Career Conversation and an Arts Discussion with Elizabeth Warfel ’19 – Thursday, June 4

Please join us for a Career Conversation and an Arts Industry Reading Discussion with Elizabeth Warfel ’19. Elizabeth will discuss her on-campus experiences and summer internships related to the Arts and will share advice on how to get started in the industry.

Based on Elizabeth’s recommendation, we will also discuss two articles titled “With Galleries Closed, a Moment for Net Artists to Shine” by Andrew Dickson and “The First AI- Generated Portrait Ever Sold at Auction Shatters Expectations, Fetching $432,500 – 43 Times Its Estimate” by Eileen Kinsella. This is a great opportunity to meet an alum working in the Arts and learn about the current trends in the industry!

Elizabeth Warfel graduated from Middlebury in 2019 with a double major in Art History and French, and significant coursework in Studio Art. After graduating she interned at Christie’s NYC in the Estates, Appraisals, and Valuations Department and then the Impressionist and Modern Art Department. Since then she has been working for the Contemporary and Digital Art Fair (CADAF) doing their marketing and social media.

Time4Coffee Podcast

Time4Coffee is a social enterprise — the centerpiece of which is a podcast — dedicated to helping college students, grad students and young professionals still looking for the right job in the right career, navigate a rapidly changing global job marketplace. 

As the Time4Coffee name implies, these in-depth ‘caffeinated career conversations’ and related blog posts, explore many of the same topics covered when people meet, in person, over a cup of coffee to ask for career advice. However, without personal connections and geographic proximity, most young people wouldn’t have entrée to meet these professionals in person. Therefore, Time4Coffee’s mission is to level the playing field so that no matter who you know (or don’t know) and no matter where you live, you can still have access to the same amazing career advice 24/7 just by pressing play.

Time4Coffee also aims to leverage social media platforms like Facebook Live, YouTube, LinkedIn and Instagram to generate meaningful engagement between young people and professionals, from the entry-level up to the C-suite, around the country and the world.
