Samsung Hosts 2nd Annual Summer Discovery Series

Samsung will host its 2nd annual Summer Discovery Series on Monday, July 17, 2017, for over 75 college students and young professionals. The four-part series, hosted at Samsung 837 in New York City, aims to give attendees the opportunity to listen to an intimate career-centric conversation and Q&A session with some of the biggest names in entertainment, fashion and social media.

Samsung is highly committed to investing in the nation’s youth and seeks to provide an enriching, educational experience through this series. As such, members of the Samsung executive team will be on hand to meet, greet and network with attendees. They will also serve as moderators for each of the Q&A sessions.

Attendees will have the opportunity to have their resumes reviewed onsite, in addition to a pop-up headshot corner which will give attendees the opportunity to have professional headshots taken to help enhance their LinkedIn/professional profiles.

This year’s inaugural guest will be Hoda Kotb, co-host of NBC News’ TODAY and correspondent for Dateline NBC, who will be sharing how she got her start in the industry and speak to the importance of networking, internships, and insights.

“The Summer Discovery Series will provide first-hand exposure to various career paths and lessons learned,” said Ann Woo, Director of Corporate Citizenship, Samsung Electronics America. “It’s an opportunity for us to empower young adults to network and engage with top professionals as they share their stories of success.”

Sessions will continue to run on the mainstage of Samsung 837, bi-weekly from 5:00PM-7:00PM, concluding on Monday, August 28.  Participants are invited to engage in discussion around the main stage, network with Samsung executives, and enjoy some lite fare and beverages in Samsung 837’s cellar bar.
