Event Day Student Coaches/Facilitators

Each student will have the opportunity to participate during discussions and presentations, in a small group setting, with leaders from elite organizations across the greater Tri-State area. This will afford them the opportunity to ask any questions they may have about transitioning from college to career, and learn more about what it takes to succeed in the corporate environment.
