  1. If you’re interested in a top business role at a prestigious company, then you’ve probably seen the title “Analyst” while doing your research. And while there’s a wide range of roles that fall under that title, they all involve the parsing, arrangement, and presentation of data. Top businesses need data analysis to function and thrive. As former Morgan Stanley CTO Tsvi Gal told the UPenn Wharton Business Journal, “We [may be] in banking, but we live and die on information…Data analytics is the oxygen of Wall Street.” If you want to have a real advantage when applying to roles at banks, tech companies, and everything in between, then you should be learning data science. Here’s a quick look at how—through the help of Emeritus, an education technology company—you can get certified in data science or one of its applications (like machine learning) and finally get the internship or entry-level job you really want. Get Certified—And Actually Trained—With Courses Run By Columbia, Dartmouth, And Other Top Schools Emeritus’ mission is to help people learn—safely and remotely—the skills they need to succeed in STEM and business careers. But they’re not in this alone. Emeritus works with a network of experienced professors, business leaders, and elite institutions to ensure that the certificate programs they offer aren’t just theoretical. In their data science programs, you’ll learn the skills necessary to extract, analyze, and synthesize the data that powers major business decisions. Depending on the specific course or track you select, you’ll learn the concepts and applications of business analytics, data visualization, gamification, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. These are the skills that recruiters at Big Four firms, Silicon Valley giants, and major banks are scanning your resume for. And with a certification from a name-brand institution on there, recruiters will be able to tell you really do possess them. The best part is that most of these courses can be completed in two to three months—essentially, the length of a summer. Whether you’re tackling an internship this summer—or if you had one unfortunately cancel on you—this is the perfect time to get started on the skill set you really need. How Data Science Skills Can Change Your Career But like any good data scientist, you’ll probably need to see the numbers on this. Career site Glassdoor regularly marks Data Scientist as one of their Top 5 Jobs in America, noting a median annual base salary of over six figures ($113,309, to be specific). But whether you start in data science, data analysis, or even a more tech-heavy lane like machine learning, you’ll be building a career that can often lead to a C-level executive position or acceptance to a top MBA or master’s program.

  2. The Culture Club at WayUp strives to foster an inclusive, productive workplace where every team member feels welcomed. The club has three values which are core to its identity: learning and development; diversity, equity, and inclusion; and social responsibility. At least one person from each team at WayUp attends a weekly meeting where they attend a discussion on how the group can organize new, engaging initiatives that make team members feel proud to work at WayUp. Here’s a closer look at how the WayUp Culture Club achieves those goals—and why they’re so important in the first place. Analysts at Gallup continue to report that a staggeringly low percentage of employees in the United States feel engaged with their work (only 31 percent in their most recent publication). This comes as no surprise, especially when you read Deloitte’s report on global human capital trends which cited only 28 percent of executives as saying they understood their organization’s culture. The Culture Club at WayUp addresses this challenging trend by working to ensure that WayUp’s mission, vision, and values are integrated into everything we do. The club is always looking for new ideas and actively invites other team members to join the club or attend a meeting to help think of new initiatives. Team members at WayUp can expect the club to host lively events like an after-work happy hour or lunch-time trivia, but the Culture Club also has a sincere commitment to social responsibility. The club has organized events like a back-to-school drive where team members donated critical supplies to students in need and a coat drive that supplied those in need with some warm clothes during the New York winter. Not only do these programs enrich the communities that WayUp serves, they also enrich the WayUp community. Given recent events concerning racial injustice, the Culture Club has prioritized bringing awareness to some of the critical issues plaguing our country. The team created a comprehensive guide on how to better educate yourself on the topic, and how to then take action in response. Recently, the club hosted a film club and discussed the Netflix documentary 13th. In a virtual, round-table setting, team members had an open and honest discussion on some of the critical themes in this movie which have enveloped our culture over the past few months. These issues affect both WayUp’s team members and the platform’s users, and to shy away from examining them in a deliberate way would be a great disservice to our community. Transitioning to a fully-remote workspace spawned new challenges for the club to address. But with these challenges came new ideas on how to cultivate a community in a virtual space, like using online platforms to host company-wide trivia and bringing in instructors to lead fitness classes over Zoom. The environment may change, but the Culture Club’s mission remains the same, and now, more than ever, their work helps to bring a sense of belonging to WayUp’s team members.

