Pattern Recognition: What Employers Are Looking For in a Competitive Environment


Thursday, April 25, 2013 (All day)

Join Dean Ernest J. Wilson III and three leading experts, Kate Flint, Provost Professor of English and Art History, KC Cole, professor of Journalism, and Nicholas Weller, Assistant Professor of Political Science and International Relations, for a discussion on connecting the dots and recognizing patterns in different fields. As far-reaching and deep-seated technological, demographic, political and economic changes render analysis and action more complex and seemingly difficult, the interest in this topic has grown across multiple professions and disciplines. How do we find signposts in a radically changing environment? This core skill is emerging in all industries and is becoming sought after by senior executives in companies and non-profits as they seek high-performing employees — find out what it is and how you can be prepared as you enter the work force.

Lunch will be provided.
