Alumni Conversations: Garrett Simpson ’11, Product Operations Fellow at PharmaSecure (India)

Position: Product Operations Fellow at PharmaSecurePhoto of Garrett Simpson '11 on the job in India

Location: New Delhi, India

Short description of what you do: As PharmaSecure is still a young company, I’ve been helping out with a variety of things. My main responsibilities are supporting the product development team by defining requirements for new products and overseeing their development, data analysis, and monitoring of current products.

Degree at Dartmouth: Bachelor’s of Engineering focusing in Mechanical Engineering

1. What is most satisfying about your current work?

The general work environment and the people I work with — the organization is very flat, and I’ve gained some great friends and mentors during my time here.

2. What’s the best way to enter your field? Any essential elements of preparation? 

Networking — I audited a Tuck class my senior year, Intro to Entrepreneurship, and met the CEO (Nathan Sigworth ’07) after a class in which he gave a guest lecture. Ten months later I Facebook messaged him out of the blue during a week of intense job searching, asking him if there were any internships or fellowships available and luckily there were!

3. What advice would you give to others seeking opportunities in this field?

Reach out to and network with alumni. There are so many amazing people, and they will want to help you.  There are some useful job sites/lists that are more geared toward social enterprise as well, like social-enterprise-jobs@googlegroups.com.

5. How has Dartmouth supported you in your career development?

Dartmouth’s Network is truly amazing.  I’ve only just started out on my career more or less, with just a handful of internships under my belt, but all of my gainful employment post-graduation has been the direct result of networking with Dartmouth alumni.  As I’m starting to look for my next step, classmates a few years older than me have given great advice on how to frame my job search in a way that will help me clarify my career goals.

Fall or Winter teaching fellowship in Mexico – deadline Aug. 5th!

IAPE (Inter-American Partnership for Education) presents:

LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION AS SOCIAL SERVICE FELLOWSHIP  in VALLE DE BRAVO ESTADO DE MEXICO, MEXICO

IAPE aims to transform English language instruction in Mexico’s most underserved public schools by training, empowering, and supporting a dedicated network of innovative and dynamic English language educators.

Background: The Inter-American Partnership for Education (IAPE) is a joint effort of Worldfund and Dartmouth College’s Rassias Center for World Languages and Cultures.

Worldfund is a non-profit organization that works to reduce poverty in Latin American by supporting high-quality and results-driven education. The Rassias Center promotes cross-cultural understanding and strengthens communication among people around the world by training teachers in aspects of the Rassias Method® and offering World Language Instruction for students of all ages. The two organizations joined forces when in 2006, Worldfund’s Founder and President Luanne Zurlo spoke to Professor Rassias about creating a program for a group of English as a Second Language Teachers.  Following two pilot sessions in 2007, the project secured funding from Nextel de Mexico and Becalos, and gained recognition as a Clinton Global Initiative Commitment. Today IAPE enrolls approximately 400 teachers per year and receives support from multiple foundations, corporations, and individual supporters in the U.S. and Mexico, and from the Mexican state governments in which the participating teachers work. Summer programs currently take place at Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH USA.  Programs during the academic year take place in Santa Fe Tlaxcala, in the State of Tlaxcala, Mexico.

  • Fellowship Title: English Language Fellow  (Assistant Teacher)

Security of participants and staff is of paramount concern to both Dartmouth and Worldfund.  Compared to much of the country, Valle de Bravo, a popular retreat for Mexico’s upper class, is considered peaceful and was first recommended to Dartmouth and Worldfund as a potential program location in 2009, by the security consultants at International SOS with whom both organizations work to provide security services to students and employees. Valle de Bravo continues to be considered a stable location, where violent crime is much less of a concern than in many other areas of the country, including states that border the United States.  Nonetheless, staff members are reminded that IAPE cannot guarantee their safety at home or abroad and that much of their safety and security depends ultimately on their own behavior and personal choices.  It is incumbent on all staff to be part of the safety process, to keep themselves informed about local conditions, and to act responsibly. Prior to departure, U.S.-based staff will be briefed about safety precautions, including current travel precautions, by program personnel and by International SOS security specialists. Upon arrival in Mexico City, U.S.-based staff will be transported to Valle de Bravo by reputable private transportation as recommended by International SOS.  The program is managed in conjunction with an extensive network of local contacts and the program team remains in close communication with the U.S. State Department and International SOS and regularly monitors local events.  The IAPE On-Site Coordinator, an employee of Dartmouth College, resides in Valle de Bravo and is available in the event of a security or medical concern.  International SOS is also available 24 hours a day for telephone consultation and assistance.

Travel Waivers for Dartmouth Students from the Provost’s Office will be applied for after acceptance.
