Career Events Featuring APAM Alumni

Jun 09 2020 | By Kristen Henlin

This spring the APAM Department welcomed back Kelley Litzner (MS ’08, Applied Physics) from the Emerging Technologies Laboratory at Lockheed Martin to speak with undergraduate and graduate students about new opportunities within his group. Laurie Calvet (BS ’95, Applied Physics) hosted a roundtable discussion where she provided insight on her experience as a head female researcher at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) in Paris, France.

Due to the evolving situation with COVID- 19, our Department hosted virtual career events to keep our students engaged. Our medical physics program had the pleasure of connecting with Christopher Smitherman, Chief Technical Officer and Director of Diagnostic Physics, at Petrone Associates. APAM students with an interest in technical consulting had the opportunity to engage with alumni from BCG, McKinsey, and Exponent. Undergraduate students with an interest in the pharmaceutical industry attended a panel discussion with alumni at Johnson & Johnson.

Given the current climate, some students are facing uncertainty regarding employment. If you have full-time, part-time, or summer internships available, feel free to reach out to the APAM Career Placement Officer, Kristen Henlin, at kah2247@columbia.edu.
