  • Use Twitter to build a professional network of helpful, like-minded people.

New York Times Symposium on College Admissions and Preparation

New York Times Symposium on College Admissions and Preparation

  • The Times Center

nytEducation's annual college admissions symposium provides a comprehensive overview of this important subject with insights from current and former admissions professionals from colleges and universities around the country.

Designed to bring a wealth of information and resources directly to students and their families, this one-day event at The Times Center will cover a wide range of topics, from crafting a compelling application and personal statement to ways to succeed once you’re on campus. Following a full day of panels, our experts will be available to take individual questions during a special Q&A session.

Increasingly, a student’s presence on social media can factor into a college’s overall admissions decision. Sometimes this can be useful – after all a life’s rich tapestry that is hard to portray in 500 word essays – and the new coalition application and its portfolio approach is an invitation to new approaches. Sometimes, however, naïve behavior in the social realm comes back to harm students, especially when admissions officers go looking. Raymond Ravaglia moderates a discussion with Alan Katzman, CEO of Social Assurity, a company specializing in the use of social media for teen audiences, and New York Times journalist Natasha Singer, who has written extensively on this issue.
— Panel 5: Crafting the Essay of Your Life.

Speakers Include

  • Alan Katzman, CEO of Social Assurity
  • Natasha Singer, New York Times journalist
  • Alex Soojung-Kim Pang, author of “Rest: Getting More Done While Working Less,” to learn how “deliberate rest” plays an important role in the lives of the world’s most creative and productive individuals.

HR Alliance: More with Less? Teams Dealing with Resource Constraints

  • The Gannett/Tegna Building

In this highly interactive session, you will experience ways to enhance team performance. We have a solid, evidence-based understanding of what drives team performance, and we know how team size and membership change affects that performance. Generally, the evidence focuses on what teams can do or have more of to do better – more ideas, more time, more resources. However, there is a growing sense that having less might also be helpful under some circumstances. Having less time, fewer resources, and losing members might actually prompt teams to be more innovative, coordinate more effectively, and develop better work practices. This session will quickly summarize what we know about the five key drivers of team performance and then explore the emerging science of how teams respond to constraints. What happens when a team’s budget is cut? When it loses members (and they aren’t replaced)? When deadlines are moved up? Almost everyone has experienced one or more of these “shocks.” Can they ever increase team’s effectiveness? Under what circumstances can teams do more with less?
