McCay Co-Authors STEM Opinion Piece

NY6 Project Manager Deanna McCay is co-author of a recently published opinion piece, "Preparing Graduate Students for STEM Careers Outside Academia," which appears in the current online edition of Eos: Earth & Space Science News. The article notes that more than 50 percent of all doctoral degree holders in STEM fields do not work in academia or do research as their primary job. McCay and her co-authors recommend a number of strategies to prepare students for a broader range of career options, many of which are applicable to undergraduate students in STEM majors as well.

SLU to host NY6 Career Fair

The first New York Six career fair, called NY6 Career | Connect, will be held Saturday, September 15, from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm at St. Lawrence University. The event will be held at SLU's Sullivan Student Center, and coincides with the 8th Annual NY6 Undergraduate Research Conference.

The event will feature internship and career opportunities with companies and organizations in Upstate New York, as well as graduate schools in the region. Why Upstate? Why not? "Students have chosen to make this region their collegiate home, and there are abundant opportunities for them to gain experience, further their education, and launch their careers here," said NY6 Executive Director Amy Cronin. "It seems appropriate for the Consortium to help the schools draw together representatives of these organizations so that students can learn about what Upstate has to offer, beyond a remarkable undergraduate experience." 

Students and employers are asked to register for the event using this form. Keep an eye on the NY6 website for updates on organizations that will be represented at the event!
