IN CASE YOU MISSED IT:
Recently on The Low Down, you heard from humanities scholar Robert Young, who had lectured at the Columbia Global Center in Amman and recounted the story of Walter Benjamin, a German Jew who fled Nazi Germany but was caught at the border of France and Spain, where he resorted suicide rather than be sent back.
During the lecture, Young played a clip from Casablanca, drawing parallels between the Hollywood story and the truth behind it. The Low Down created a bonus mini-episode just for it. Take a listen and follow the intertwining stories of Walter Benjamin, Humphrey Bogart, and Ingrid Bergman, as they flee south out of Europe.
The Columbia Career Coaches Network, whose members' informative articles you've seen on The Low Down, is a group of seasoned career professionals—and they're also your fellow alumni. This week, they wrote about why it's incredibly valuable to work with a coach to better your career.
