Faces of AWNY: Skye Cleary.  About an Aussie girl in NYC.

AWNY | Australian Women in New York

Why and where are you in NYC?  

I moved to NYC from Sydney for an adventure (and work) over two years ago. We live on the Upper West Side because it’s close to Central Park and good schools.

What do you do?  

I am an author. My book Existentialism and Romantic Love is coming out in Spring! Stay connected with AWNY for details on the book launch in May. I also work at Columbia University in research and communications.

Do you have any advice for professionals working in NYC?  

  1. Give yourself a good six months to get a job. Network and apply online – people get jobs both ways.
  2. Find your narrative (“elevator pitch”) and talk it up. A lot. There is no room for modesty in this city!
  3. Come to terms with the fact that the U.S. has the worst work-life balance of the 23 OECD nations.
