On campus, she is a Sigma Kappa sister and class rep, consultant for the MIT Consulting Group, and Associate Advisor for Concourse.

Simran Pabla

Simran Pabla is a junior studying Computer Science at MIT. When not carrying out her responsibilities as Week-of Logistics Director, she can be found in shop with the rest of MIT’s Solar Electric Vehicle Team, living out her Iron Man aspirations. She also enjoys reading, watching basketball, and consuming sugar in all forms. In the past, Simran has interned at Optum and Lark Technologies, where she developed a chatbot and researched and prototyped models to categorize text and user sentiment. She aspires to fuse her passions for machine learning and data science with spacecraft and robotics to take autonomy to new heights. This year, Simran is excited to make Career Week more diverse, accessible, and inspiring for all students.
 


Why Did You Decide to Become a Director?

I’ve always been interested in the behind-the scenes action of how such a huge event gets put together. My curiosity and my experience as a student drove me to want to support and improve the Career Fair as a director. I’m really excited to see our team’s hard work come together this fall!
— Sonja Lindberg
After volunteering for the fair last summer, I want to contribute on a larger scale and bring forward my ideas to evolve the fair.

Yun Gu

Yun Gu is a junior studying Computer Science and Economics. On campus, she dances with MIT Ridonkulous and is an active member of Sigma Kappa. She also enjoys writing, filmmaking, and napping if she catches some free time between planning the 2018 Fall Career Fair and learning about algorithms. This past summer, she went to Israel for an internship and hopes to travel more soon (she's working on learning French at the moment).

Ashley Wang

Ashley Wang is a sophomore studying Data Science. She lives in McCormick and enjoys running, ballet, and photography. She has interned at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in the Global Monitoring Division, and has also worked on a proof-of-concept serverless retail website at Nordstrom (yes, they do have a technology department!). At MIT, Ashley is active in MIT Climate Action Team, Asian Dance Team, and Society of Women Engineers.


Why Did You Decide to Become a Director?

I want to make an impact on this common MIT experience and to take this opportunity to work with a team of amazingly motivated people to make an event of such scale come together.
— Yun Gu
I love logistics and making events actually happen, and I wanted to take a bigger role in putting on the Fall Career Fair which benefits so many in the MIT community.

Interview Logistics

Stephanie Zhang

 

Stephanie Zhang is a sophomore majoring in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (6-2) and minoring in Statistics. She lives in MacGregor and enjoys playing the piano, traveling, and attending BSO concerts in her free time. She spent this past summer researching inverse procedural modeling via program synthesis with CSAIL’s Computational Fabrication Group and creating health coaching algorithms for wearable sensors measuring cardiometabolic disease in children with D-Lab. On campus, she is a member of Asian Dance Team and a painter for the Shakespeare Ensemble.


Why Did You Decide to Become a Director?

The Fall Career Fair is a pivotal event for all MIT students, as it connects us to career opportunities and helps us discover what we actually want to do in the future. The Career Fair requires a substantial investment of time and energy in order for it to be successful but it has such a huge impact on the students, so being a director is the best way for me to give back to the MIT community.
