Parent’s Council Hosts Banking, Medicine and Law Panels

—By Valerie Slade, Minisha Lohani, and Alina Gomez

On Friday afternoon, members of the Parent’s Council held panels on banking, medicine and law for interested students.

Banking
Mark Bye, Managing Director of Morgan Stanley, and Stewart Burton, Vice Chairman of BBC Capital Markets, met with students to discuss possible careers in banking and finance. Both parents of first-year boys, Mr. Bye is an operating partner in a private equity group and Mr. Burton works with senior client companies and investment banking. As Mr. Burton explained, “I do the selling and he does the buying.”

After briefly explaining the paths they took to the banking sector, Mr. Bye and Mr. Burton fielded student questions. Both emphasized that liberal arts students are not disadvantaged against those with business majors; Mr. Bye stressed that Davidson students have the communication and interpersonal skills that many business students lack. He also noted another skill Davidson students possess: “One of the biggest mistakes young professionals make is that they talk too much. So much can be gained by listening.”

Mr. Bye and Mr. Burton told students to find a path in banking that they love, whether that be in analysis and spreadsheets or a more sales-oriented position. They also highlighted the importance of networking and distinguishing yourself from the competition.

Medicine
In the medicine panel Dr. Mirin, Director of Healthcare at Navigant Consulting, Dr. Grayson, an ophthalmologist and developer, and Dr. McKenna, psychiatrist at Harvard, met with over forty students to discuss a career in healthcare. The three doctors spent time answering a broad range of questions, ranging from what a typical day entailed, technology breakthroughs, and gender and work-life balance. Each had a different story regarding how they got to where they are now.

Students listen as parents present on careers in medicine.

Davidson students were also interested in hearing about the future of the healthcare industry as a whole from the doctors on the ground. In a day and age where Obamacare and topics such as end of life care or medical marijuana stymie and cast a shadow of doubt on our system, these doctors don’t feel the shadow or hear the whispers.

All three agreed: “It is a burgeoning field that is continuing to expand—with incredible flexibility and an unending number of opportunities,” said Dr. McKenna, current psychiatrist at Harvard. She added that it is one of the most rewarding jobs as the act of essentially saving another persons life is the ultimate display of selflessness and compassion.

Ultimately the one sentiment echoed was how important it was to go out and spend time with a doctor and see if it is something you can envision yourself doing.  Each of the doctors said they would be happy to have students shadow them. If you would like to contact them or a number of other doctors and medical professionals in the area, contact Frances Alexander at pmmh-l@davidson.edu for more information.

Law
At the Law School Talk with students, parents and alumni, three parents addressed the audience.  They shared their personal stories and advice for students considering law school.

Mrs. Pamela Martinson shared her experience with working in the business and financial sector before attending Harvard Law School.  She moved to Silicon Valley and continues to live and work there in a large firm.  Mrs. Andrea Lairson worked as an analyst at Nike, a career placement adviser at Lewis and Clark, and a few other jobs between earning her English degree at Mount Holyoke and attending law school at the University of Washington School of Law.  She clerked in a circuit court of appeals, which she strongly recommends, after law school.  That led her to work in a large firm in Seattle and now she works almost entirely pro bono helping entrepreneurial non-profit organizations implement governance that helps keep them sustainable.

Lairson’s husband, Mr. Robert W. Gomulkiewics went to college to be a junior high teacher because of his passion for human rights.  He was encouraged, instead, to attend law school and realized this would be best for him, so he attended the University of Washington Law School, where he simultaneously earned a Master’s degree in International Studies.  After law school, he worked at the law firm owned by Bill Gates’ father, where he became interested in software and Intellectual Property law.  He then worked at Microsoft, where he participated as counsel on some of the most prominent cases for the company like one against Apple.  He is now a professor at University of Washington Law School, where he founded the LLM program in Intellectual Property Law.

While in law school, the panelists told the students to be very active in extracurricular activities aside from earning high grades.  Join activities that help develop skills as a leader, writer, thinker, and speaker.  Network while in law school in order to optimize  chances for the best jobs.  They also told students to try out different kinds of law while in law school so that they can decide what they do and do not like, as well as involved in clinics to get hands-on experience.

