Pre-med turned health-tech senior seeking opportunities in NYC & Boston

Hello!  I’ve always been on the pre-med track, but lately I’ve become interested in the health-tech industry.  I’m applying to jobs in that field in the New York and Boston areas.  I would love to hear from any alumni currently or previously working in health-tech, particularly if you started as pre-med too.  Thank you!

Junior seeking opportunity to use creative skills in business fields

I am a third-year international student from Jamaica looking to make connections with those working in the fields of international business and marketing. I have always been interested in the creative and business industries and would love to learn more about how to explore and bridge the two. To date, I have only had internship experience working in accounting as an assistant to the credit controller for an agro-producer and in marketing as an executive marketing assistant for some corporate companies in the Caribbean region. These experiences have been very valuable, but I am now looking to apply and further develop the skills that I have garnered through an internship in the U.S. or wider international market. I am curious to see if there are any alumni who have successfully gone about using their creative skills in the business industry. I would greatly appreciate any advice and guidance on how best to navigate the industry as an international student in order to gain valuable internship experience and make some useful connections.

Senior seeks advice from alums who took several years off before MD/PhD program.

Hi!  I’ve always wanted to do a MD/PhD program and go into clinical research, but I’m planning to take a few years off first so that I can have some experience with clinical research and know that’s what I want to do.  I’d like to talk to someone who’s been down this path before, about how to pursue short-term research jobs (I’m just starting my search) and who to make the most of this time before pursing graduate school.
