Joe Geraci, the speaker at the event below, is a Math Dept
PhD grad and is now a scientist at the Ontario Cancer Biomarker Network.

The University of Toronto has undertaken a series of seminars,
geared towards providing information and dialogue about careers,
for third and fourth year students, called Backpack to Briefcase (B2B).
This series is extremely important for third and fourth year
students who are now asking themselves, "What can I do with
my Mathematics Degree?"

The final event for this year is our Three Things Cocktail Party.

We invite you to join a group of other alumni and be present to
respond to students query as they mingle at the event.  The main
presentations will be on three key things that graduates should
be aware of. In the past, our panelists speak of their own
professional growth and zero in on three things they view as
important. This year Joe Geraci has agreed to be the
representative speaker for the Math alumni.  After the talks,
students mingle and speak with past alumni and panelist.

planning, research, publishing, grant-seeking, report-writing, public
speaking and community service. This conference will bring together
education researchers, educational developers, faculty members,
administrators, independent scholars, graduate students, librarians and
student life professionals to explore graduate student development.