  3. If you’re like most people coming out of school right now—aka 77 percent of Gen Z students and recent grads—then you’re looking for a company that values diversity and inclusion (D&I). But what does that really mean? Is it as simple as joining a diverse team? What else should you be looking for in a company? These are big questions for anyone to be asking, but the team at Thermo Fisher Scientific—a Fortune 200 science company dedicated to making the world healthier, cleaner, and safer—have come up with a few answers. One of the most important is their multiple diverse, global Employee Resource Groups (ERGs). So, What Are Employee Resource Groups? How Are They Different At Thermo Fisher? If you’ve done a corporate internship or been on the job hunt lately, then maybe you’ve heard about ERGs. They exist to provide additional community and support to specific groups and identities at large companies. For example, a company might have a group based around African Heritage identity or one for employees who served in the military. Almost all of these groups put together events like volunteering in the local community and networking sessions, but at Thermo Fisher they take it a step beyond to fully support and foster inclusion amongst all of their colleagues. Their ERGs draw colleagues together around common characteristics and provide a voice of diverse thinking. ERGs positively impact the company’s growth and development, and assist in providing thought leadership for: Recruitment and retention Education and training Professional development Community involvement Support and recognition Business development Activities that support a diverse and inclusive work culture One way they are supported is through active involvement at the C-level. “At Thermo Fisher we have senior-level leaders at our organization who sponsor and help promote the ERGs,” says Cheryl, a Talent Acquisition D&I leader at Thermo Fisher. “They’re a direct line to executives on how to build more diverse teams and more welcoming communities for everyone.” This means when someone has an idea that can help Thermo Fisher be a more inclusive community or build a more diverse team, they can assist and offer their support to make it happen. Perhaps someone in the Women’s ERG knows about Women in STEM groups at colleges that could help bring in more female tech talent. Or maybe someone noticed that a cultural event or holiday was going unrecognized by the company. These ERGs give people a platform to not only share their perspectives, but also to have them be heard and acted on. Finding Your Community, Bringing Your Whole Self To Work The truth about inclusion is that it’s not just a set of policies or practices. It’s about making sure everyone can find community at work so that they feel comfortable enough to be themselves. Besides the obvious benefits for morale and mental health, when people with diverse perspectives feel comfortable bringing their unique ideas to their work, it has a proven, positive impact on the quality of business decision-making. “If someone doesn’t feel a sense of inclusion or belonging they may not bring as much of themselves to work,” Cheryl explains. “And we work hard to build a diverse team because we want their unique perspectives.” These groups, by creating a community for everyone at Thermo Fisher, can bring out all of those positive benefits, both for the employees and the business. That’s also why the groups aren’t limited to just the traditional understanding of diversity, like ethnicity and gender. “Our groups cover a broad spectrum of interests and identities from ethnicity and gender to early talent, sustainability, working parents, and community action,” Cheryl explains. “Our colleagues have formed 10 different ERG groups, with more opportunities to come.” All That, Plus They Can Help Accelerate Your Career At Thermo Fisher, D&I is a team effort. And that effort can mean opportunities for people at all stages of their career to take on new types of challenges. Plus, thanks to the buy-in from leaders at the company, you’ll be supported in balancing the work of your primary role and your assistance in groups like this. That’s why getting involved with ERGs at Thermo Fisher is a win-win. The company benefits from your perspective and action, and you benefit from a more developed network and unique career opportunities. One member of the university recruiting team, Emily, noted that, “interns who have been heavily involved in ERGs during their internship are much more likely to receive full-time offers because of all the connections they made during the summer” One such success story is Sophia, an emerging leader in the company’s IT Development Program. Her involvement with the Asian and Women’s ERGs as an intern led to leadership opportunities in those groups when she joined back with the company full time. “I joined these ERGs as a way to be more engaged and involved in the community,” Sophia says. But when she took on leadership roles in the ERGs, she got way more than just that. “This is different from my day job and it exposes me to other functions, too,” Sophia says. ‘It has also been a great way to get my voice heard and network with executive leaders.” This type of company-wide idea sharing and collaboration isn’t just what makes D&I initiatives work at Thermo Fisher—it’s what drives the whole business.

