The 18th Annual Gerontology Colloquium took place on April 3. This year’s colloquium featured MSUM graduate Paul Baymler (B.A. Gerontology, 2014). Baymler is a Senior Linkage Line Phone Specialist with the Land of the Dancing Sky Area Agency on Aging, one of Minnesota’s seven area agencies on aging that are administered by the Minnesota Board on Aging. Students gained valuable information about job opportunities available to new graduates, ways in which a major in gerontology can strengthen one’s application for professional employment, job-seeking advice, working conditions in institutional vs. community-based settings, as well as in direct-service vs. administrative roles. The Annual Gerontology Colloquium is held during Careers in Aging Week, a nationwide initiative of the Academy for Gerontology in Higher Education.