Remember, there are many different paths to law school and after law school.  The panelists advise that students find something they really love and that makes them valuable to a firm or company.

Thank you to all of the parents who spoke to students about careers in banking, medicine and law.

Caroline Buxton Avinger ’90 Hosts Annual Etiquette Dinner

photo 1 (1)On Wednesday evening, Caroline Buxton Avinger ’90 hosted the annual Etiquette Dinner in the 900 Room. Mrs. Avinger is president of Protocol, LLC, as well an president of The Buckley School of Public Speaking in Camden, South Carolina and a freelance speech writer and copy editor. After earning a bachelor’s degree in English from Davidson and a master’s degree in education from Converse College, Mrs. Avinger received training and certification from The Protocol School of Washington, the nation’s only accredited business etiquette institution.

Almost ninety students attended the four-course dinner, during which Mrs. Avinger explained proper dining etiquette in a business setting. She noted that companies are increasingly incorporating meals into the workplace, such as interviews over lunch, cocktail parties, or corporate Christmas parties. Knowing the proper protocol for these occasions makes them easier to navigate.

photo 2 (1)Mrs. Avinger roamed the room answering questions while students dined on soup, salad, stuffed chicken with green beans and roasted potatoes, and chocolate cake with raspberry sauce. For those who could not attend the event, the following comprise a few of the evening’s lessons:

  • Take a seat from the right. Women should not expect to be seated by men, but should not refuse if offered.
  • Unfold your napkin in your lap and place the crease toward your body.
  • If you must leave for any reason, simply say, “Excuse me.” Do not go into detail.
  • Any business event is about the conversation, not the meal. Be sure to eat slowly.
  • At a restaurant, go for a meal in the mid-range price point. Do not order appetizers unless the employer offers.
  • Do not take leftovers to go unless the employer offers.
  • In a family-style setting, offer to the left, pass to the right.
  • If you are giving a toast, “Keep it short. Keep it simple. Sit down.”
  • If you are the recipient of a toast, do not drink to yourself and do not touch your gphoto 3lass.
  • In an interview, do not feel the need to fill the silence.
  • Do your homework so that you can contribute to the conversation.
  • Let the employer lead the conversation, remain professional, and do not get overly comfortable.

Thank you to Mrs. Avinger for hosting this popular event, once again. And thank you to Dining Services for providing students with a delicious meal and great service.

From Left: Dylan Schweers, Emily Tamilin, and Mitchell Felt

On Wednesday evening, March 19th, Mitchell Feld, Emily Tamilin, and Dylan Schweers of Council for Children’s Right met with students to discuss their summer internship programs. The Council is a non-profit, comprehensive advocacy program for children and provides services such as representation in court and the school system, community planning and policy work, and advocacy in high conflict custody cases and crimes involving children under the age of sixteen. The goal is to affect systemic chance for the 242,000 children in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area.

Mr. Feld is the Director for Strategic Initiatives and runs the internship program; in fact, he began at Council for Children’s Rights as an intern. His primary work within Strategic Initiatives involves work on policy changes that benefit Charlotte children. Mr. Feld noted that he was drawn to the Council after being pleasantly surprised by the amount of responsibility he was given as an intern—he emphasizes that interns are responsible for seeing projects through from start to finish. “We are excited by our mission,” Mr. Feld says. “We want our interns to be, too.”

As a Research and Planning Associate, Emily Tamilin is responsible for getting organizations together to implement best practices and decide the best use of communal resources. “Research entails building the capacity of child-serving agencies to do what they do better and implement programs and procedures that work,” says Ms. Tamilin. This includes synthesizing literature, pulling and analyzing data, and articulating findings to companies.

Dyan Schweers began at Council for Children’s Rights as an intern, but after only three months, he was brought on full-time. As an intern, Mr. Schweers’ was involved in researching exclusionary discipline in schools and working with advocacy attorneys to fight for the rights of children. Mr. Schweers explained that because of the fluidity of the organization, an intern can expect to gain exposure in multiple aspects of the company. Those interested in law school, research, public policy, social work, government work, and variety of other fields can gain valuable experience from the Council.