  4. Why joining a virtual info session can change your career In the midst of a pandemic, typical ways of meeting recruiters and expanding connections through means such as career fairs have been put on hold. Information sessions that students and recent graduates are used to are not happening and finding an internship or a job has been more difficult than ever in recent months. This does not mean that companies aren’t sharing knowledge and opportunities with young talent. Virtual information sessions hosted by company recruiters, universities, or career sites like WayUp’s Lunch and Learn Series, are still connecting young professionals with mentors and career opportunities as well as providing information and knowledge that can change your future. Why Attend An Information Session? Attending an info session first and foremost shows that you are both interested in the company or subject, and are proactive in advancing your career. They also provide valuable insight into the career that you are pursuing. For example, past guests at WayUp’s Lunch and Learn series included: Michael Seibel co-founder of Twitch and current CEO at Y Combinator, Cathy Polinsky, CTO at Stitch Fix, and Dan Rosensweig, CEO of Chegg. At the top of their fields, these presenters and those to come next can share advice to help advance your current career path and expose you to a different opportunity you were not aware of before. Information sessions with specific companies reveal what recruiters in a certain field are looking for in qualified candidates, and what roles are currently available. Most of the time, the company hosting the session will offer interviews to the attendees of the session! Even if an interview is not guaranteed after a session, you now have the knowledge and insight to bring to your future job application, use it as an interview talking point, or create networking opportunities through digital connections. This is especially important for recent graduates who are looking for that perfect entry-level position. How Can I Prepare? Simply researching the company, and the individual speaking is the best way to get the most out of a virtual info session. You may not be able to speak one on one with the presenter since it is a large video conference, but being able to make connections between your research and the presentation is a great strategy. Come with a list of questions for a potential Q&A or just to even keep track of personally for potential future interactions or job applications. What About After? If a Q&A session does happen, be sure to ask well-thought-out questions. A good question shows that you were engaged throughout the presentation and can help you to stand out for any future opportunities at the company. Share your findings from the session on social media! Posting about the session and tagging the company or speaker, can help you stand out and improve your professional network. Lastly, remember to follow-up! Chances are the leaders volunteering to put on info sessions are open to connecting with young talent. Use the notes that you took during the session to find what really grabbed your attention and start a conversation! Sending a follow-up email with questions about what interested you in the presentation or their career path can be a great way to build a new connection and grow your network. Where Can I Find Them? Tons of companies are hosting information sessions over the next few months! We’ll be keeping the list below updated with all the different sessions hosted by WayUp—so be sure to check back here to see them all and apply!

  5. When you’re starting a career, a STEM degree is a valuable thing to have. Recruiters from all types of industries and universities are interested in people like you. But it’s important to ask more than just, “What can I do?” The real question is, “What should I do?” That question can have many meanings: Which skills should I be building early in my career? What kinds of people should I surround myself with? And, perhaps most importantly, what kind of impact can I have on the world around me? To answer those questions—and many more—here are five reasons you should start your STEM career as a teacher at Success Academy. 1. You have a passion for science or math—and for explaining (aka teaching) them to others. For STEM majors, the world is different. Science makes sense to you. Math isn’t a mystery. And as you might remember from college or even high school, explaining these concepts to others is a rare talent: one that you may possess. As one science teacher-turned-Assistant Principal at Success Academy, Kate noted, explaining science to other people can be as intellectually engaging as learning it yourself. “[While I was teaching at Success Academy], I took a biochem class at NYU because it was the one class missing for medical school, but when I was taking the class, I was constantly thinking to myself, ‘How would I teach this concept to my scholars? How would I break it down, how I would incorporate it into the lesson?’” she says. That’s when she knew her passion for science education was something she should consider for the long term. It turns out individuals who are passionate about learning STEM might actually be perfect for teaching it. 2. You want to make an immediate impact on the world around you. “The mission is a huge draw,” Kate says. “Educational equality and opportunity are so important. Immersing yourself in something that is so meaningful makes you more than a teacher. You’re also an advocate for children and trying to change the future for these kids.” And it’s true. Whether you’re a science teacher or an Assistant Principal like Kate, you’re working to democratize access to education for children in NYC, many of whom live in neighborhoods where schools are abysmally underperforming. As trained scientists, mathematicians, and engineers, you know that some of the most important jobs in the world often require a lifelong dedication to science, one that starts in elementary school. This is something Danae, another science teacher-turned-school leader at Success Academy, tells us. “When I was a kid, I only enjoyed science when I had an exceptionally good teacher,” she says. “The scholars at SA have science every day starting in Kindergarten and they LOVE science. We have tons of kids whose favorite subject is science and that’s pretty unique. It makes it really satisfying to teach here. The math is also really rigorous and the kids are great at it—tons of kids love it because it’s taught in a way that is so intellectually engaging.” As a STEM teacher, you can not only provide children with educational opportunities, but set them up to make their own impact on the world in the future. 3. You want to grow as a communicator and a professional. No matter what your STEM career ends up being, folks with proven soft skills perform better on the job market, both for individual contributor and management roles. There are few better ways to sharpen your communication skills than teaching—and getting feedback from your school leaders. “I was lucky to be placed in the classroom with a wonderful lead teacher,” Kate says. “She was an amazing person to learn from—she modeled at such a high level and she was really invested in developing me.” This level of attentive training and constant feedback not only sharpens your teaching skills, but makes you an effective communicator to both children and adults. It was this same rigorous communication training that propelled Kate, Danae, and so many other Success Academy teachers into leadership roles at the organization. 