On January 5, 2012, the annual BMC/HC career networking event was held at Ligne Roset in Boston. This year, there were 34 attendees, which included 24 BMC alumnae and students. Our host was Rick Grossman, HC’66, owner of the beautiful modern furniture store Ligne Roset. BMC alumnae attending represented a range of career fields, including law, consulting, high tech, and higher education. One change in this year’s event was a large increase in the number of current students attending. This event is held during the first week in January each year, scheduled by the bi-college Career Development Office to coincide with Boston Recruiting Day for current students.
We were delighted to have the opportunity to meet Dr. John Tuton, BMC Ph.D. 1982. Dr. Tuton is the new Associate Director for Alumnae Career Counseling in the BMC Career Development Office. John Tuton has over 30 years experience as an organizational psychologist, executive coach and career consultant. Since 2001, he has managed an independent practice based in Philadelphia, PA, providing a comprehensive range of services in the areas of executive assessment, performance management, career coaching and individual and team development programs and workshops. He specializes in helping alumnae with all aspects of their job searches and is available for phone consultations to review resumes and provide other career advice. There is no charge for his services, which are available to all alumnae. To contact Dr. Tuton, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have not attended this event, plan to come next year. It’s a great opportunity to meet a diverse group of alumnae and students, and we always enjoy sharing conversations and networking. Whether you are seeking a position, have a position to publicize, or simply want to meet a great group of alumnae and students, come to Network Boston.
The coordinators of the event were Alice Diamond, BMC MA 1977 and BMC Club of Boston Career Development Representative, Rainey Tisdale and Kurt James, HC Career Development Representatives.