The Council for Children’s Rights generally accepts about ten interns in the following fields: Advancement, Children’s Defense Team, Community Planning, Custody Advocacy, Individual Advocacy, Policy, Research, and Social Work. Mr. Feld explained that students are welcome to express interest in multiple branches of the company, and an internship can be divided to accommodate this interest. The internships last ten weeks and applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. Visit Council for Children’s Rights to learn more about each position and WildcatLink to apply.

Thank you to Mr. Feld, Ms. Tamilin, and Mr. Schweers for taking time to speak with Davidson students about Council for Children’s Rights.

On March 11, Davidson College was proud to host its Second Annual LGBTQ Alumni Career Panel. The panelists included Heather McKee ’87, Andrew Spainhour ’93, John Syme ’85, and Brad Johnson ’94. The panelists began by discussing their memories of attending Davidson and being LGBTQ in the workplace. The radical difference of Davidson, as it pertains to LGBTQ identity and rights was one of the recurring themes of the evening. The panelists marveled at the strides Davidson has taken in recent years to celebrate, support, and acknowledge LGBTQ identity on campus. Syme stated, “Davidson has changed more since the year 2001 than since when I was here in 1985 and that is truly remarkable.” Syme indicated that Davidson is not only moving in the right direction, but is rapidly changing to be on the right side of history.

The panelists also described their experiences in the corporate world and being LGBTQ, stating that many corporations have an anti-discriminatory stance toward sexual orientation. The company that Spainhour worked for was one of a handful of companies that came out against Amendment One.  He added that the climate toward LGBTQ people in the public and private sector is largely positive. However, Spainhour did state that in NC it is legal to ask potential employees their sexual orientation and fire them based on their LGBTQ identity.

The students were able to ask more targeted questions about the panelists’ experiences in the workplace. One student asked if they felt that someone purposely tried to expose their sexuality with the intention to harm them or get them fired. The panelists stated that they did not feel that anyone purposely tried to “out” them. Syme joked that one of his fellow employees seemed very interested in finding out about his sexual identity and tried to pair him up with a friend of hers.

The panelists expressed optimism for LGBTQ people in North Carolina. They believe that gay marriage and equality will come to North Carolina. Spainhour expressed the importance of being true to himself and everyone around him. He stated, “I wouldn’t dream of going back to a workplace where I would have to hide again.” When a student asked the panelists if they felt that people should leave North Carolina, McKee responded, “I think the only way to win is to stay and fight.” McKee married her classmate, U.S. Navy Capt. Jane Campbell ’87, on a Pearl Harbor Day visit to Hawaii in December.

Ultimately, the panelist were hopeful in regard to being a LGBTQ person in the corporate, academic, and public fields. Although the path to full equality has not yet been realized, it is comforting to know that progress is being made.

Thank you again to all the panelists for sharing your thoughts, stories and insights.

Davidson Parent Robert Strauss Discusses Careers in Journalism

Robert and Ella Strauss '14

Robert and Ella Strauss ’14

On Friday afternoon, Davidson parent Robert Strauss held an informational session for students interested in pursuing a career in journalism. Father of Ella Strauss ’14 and Sylvia Strauss ‘17, Mr. Strauss has been published in numerous national publications, including Sports Illustrated, the Philadelphia Daily News, and the New York Times. In addition, Mr. Strauss served as an adjunct professor in the University of Pennsylvania’s English department for ten years, as well as the University of Delaware’s English department for five years. In 2011, Mr. Strauss published his first book Daddy’s Little Goalie and is currently in the early stages of his latest project, based on his New York Times article “What Do You Want to Be, Now That You’re Grown.”

Mr. Strauss spoke to students about his start in the field of journalism—although he had always had a love of newspapers and sports, he never considered them as a way to make a living. In college, he met a girl he was interested in, who turned out to be the upcoming editor of the college’s newspaper. She asked him to be the paper’s Sports Editor and as Mr. Strauss says, “You can guess why I said yes.” As it turns out, the girl transferred the next semester, and Mr. Strauss was left in charge of the Sports page.

This series of events prompted Mr. Strauss to apply to and attend graduate school at UC-Berkeley for one quarter, after which he dropped out. He bought a bus pass, knocked on doors, and got a newspaper job in Mankato, Minnesota.

