Tech + Today's Worker: Upgrading Your Skills in Every Phase of LIfe

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

7:00 PM

It's not just kids who need to get savvy in science, tech, engineering and math (STEM subjects) to survive the global economy.

Join WNYC's host of New Tech City, Manoush Zomorodi, for an evening of insight, advice and networking to help you figure the next stage of your working life and understand how continuing education can fit in.

 

What can recent graduates do to make themselves more attractive to employers in this tough job market? How can mid-career professionals stay relevant and advance their careers in a quickly changing digital marketplace? As we live longer lives, what role do these subjects play for seniors, whether they are retired or looking for work?

We'll get answers from:

- Carmen Scheidel, Vice President of Learning + Development at Time, Inc.

- Tom Kamber, founding executive director of Older Adults Technology Services (OATS), the largest municipal technology program for senior citizens in the country

- Larry Harris, Chief Marketing Officer of PubMatic, a startup ad tech company in Manhattan

Then join Manoush and the panel for a cocktail mingle while the founder of the new School for Poetic Computation, Zach Lieberman, will put on a show that will make you think about the intersection of creativity and tech in a wild new way.
