Fostering Creativity and Innovation in a Remote Workspace

In this time of change and challenge, we often find the need to simply maintain, to not stretch ourselves. This is the first step in a change process, and an understandable one in this time. As we continue however, the need for innovation and creativity becomes increasingly clear. We need to think of new ways to work through processes, to collaborate, to connect. The methods that were used in the initial months of remote work for some may be improvable now with our increased understanding of our changing work environment. This workshop will unpack routines we are currently in, and address strategies for getting “unstuck”, thinking creatively, and innovating within our work environment. Creativity and Innovation will also be the theme for the February LinkedIn Learning Challenge.

Workday - Student Hiring

Sessions are designed for supervisors and will review the process for creating a student job requisition and hiring student employees.

The Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard Information Session

Are you a graduating senior looking for a full-time work opportunity in biomedicine? Come join us to learn more about Research Associate opportunities at the Broad Institute!

Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard was launched in 2004 to improve human health by using genomics to advance our understanding of the biology and treatment of human disease, and to help lay the groundwork for a new generation of therapies.

The institute was founded to seize the opportunity that arose from the Human Genome Project -- the international effort that successfully deciphered the entire human genetic code. Despite that accomplishment, scientists knew they still lacked a clear understanding of the genetic basis of disease, and how to translate that understanding into more effective prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.

This event will take place via Zoom. For inquiries about the accessibility of this event or to request any accommodations, please contact the Career Development Center Team at cdc@mtholyoke.edu. Please make accommodation requests no later than Wednesday, January 27th to give implementation time, however, in all situations, a good faith effort will be made to provide accommodations up until the time of the event.