4. You want to get involved in more than just a job. As a once (or current) stellar student, you know that teachers aren’t just teachers. They’re leaders, mentors, part-time parents, and coaches. One example of this was Travis. He was a high school biology teacher at a Success Academy school in Manhattan who finds opportunities to build relationships. “I can’t get over how talented they are in so many different areas,” he said. “I recently got to watch them perform In The Heights, and was blown away by how well Genesis, who’s also a great student, can sing. I was so proud of her watching her up on stage.” Not only does he connect with students outside the classroom through activities like shooting hoops and chaperoning field trips, but he uses those connections to enhance their classroom experience. “I know many of my students straighten their hair, so I explained that the reason straightening irons work is because when proteins get hot, they denature,” Travis says. “That got them hooked, and then keeping them engaged throughout the rest of the lesson was easy.” At Success Academy, being more than just a teacher gives you an opportunity to make invaluable personal connections—and to become a better professional while you’re at it. 5. You want to become a manager and a leader. Many people think of STEM careers as ones of individual work, but some of the best jobs in STEM are leadership roles. And like many critical skills, leadership is learned by experience. If you aim to be a manager, executive, or chief of something, getting leadership experience as soon as possible is an excellent career move. Luckily, Success Academy offers the opportunity to do just that. In addition to the rigorous formal training provided to teachers, leaders at Success Academy are constantly grooming the next generation of content leaders, principals, and education policy pioneers. “When I said I wanted to be an Assistant Principal, my manager worked with me to put together a plan where I would be focused on coaching and developing teachers at my school and at one other Brooklyn school,” Kate says. “I found out this April that I was promoted to Assistant Principal, so I am very excited to be doing that next year.” Danae also made serious strides in leadership roles, being quickly promoted to a content leadership role, then an Assistant Principal role, and finally into a senior leadership position. And she and Kate are not alone in their swift advancement. At a rapidly growing organization like Success Academy, the opportunities for you—and the scholars—are truly endless.

  6. Everyone has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The physical and financial health of millions of people has been threatened by this unprecedented disruption. Seeing this, L’Oréal immediately leveraged its status as a global beauty tech giant to help the communities it serves—and beyond—through a response effort focused around three pillars: Ensuring the health and wellbeing of L’Oréal employees Galvanizing the company to contribute to the greater good Taking this time to transform the way L’Oréal works While the company was quick to enact protective measures for its employees, like work-from-home policies and stringent cleanliness procedures for manufacturing environments, some of the most important work was done to protect communities outside the company. 1. Looking Beyond The Beauty Community—And Galvanizing Employees To Do The Same When you’re a global manufacturing and supply chain leader, you have the power to mobilize quickly to make impact when faced with a pressing need. Immediately after the pandemic began, L’Oréal facilities around the world began creating and packaging hand sanitizer for essential workers, healthcare facilities, and care homes. As a part of their global COVID-19 relief efforts, L’Oréal donated $250,000 to Feeding America, which helps combat food insecurity caused by poverty, a problem which has grown since the start of the pandemic. In Europe, the L’Oréal foundation donated one million euros to its partner non-profit organizations fighting similar forms of insecurity across the Atlantic. As the company outlined in its official COVID-19 response, “These establishments are our first line of defense against coronavirus and are committed to protecting us and curbing the epidemic every day.” But it’s not just the corporation that’s helping out—employees are mobilizing as well. One of the pillars of the company’s pandemic response is to “galvanize the company to contribute to the greater good.” In that spirit, the company is matching the donations of their employees to Feeding America, dollar for dollar, up to $25,000. 2. Supporting Their Partners & Small Businesses Beauty for all—one of the company’s core philosophies—means looking beyond the bounds of their business to support those in need. In addition to the public health impacts of the pandemic, many in the beauty community were also suffering from economic disruption. Stylists, salons, suppliers, and small businesses of many kinds are essential parts of the industry—and L’Oréal made sure to provide relief to them. Through donations, fundraising, and billing relief efforts, L’Oréal is jumping into action to help these small, vibrant businesses make it through. Partnering with organizations like the Professional Beauty Association, L’Oréal is helping to raise money for industry professionals who need assistance during the lockdown. Plus, for small businesses unable to get customers in the door, L’Oréal is delaying or freezing payments for their products. 3. Leading A Tech Transformation to Connect with Consumers – And Employees COVID-19 forced many companies to quickly undergo technological transformations to adapt to an entirely remote working world, but L’Oréal took this as an opportunity to make industry-leading innovations. In a time when many of us can’t be physically with our friends, families, and communities, L’Oréal’s teams also stepped up to the plate to use technology to spread happiness. Lisa Price, the founder of one of L’Oréal’s beloved brands, Carol’s Daughter, gave a virtual commencement speech to honor the class of 2020. Using the power of TikTok, multiple brands under the L’Oreal umbrella launched social gifting programs to build a sense of support during these unprecedented times. A partnership with Snap Camera was launched with eight of L’Oreal’s Brand to create AR lenses for platforms like Skype, Youtube, and Twitch. Conference calls have never been more glamorous! The teams behind all these innovations went through a tech transformation of their own as many employees transitioned to working fully at home. Even while not being able to be physically together, employees quickly mobilized to create ways to stay more connected than ever. The USA Head of Talent Acquisition, Sumita Banerjee, started teaching virtual Zumba classes for both employees and their families to participate, milestones like birthdays were celebrated with virtual fêtes, and beloved pets filled in for missed office mates. For members of the L’Oréal team, it’ll never be easier (or safer) to connect with their peers —pandemic or not. Innovating For Good Is Just Part Of The L’Oréal Culture “We at L’Oréal USA feel a deep responsibility to do our part to help address this crisis in the many communities in which we live and work,” L’Oréal USA CEO Stéphane Rinderknech said. And while the COVID-19 crisis is new, this type of innovative response for the betterment of society is standard practice for L’Oréal. Whether it’s technological innovations for sustainability or crafting diverse communities at work, the beauty technology giant has long considered its business an avenue for positive change.

