Over at another local college, more career options were explored in a celebration on the heels of Black History Month.
SUNY Broome’s Applied Learning and Career Center held a Preparing for a Career and Career Opportunities in Healthcare panel discussion and networking event.
The emcee, Angela Riley, serves as the Executive Director of Experiential Education and Assistant Dean at Binghamton University’s School of Pharmacy.
She says being able to talk to people who have actually been in your shoes makes all the difference. “If you’re able to ask your questions, your personal challenges or just thinks you’ve thought about to someone that has lived through that experience. You can connect that to your own experience and overcome any perceived any barriers or obstacles to reach that goal.”
The panel featured health care professionals in a variety of positions such as medical assistant, dentist and nurses.
