Graduate School of Technology Hosts Executive Forum
IT Industry Professionals Share Career Advice With Students
It was a packed house, but this year’s career night discussion went beyond the confines of the assembly hall to include the online sphere as well. The organizers of this year’s Graduate School of Technology Executive Forum event asked guests and attendees to tweet their questions while the panel of five Information Technology (IT) professionals spoke about their careers and revealed advice on how to get their feet in the door of the technology industry today.
The November 25th panel included Abe Cytryn (@abe19), chief technology officer and manager of @mobilemagzter; Shay David, co-founder and chief revenue officer @Kaltura; Hal Friedlander, chief information officer for the New York City Department of Education; Evelyn Fuhrer, managing director @PromontoryFinancial Group; and Phil Teplitzky, Chief Technology Officer of HPSquared, LLC. After the 90-minute discussion, students networked directly with the panelists for over an hour.
