Attaining Career Goals through Publication: The Art of the Op Ed

For Juniors, Seniors, Grad Students
Monday, October 24th, 5:00-6:30PM
Location: The Wasserman Center, Presentation Room B

The ability to synthesize one’s thoughts and craft a 600-word op-ed for a periodical or blog will do much to advance your career or gain admission to a top graduate school.  An impressive list of publications will separate you from the masses of other qualified candidates for a job or grad school admissions. 

This program will feature how to determine which topic to write about, how to structure the op-ed, and when to submit.  There will also be an emphasis on establishing relationships that ensure that op-eds from members of the NYU community will be published.
Our guest speaker, Jonathan Yates, has had hundreds of op-eds appear under his byline in Newsweek, The Washington Post and other periodicals and websites. He has worked as Press Secretary for a Member of Congress and Speechwriter for a major trade association. He has degrees from Harvard University, The Johns Hopkins University and Georgetown University Law Center.
