December 2017: CSB Students Visit NYC for Networking and Job Exploration

CSB students in NYC

CSB Marketing, Finance, Economics and International Business students visited New York City over December 12-15, 2017 to visit local firms for job and internship prospecting, as well as mingle with CSB alumni at a mixer. This trip is offered each year to students in the Economics and Finance, Marketing and International Business concentrations.

Luke Barcley and friends in NYC, December 2017About the trip, senior Luke Barcley says, "New York gave me a great understanding of what it would take to work at the large, well known firm, like the places we toured. It helped me see that those positions are attainable even though I didn't go to a prestigious university. But more importantly it helped me see that there was not going to be a way to succeed at those type of jobs without a lot of hard work. That was the main point of a lot of of the talks and my conversations with alumni. So even if I don't end up in New York, I know the amount of hard work it will take to compete with those people who work in in New York City. Overall it was a great experience."
