Even when we’re not in the classroom, Boothies are constantly learning. We seek out information and take every opportunity to explore new industries. During the Fall Quarter, Boothies attended a lot of conferences, both on campus and around the country. Here’s a quick look at the long list of conferences we have access to as Booth students.
This is a continuation of our previous post about treks at Booth.
As a first year student, you have the opportunity to lead or attend career treks around the country. With the help of second years, Career Services, and Booth alumni, you are able to visit multiple companies within a particular industry to explore your interests and network with Booth alumni and non-Booth employees. It’s a great opportunity to learn more about companies that don’t recruit on campus as well as experience the culture of companies that do recruit on campus firsthand. Here’s a quick recap of what some of the first year student leaders had to say about their treks:
The Winter Quarter is such a busy time for first-year students because most are interviewing through the on-campus program for internships. This week, Matthew Richman gives a first-hand perspective of what the investment banking interview process is like.
We huddled together, nervously clutching our leather portfolios, adjusting ties and name tags, and spending one last minute going over the finer points of corporate valuation. Suddenly, with a pronounced “click,” a nearby door opened and a head poked out.
The second perspective on Bank Week is from Matthew Richman, a first-year student and member of the DSAC Communications team. Although it sounds like Matt had a very busy week attending events, he still had some time to enjoy New York and to get to spend time with classmates!
The Career Trek Series continues with double-feature coverage of Bank Week in New York City. The first post is from Felipe Marin, who provides us with an update of his investment banking recruiting experience.
