mike Picos (B.F.A. '13); and interdisciplinary artist Peter D. Gerakaris (B.F.A. '03).
The CRP panel event on July 2 presents ways to advance positive change and design a safer and more just world during turbulent times. Guests include Celeste Frye (M.S. RS '01), Public Works Partners; Antoine Bryant (U.R.S. '95), Moody Nolan; Amy Kates (B.S. URS '86, M.R.P. '87), Accenture.; and Jordan Exantus (U.R.S.
