Two TIAA Scholars Among this Semester's Grads
Included among those graduated on Monday were TIAA Scholars Ayshe Ulgen and Jake Strickler, whose name may be familiar to you as TIAA's new Operations Manager.

Ayshe graduated as a member of the Pi Sigma Alpha Honor Society for Political Science, and Jake as a recipient of the CEO's Circle Award, which is given at the discretion of the faculty and administration to those students who have made a lasting contribution to the school.

Jake will be manning the TIAA office in Scottsdale full-time, and Ayshe is seeking opportunities either with IGOs such as the World Bank, OECD, or United Nations, or in the private sector; specifically in biotech or venture capital.

With Ayshe's and Jake's graduation, the total number of Scholars who have successfully completed their programs is up to eight, withseven more still in the midst of courses and a new group - to be announced - coming in the Fall. You can read more about the Scholars Program here.

    Webinar: Video Interviewing with Bernadette Martin '84 and Catharine Fennell

In this webinar, Bernadette Martin, TIAA Volunteer and Chair of the Career Advantage Program, will be joined by Catharine Fennell, CEO and Founder of videoBIO, a cloud-based platform that facilitates video interviewing. Together they will show you the technology and, post-webinar, give you the change to test it out and see yourself "live," conducting a video interview using the platform.

    The webinar will be held next Thursday, May 18, at 10:00 a.m. ET. Get excited for this one! It may provide just the right tools you need to take the next step in your career. Click here to register.