Mr. Strauss emphasized that he started out small, and believes the process of entering the field today would be much the same. From there, Mr. Strauss notes, “Every job I’ve ever had had to do with connections.” He encouraged students to use their Davidson connections, family connections, and any other connection available to get a foot in the door. “Anybody can do entry-level jobs,” says Mr. Strauss. “The hard part is getting one.”

As a freelance journalist, Mr. Strauss shared with students the process of submitting a story idea to a publication. He stressed the importance in being interested in what you write, as well as the value of looking beyond the Internet for sources. “Even if you can get the story online, go out and see someone.”

Ultimately, Mr. Strauss noted, “It’s not necessarily a bad time to go into journalism. It’s just a different time.” He concluded by telling students that if journalism is their passion, they should pursue it, but never do anything for free!

Thank you to Mr. Strauss for taking time to speak with Davidson students and to Ella Strauss for keeping the conversation on track!

Davidson Students Connect with European Internships

When Bettina Lemm ’13 looked for an internship last summer, she discovered an opportunity through Davidson parent Bill Echikson on WildcatLink at the Mundaneum in Mons, Belgium. The Mundeaneum is an archive center founded by a Belgian entrepreneur and a Nobel Peace Prize laureate with the goal of archiving all of the world’s knowledge and making it readily accessible through a collection of documents and note cards.

Bernie

Bettina Lemm ’13 the Bernardus Djonoputro, the Secretary General of the Indonesian Association of Planners.

At the Mundaneum, Bettina taught an English and Social Media class to local teenagers in which the students learned to use social media platforms and express themselves in another language. In addition, Bettina created a blog in which she posted all of the events that Mundaneum and Google collaborated on—these companies formed a partnership so that Google could illustrate its appreciation of culture despite its large size, and the Mundaneum could reach a larger, more global audience. Bettina was initially drawn to this internship because of this collaboration; she wanted an opportunity to enter the world of technology, communication, and data while working within an archive center.

While in Belgium, Bettina was able to meet Bill Echikson, parent of Sam Echikson ’14, who works in the Google offices in Brussels and is responsible for making her internship available to Davidson students. Apart from seeing Mr. Echikson during office hours, he organized a biking trip to the town of Bruges with Bettina and several Yale students also interning in Belgium, invited her over to his home for a barbecue, and even asked her to attend a basketball game with him and his Finnish business partner.

Jaime DyBuncio ’13 shared this image of Schloss Leopoldskron, the palace in which the Salzburg Global Seminar is held.

After her internship at the Mundaneum, Bettina began interning at the Salzburg Global Seminar in Salzburg, Austria, where fellow Davidson alum Jaime DyBuncio ’13 spent this summer. Both Bettina and Jaime worked as program interns, during which time they helped to organize seminars, as well as attended all discussions to engage with participants and speakers. The Global Seminar was established in 1946 with the goal of bringing people together from different cultures and backgrounds to discuss global issues. The current President and CEO of the Salzburg Global Seminar is Davidson alumnus Stephen Salyer ’72, who is responsible for connecting Davidson students with opportunities at the Seminar every year.

Among the highlights of this internship for Bettina and Jaime were living and working in Schloss Leopoldskron, an historic, 300-year-old castle, as well as the chance to live among people from different backgrounds and countries and gain a more global perspective.

If you are interested in learning more about Bettina and Jaime’s experiences at the Mundaneum and Salzburg Global Seminar, they are available by email at bettina.lemm@gmail.com and jaimedybuncio@gmail.com. This year, the Salzburg Global Seminar opportunity is being offered as part of the Davidson Impact Fellowship program; many seniors have applied for the opportunity to pursue this one-year fellowship. The Mundaneum summer internship may be available again this summer – stay tuned to WildcatLink for details.

Thank you again to Bill Echikson and Stephen Salyer ’72 for making these opportunities available to Davidson students.

Jabian Consulting Seeks Intern for New Charlotte Office

P1140449

Will Funderberg ’09 answers questions after the presentation.