  8. For students, summer is a time of relaxation and reflection. It’s also a great opportunity to build on their education with experiences they may not have had time for during the school year. For many, this experience is provided by a summer internship, but that’s not the only way. Here are a few strategies students and new grads are using to build up their resumes and create some talking points for future interviews. 1. Volunteer Community service is as important as ever and can easily showcase your commitment to both personal and community growth. In the midst of COVID-19, families who have never been in need are seeking support. Volunteering at your local food bank or meal delivery service can make a huge impact on your community and resume. Check out volunteer apps like Deed for easy ways to get involved. If an office or professional environment is a must, look toward non-profits, health care organizations, or political campaigns. In many instances, these volunteer opportunities provide the same experiences as paid internships. 2. Become A Virtual Tutor This summer, students from elementary school all the way through college are looking to have a safe and productive summer. A great way to help make this possible for them, while also being productive and safe yourself, is to apply to remote tutoring positions with organizations like Varsity Tutors or Care.com. There’s a great social impact to tutoring, too: You’ll help to prepare this generation of students for the future. Plus, tutoring can provide you with professional development opportunities, a flexible schedule, and a summer income. 3. Contribute To Positive Change College students around the world are taking the summer to educate themselves on what is important to them or to learn a new perspective that they can share with their community. Creating grassroots fundraisers and book clubs are great ways for students to raise awareness and money for causes they care about. Students can also tap into larger movements across the globe through websites like DoSomething.org and Change.org and others which help to mobilize young people in the fight for equal rights. 4. Improve Yourself With Online Courses Summer courses are a great way to get ahead for the upcoming semester, work on what you know needs improvement, or expand your future career. Online summer courses are a great option to improve yourself while classes are not being held in person or internships have been canceled. Online learning partners like Pathstream, Emeritus, or Springboard offer certificate classes that prepare students for a career in a high-demand digital environment. This is a great opportunity to stand out while adding to your resume and skills! 5. Start A Side Hustle And Write About It On LinkedIn No matter what you choose, showing an eagerness to gain transferable skills and achieve your financial goals outside of traditional office work are great ways to demonstrate your drive to employers. If you do not have an internship this summer, then create your own career-growing, wallet-fattening opportunity! Social media makes it easy for students to leverage their networks to expand their online presence. House-sitting, lawn mowing, and selling old clothes or textbooks you no longer need are all great ways to start. Be creative! Documenting your progress for your network with posts and images keeps you in the front of their minds if new opportunities arise. You can also find new connections to help grow your side hustle!

