Global Career Night 2021

February 24 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Hear from a virtual panel of phenomenal UNC alumni in globally focused careers! Panelists represent a variety of career options: government, private industry, NGOs, and more. They will share their professional journeys from studying (like you!) at UNC, through the career searches, networking, and life choices that led them to their current roles. In the Q&A, panelists will take your questions on everything from advice on the job hunt to sustainable career growth over the years. Wherever you are in your UNC experience, this panel is perfect for you — from first years just starting to explore their interests, to seniors scrolling Handshake and attending job fairs.

Please RSVP to access the virtual event details.

Headshot of Will Jarvis.

Will Jarvis ’16

Will Jarvis is a technologist in his mid-twenties currently located in the RTP region of North Carolina. He works on building startups, and trying to develop the developed world. He currently runs marketing and operations for the machine learning startup Tanjo. He explores Narratives about how the world is better than it has been in the past, the ways in which it is worse, and how to make a definite, more positive future possible, and he is working on making science more efficient at First Flight Research. He likes to work on weird projects, that have a good chance of making a large impact. He’s often talking, reading, or writing on: effective altruism, public choice economics, finance, life extension, social science, existential risks, and cryonics. He also organizes the RTP Slate Star Codex meetup every month. He’s married to the beautiful and talented Abby Ward. He graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill. For fun, he gets into all kinds of weird fitness events and challenges. To reach him, send me a DM on Twitter, or shoot him an email at willdjarvis at gmail.

Co-sponsored by the UNC College of Arts & Sciences, African Studies Center, Carolina Asia Center, Center for European Studies, Center for Middle East and Islamic Studies, Center for Slavic, Eurasian and East European Studies, Institute for the Study of the Americas, and UNC Global.
