So, What's Next? Transitioning from Harvard to the Job Market Photo

​​​​​How do you strategically plan your career, decide on roles, and prepare for transitions? Join DJ Patil, investor, entrepreneur, former US Chief Data Officer (Obama Administration) and Technology and Public Purpose (TAPP) Non-Resident Fellow at the Belfer Center, as he walks you through a process he has used with hundreds of people including many in top government positions. In fact, it's a process he's gone through many times over himself as he's transitioned between different sized companies and government.

Picking your next step after graduate school can be difficult, but DJ's session will help you feel more at ease as you learn the art of smooth career transitions and strategic career planning.

This is a hybrid event. The event will be followed by a networking session with light refreshments from 3:00-3:30PM in Malkin Penthouse. RSVP is required.​