  9. Why WayUp? I joined WayUp as a Recruiting Operations Associate (ROA) in September 2019. Before joining WayUp I graduated from Quinnipiac University (Go Bobcats!). I remember how nervous, stressed, and anxious I was about finding my first job out of college. I knew I wanted to be in the recruiting industry and applied to over 50 jobs—most of which I never even heard back from. Then I came across WayUp and saw that the company had a 24-hour response rate for all applicants, free snacks, and Weekly Catered Lunches. What more could I have asked for? At the time I didn’t know I would fall in love with the company for different reasons. Here are just a few of the highlights of a day in the life of an ROA at WayUp. Typical Day As An ROA What is a typical day like for an ROA? There are a lot of daily responsibilities for ROAs but most days consist of conducting phone screens—which is just another way of saying “phone interview”—with students and recent graduates who have applied for jobs and internships on the WayUp platform. I get to learn about candidates’ accomplishments and potentially help them find their first job out of college! If you’ve ever applied to a job through our platform and qualified for a phone screen within 24 hours, you spoke to someone at WayUp. WayUp ROAs are the people on the other end of the phone who help make your interview experience enjoyable, efficient, and thoughtful. “I work closely with employers to find them diverse, qualified candidates to meet their hiring goals. Through effective communication and weekly meetings, we are able to find new ways to make the hiring process easier and more efficient for candidates.” Melissa Galarza, ROA at WayUp Each ROA sources, screens, and coaches candidates through their phone screens while creating a great user experience! One of my favorite parts of being a ROA is interacting with candidates every day. I love helping candidates find their dream jobs, especially when they send an email telling me that they got the job! “WayUp is a dream come true for job applicants. The site is user-friendly and very easy to use. What’s even better is that as the process moves forward, someone from WayUp is helping you every step of the way. I’d say I will keep using it, but I got the job.” Michael, Hired at Success Academy through WayUp Creative Scheduling One of the biggest perks of being a ROA is creating your own schedule. Before COVID-19 each ROA worked two days from home and three days in the office while picking the hours they wanted to work each week. Typically, the two days working from home would be a 1 PM-10 PM shift. O “This flexible schedule not only allows ROAs to work nontraditional hours, improving their work-life balance, but also gives candidates across the country the chance to interview at their own convenience. Given that diverse candidates are more likely to schedule phone screens after regular business hours, it’s really a win-win situation for us and the candidates we are trying to get hired!” Danielle, Recruitment Operations Manager at WayUp Personally, creative scheduling has not only improved my time management skills but has also provided me a strong work-life balance. This has been a consistent theme for me and across the board for all of WayUp’s ROAs. Some members of the ROA team are in graduate school and choose to work the afternoon shift, two days a week. “I love the flexible 40-hour schedule. Some weeks I work half days to be able to complete my work on top of school work. This scheduling really helps me feel like I’m still part of the team.” Fran, Recruitment Operations Associate at WayUp Remote Work At WayUp, the transition due to COVID-19 to working remotely was smooth and efficient. For our team, we were already accustomed to working from home two days a week because of our creative scheduling initiative. Compared to my friends and family, I already had experience using Zoom and managing my time while working from home which eased my nerves about making the uncertain transition to working from home full time. Due to COVID-19, more and more companies are looking for alternative ways to onboard new employees and implement remote work. “I am proud to say that WayUp has been innovative and flexible with onboarding new employees by creating additional training resources and culture initiatives to make sure we feel welcome, part of the team, and prepared for our job responsibilities. WayUp has been a great place to start my career, communication during the pandemic has been effective and constant. I am also getting a lot of great opportunities to grow my skills in areas like marketing and data science, despite not being in a traditional office setting!” Gabe, Started as an ROA during the pandemic Tips For Remote Work If you’re considering a role as an ROA (or any other remote role) right now, here are some tips that have helped me work successfully from home. Even though you might lose track of which day it is (because they all feel the same!), it is important to create a schedule. Here are some things I have learned from working remotely: Create a daily routine Time is valuable so use it wisely by creating a schedule Have a clean work area Don’t forget to take a lunch break Check in daily with your team As we navigate these unfamiliar times, it is important to have a strong company culture, especially one that is rooted in transparency. Transparency is one of WayUp’s key values and it is evident in the way we respond to every applicant, as well as in our internal processes. WayUp is a company with dynamic, energetic and creative employees. I value the relationships I have with my colleagues at WayUp and have made many new friends. Whether we are in person bonding over weekly lunches, participating in a team outing on a dinner cruise, or catching up over Zoom. When I started at WayUp nearly a year ago I was impressed by the perks like cold-brew on tap, weekly catered lunches, new friends, and a brand new office space. However, as time has gone on and the world has changed dramatically, I have found myself appreciating my role and the company in a deeper way. The team spirit during our daily team Zoom calls has helped me see new perspectives. Interacting with candidates and supporting them during these uncharted times is meaningful and rewarding. As each day passes, I am reminded that no two days are alike. I am proud that WayUp has adapted quickly to our changing times, while never losing sight of our integrity which is what makes WayUp so special. Want to start—or grow—your career as an ROA?

