A Message From Our Director

Thanks for letting us show up in your inbox on a Tuesday 😉 We’re trying to catch you before you go on break; we know there’s a lot going on right now, so we’ll keep this brief (and in list form!)

#1 If there’s recruiting you want to be doing with us in early 2024, we’ve got a lot of “Save the Dates” at the bottom of this email.

#2 What do you think of this newsletter? Take 20 seconds and let us know (pretty please) – it’ll inform how we shape next year’s posts. Click here and share your thoughts!

#3. In this month’s blog post, Vibha interviews JHU students and asks them why (or why not) they accepted job offersRead that here.

Happy Holidays! Take care of yourself 🙂
