Allyson Dhindsa

Allyson Dhindsa graduated from Emory in 2008 with a BA in Jewish Studies. Dhindsa says she was drawn to the Jewish Studies major by the extraordinary professors—such as Ken Stein—who shaped her time at Emory, and also due to the advice her father gave her to “take professors, not just courses.”  She says that like many liberal arts graduates, she is not pursuing a career directly related to her major, but that her work relies on the critical thinking skills she learned as a Jewish Studies graduate. She is currently Associate Director for career coaching at NYU’s Stern School of Business, and she needs to be both critical and careful when she thinks about how to best support her students. Congratulations are also in order – she recently had a baby!