  11. For Saarem, choosing a career wasn’t going to be easy. As a high-performing finance major, he heard a lot about the different options for ​his career. However, coming from a family of medical professionals, helping people save lives and advance science were basic family values. And as a part of his Muslim upbringing, Saarem says, it’s natural for him to want to help the people around him. So, how could he find a finance career that would utilize his talents and make a positive impact on the world? The Finance Leadership Development Program at Thermo Fisher—a Fortune 200 science company dedicated to making the world healthier, cleaner, and safer—offered him an opportunity to do just that. Rotating Through Finance Career Paths—And Making A Difference, Even In The Fight Against COVID-19 Thermo Fisher’s program allowed Saarem to rotate throughout various business areas, roles, and even offices at the company. This might seem like a lot of change, but it was exactly what he was looking for. “What better way to learn what you want to do than a rotational program? You get four six-month rotations in completely different areas of finance,” Saarem says. Throughout his rotations he worked in Franklin, MA; Pittsburgh, PA; and at the company’s headquarters in Waltham, MA. His first role was in financial planning and analysis (more commonly known as FP&A) on a site that produced chemical analysis tools. Even in this manufacturing-based role, he could still see the good he was doing. “Everything at Thermo Fisher goes back to the mission: to enable our customers to make the world healthier, cleaner, and safer,” Saarem says. “One of the business units at my first rotation produced air quality measurement tools, which definitely contribute to those goals.” As the rotations advanced, so did his skillset–and his ability to do contribute to enabling a better world. A rotation with a team in Pittsburgh starting in February of this year suddenly put him on the frontlines of the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic: Saarem’s new team was responsible for the sale and supply chain of personal protective equipment (PPE) for nurses, doctors, and other front-line personnel. “For a lot of FLDPs at other companies, you just learn from a process doc and follow instructions,” Saarem says. “When COVID-19 hit, I was given the responsibilities of a senior analyst.” The impact of his work had never been clearer. “Finance, a lot of the time people think it’s only about metrics. But understanding that you’re making a difference and helping customers react to a pandemic is extremely fulfilling. Even if I’m working on a financial file, I know that down the road that it’ll help someone like a doctor, or patient on a ventilator, or a family who’s worried about their loved ones,” he says. Moving Up In His Career, Moving Forward With His Mission The beauty of a Leadership Development Program at Thermo Fisher is that you can do well in your career while doing good in the world around you. The very same responsibilities that afforded Saarem the opportunity to make a social impact also allowed him to work with senior leaders, learn new skills, and make an impact for the business. No matter the rotation, learning was always a part of the assignment. “I’m a student of knowledge. This rotational program has really done that for me,” he says. “If you have a hunger for knowledge, then you’re definitely going to be satisfied here. The more you learn, the more you realize there is to learn.” Saarem and his colleagues making “Science Care Packages” for a local middle school. And more than just learning, Saarem’s unique work on financial modeling helped him land a new type of role after his last rotation. He’ll be returning to his first office, where his manager will lead a team that gives company leaders more visibility into FP&A. But even though the program is over, Saarem still expects to grow at Thermo Fisher. “The great management is why I’m going to the Franklin office,” Saarem says. “My manager did an awesome job of managing talent and developing talent. She would give me challenging work, but she’d guide me or push me enough that I could learn how to do things on my own and produce results.” And whether those results were driving the bottom line forward—or the mission—Saarem could be confident in his career choice.

  13. Some internships are memorable because of the friends you make. Others are important for your career because of the skills you learned or the connections you made. And sometimes you get to do work that really makes a difference at the company—and in the world. Luckily for Justine—an intern-turned-employee at PayPal—she got to make memories doing all of the above in her summer internship on the business operations team. We spoke to her about her experience at the global payments technology leader. Here are some highlights. #1: Creating A New Emoji For Venmo The stuff of tech internship dreams, Justine and her fellow interns were all invited to participate in an “Emoji Hack” for Venmo—a nearly ubiquitous payment app that’s part of the PayPal family. Designed for interns of all functions, the hack teams were made up of PayPal interns from across various teams. “They made it so that anyone, regardless of tech or creative experience, could participate,” she explains. Justine and her winning Emoji Hack team. Can you spot the trophies?Not only was this an incredibly cool opportunity for Justine and her peers—but it was a great example of how innovative tech companies leverage teams with diverse backgrounds and functions to produce game-changing work. The teams came up with so many emojis that, even though Justine and her team won, plenty of the ideas ended up being valuable in the long run. “We worked on the red cup emoji, which ended up winning the hack,” Justine says. “It just went live the other week, so now I can send it to my friends, which is really satisfying.” #2: Creating An Innovation Tournament—And Coaching The Winning Team An innovation tournament is exactly what it sounds like. Teams from around the world at PayPal compete to pitch different ideas that could change one of the PayPal products—and maybe even the world. The crazy part about this event is that the idea for it actually came out of another, earlier event, which Justine also won: the PayPal Intern Summit. “Toward the end of the summer, the Director of Innovation put together an Intern Summit to work on projects, development, and brainstorm,” Justine explains. “The topic was: ‘How do we increase employee engagement at PayPal?’ We broke out into small teams and came up with ideas.” Justine and her team for the global business case competition that grew from her winning idea.Her idea was a global business case competition to drive both innovation and employee engagement at the company, aka the Innovation Tournament. The director in charge of the Intern Summit liked the idea so much that he helped make it a reality. Even though most of the tournament occurred when Justine was back at school, she still got to participate in a meaningful way when she returned. “It was so cool to know that an idea I had when I was an intern became a reality at this massive company,” she says. “When I rejoined PayPal full time in September, I was able to become an advisor to the team that won. We’re now working on making that idea a reality, too.” #3: Redesigning The Newsletter For A Multibillion-Dollar Company Of course, it’s not all field day–esque events like hackathons and tournaments. Justine’s actual work was one of her favorite aspects of the internship. As a member of the operations team, she was tasked with handling some critical aspects of the company’s internal communications. One of her favorite projects was redesigning the company newsletter. “We made it easier to read, improved the quality of information, and increased engagement,” she says. If you’ve never worked at a large corporation before, you might not know how big of a deal something like this is. These newsletters are essential sources of information read by thousands of people around the world. They create a sense of community and bring attention to important initiatives like volunteer efforts and events (like the Emoji Hack and Innovation Tournament). And Justine was able to make significant improvements to PayPal’s—all while working as a summer intern. Internships Are Proving Grounds For Members Of The PayPal Team What Justine—and so many of her peers in the program—realized was that the PayPal internship program wasn’t just a funnel for coffee runs and lectures. It was an opportunity to take on high-impact work in an organization full of people who loved to teach and test new talent. “Now, the projects are more challenging, but the people and the culture are the same,” she says. “And that’s what I loved about PayPal in the first place.” Want to make your own ✅ on a global technology company?

