The next NUBAA Student Based Initiatives launch is tomorrow: Engineers Connect. Come enjoy Hecky’s and Career Coaching at Tech, sponsored by BNY Mellon, and hosted by Tony Wilkins, McCormick ’79 (Managing Director at BNY Mellon) and NSBE President Bobbie Burgess.
We’re looking forward to seeing those of you who RSVPed and keeping the rest of you in the loop. This is our second annual Engineering student/alumni mixer event and the fourth Student Based Initiatives launch this year!
The mentoring event will take place in LR4 in Tech and we will start at 6:30.
Everyone will have a few moments to introduce ourselves, followed by brief discussions with students to test their ‘icebreaker’ skills. The student participants were giving a little homework to be able to answer the following questions;
1. Prepare a five word answer to the question: Tell me about yourself. Those words should be the ‘subject line’ for a subsequent explanatory narrative. Eg. I’m an “engineering alum turned early-stage investor”. …using early-stage as one word!
2. Prepare a five word answer to the question; Where do you see yourself in 3 or five years? “I don’t know” is a perfectly good answer but if you do have one, explain it as a ‘subject line’ with details to follow.
3. Have them bring a draft version of their resume in a word doc on their laptop to the session for on-the-spot suggested modifications.
Please come out. Even if your career path wasn’t in engineering although you majored in it, your presence will be of value!
