Natalie Berkman *18 earned a Ph.D. in French Literature, and was a University Administrative Fellow in the Center for Career Development (formerly Career Services), where she worked closely with the staff and with another UAF on employer outreach for the first graduate student career meetup.

Natalie is a higher education specialist, currently working as the Responsable Ingénierie Pédagogique (Instructional Design Manager) at ESSEC Business School. Prior to that, she was the Directrice pédagogique (Academic Manager) at SAE Institute Paris.

"My UAF with Career Services not only gave me valuable experience in university administration, event organizing, and budget planning, but also opened my eyes and mind to the myriad of careers available to PhDs beyond the professoriate. Organizing the first Grad Student Career Meetup helped me to start picturing myself doing other things, and now I am happily managing all of the instructional design projects for the #2 business school in Paris!"