  14. According to various medical experts, one of the most important steps to reopening the world is being able to track the spread of the coronavirus. The best method for doing this is called contact tracing. Essentially, it requires the careful investigation of social contact made by people who test positive for the virus. That’s where you can help save lives. We spoke to the team at MAXIMUS, a company that helps the government fulfill essential services like this one, about how you could start your professional life performing an essential public service—and how your career could go anywhere from there. What Is Contact Tracing? Contact tracing is the process of tracking the virus’ potential spread by looking at a person’s recent social contact. It all starts with a positive test for the coronavirus. “Someone will get a positive test result, and a case investigator will have a very extensive interview with the subject. Usually that person is an epidemiologist,” Chris Dabek, a MAXIMUS leader running the contact tracing efforts explains. “They try to figure out everyone with whom they’ve come in contact to determine who could have been exposed.” After that, those contacts are transferred to the teams at MAXIMUS so they can reach out to those folks and conduct similar interviews. This allows investigators and public health officials to create a map for the potential spread of the virus and test anyone who may have been exposed. Megan, another member of the MAXIMUS team who joined a year ago after graduating with a public health and political science degree, says the importance of these efforts can’t be overstated. “This really helps the whole world. Our government partners need to know where the virus is coming from so they can stop the spread,” Megan explains. “That’s why the CDC is recommending so many contact tracers. These jobs can save lives.” How You Can Become A Contact Tracer—And Help Stop The Coronavirus In Its Tracks If you’re worried that you’re not qualified for a job like this, don’t be. The baseline skills are hallmarks of most STEM and liberal arts educations: curiosity, thoroughness, and the ability to identify key information. Plus, MAXIMUS will provide plenty of training to prepare you. “We’re going to train everyone on the process and the tools they’re going to use,” Chris says. “What we’re really going to need is a sense of curiosity and great interrogative skills. You need to be good at questioning people.” While it sounds straightforward to go through questions about social contact, the best contact tracers are those who know when it’s time to probe the subject for more information. “What we’ve found with contact tracing is that people tend to give short answers. Don’t just ask: ‘Have you come in contact with anyone?’ Tell them to walk you through their day. People forget important details or never realize that they are important. Little interactions can count as close contact,” he explains. It’s an exciting, challenging job, and, of course, the potential benefits for public health and safety are massive. Lives will be saved and states can start to safely reopen. Another distinct benefit: the work is not only high-impact, but completely safe. “It’s a flexible working arrangement,” Chris says. “We’re hiring the way everyone is hiring right now: for people working from home.” Contact Tracing Is Just The Beginning: Start A Career With A Huge Social Impact Graduating at a time of crisis can be challenging. Fewer companies are hiring and plans you previously made may not be able to come to fruition. But a crisis can also be a call to action. That’s the case for Megan, Chris, and many of the other employees at MAXIMUS. “When I graduated from college, the first major thing that occurred was 9/11,” Chris tells us. “It made me refocus and rethink where I was going in my career. I knew then that I wanted to make a difference.” Many join the team at MAXIMUS because it’s an opportunity to combine their desire to do good with their business backgrounds. “I knew that I wanted to make a difference. I wanted to be in public health and I wanted to help the government, but I was curious about the private sector, too,” Megan says. “This is an amazing opportunity to learn about both.” “To play a role in how states come through this and come to a new sense of normalcy is what’s at stake here,” Chris says. “After that, the opportunities are pretty much endless.” For example, on one of his previous projects with the company—the rollout of the Affordable Care Act—Chris found that many of the people he hired grew into leadership and specialist roles that no had foreseen at the beginning of the project. Finding that kind of flexibility and room for a growth at a top employer is extremely valuable at the beginning of your career—crisis or not—and a career at MAXIMUS offers that and so much more.
