One piece of advice you'd give to graduate students:

Access all of the resources provided to you by your program and NYU!  Connect with your faculty, peers, and different offices across campus.  Join school-wide clubs and organizations.  Reach out to the Wasserman Center for Career Development to discuss your career goals, pathways, and aspirations.  You also have a lot of resources available to you as an alumni, so remember to explore those options as well once you graduate.