On Wednesday evening, Manager Will Funderberg ‘09 and Executive Director Courtney Ramey of Jabian Consulting met with Davidson students to discuss the Atlanta-based strategic management and technology consulting firm. Founded in 2006, Jabian Consulting works with Fortune and mid-market, high-growth clients across multiple industries. Funderberg noted that an intern should expect to work in the Charlotte branch, which opened in September and currently consists of just two employees.

Because of the company’s relatively small size (slightly under 100 employees), an intern can expect to gain experience working with senior-level employees, as well as real-world experience on projects within market offerings. Jabian focuses on six core market offerings: Human Capital Management, Business Strategy, Technology Execution, Technology Optimization, Customer Interaction, and Operational Excellence. Beyond that, the firm emphasizes a no-travel model and investment in the local community. Perhaps it is the combination of these attributes that has led to Jabian’s recognition both locally and nationally as one of the Best Places to Work, Fastest Growing Companies, and for its local community involvement.

P1140448

Davidson Center for Career Development Director Nathan Elton and Jabian Executive Director Courtney Ramery

 After walking students through a pro bono case study involving the Technology Association of Georgia, Funderberg outlined the characteristics the company seeks in an intern. If you are community-oriented, practical, diligent, and comfortable with ambiguity (due to the extremely small staff at the Charlotte office), be sure to submit your resume through WildcatLink before the deadline today, January 23rd at midnight. Jabian will return to Davidson on February 5th for on-campus interviews, which will consist of thirty minutes of behavioral questions, followed by a thirty-minute case interview.

Thank you so much to Will Funderberg and Courtney Ramey for taking time to speak with Davidson students. We look forward to having them back on February 5th!

Students Explore the “Megatrend” of Sustainability with On-Campus Panel

Three experts in sustainability in the government, nonprofit, and business sectors gathered this Friday to form a panel answering students’ questions on careers in sustainability.

Dubbed a “megatrend” by Scott Tew, Executive Director at the Center for Energy Efficiency & Sustainability at Ingersoll Rand, the sustainability movement is opening up new positions in a variety of fields. Mr. Tew spoke about some of the novel ideas that have come out of his company, including Club Car, a golf cart company that is the world’s largest manufacturer of small-wheel, zero-emissions electric vehicles (look for them buzzing around campus!). Ingersoll Rand aims to design products and help customers live more sustainably and reduce their impact on climate change.

Amy Aussieker, Executive Director at Envision Charlotte, was another panelist who, after a variety of career changes, has found herself happily working at a nonprofit that works with the regional economy to promote environmental stewardship. Through four programs on water, air, energy, and waste, Envision Charlotte aims to make Charlotte the most sustainable urban center in the country. By developing electric vehicle programs in the city, developing apps to encourage sustainable behavior, and creating composting programs in restaurants, the organization hopes to reduce the energy use in uptown Charlotte.

Our third panelist was Henry McKoy, businessman and former Assistant Secretary of the NC Department of Commerce. Mr. McKoy currently works at Investment Scientific Equity Partners where sustainability is the bottom line in developing investments. He has even been invited to the White House by President Obama to discuss how sustainable enterprise can fit into the new economy.

During the question and answer section of the discussion, students asked questions on the future of careers in sustainability.  Here are a couple of highlights:

Q: Do you ever feel disconnected from the nature component of your work–from the planet-saving component–when you are in an office all day?

A: No. In Charlotte, with a 40% tree canopy, you can still feel the connection to nature. Working everyday in this environment is a good reminder of the progress that has been made and still can be made.

Q: What are some of the hindrances, or obstacles, to promoting sustainability, particularly in American society?

A: Primarily generational. If the younger employees (the 20-somethings) are inspired to take up a new sustainable practice, they can encourage the higher-ups to do the same. Sometimes it is a matter of finding out what motivates people; is it incentives, power, access to other opportunities? Determining how to energize people to join the movement is one of the key challenges. Elementary school students are a hidden gem! They will take what they have learned about in school and bring these ideas home to convince their parents to recycle, turn off lights, reduce water use when brushing teeth, etc.

Thanks to the above panelists, and especially to Jeff Mittelstadt, Davidson’s Director of Sustainability, for sharing their insight.  Students who are interested in career development opportunities related to sustainability should check out the summer Sustainability Scholars Program and keep an eye on WildcatLink for potential opportunities.
