Event Recap- Superstar Senior Panel
Last week's event was a showcase of a few of Stern's exceptional seniors, who provided us insight into the recruiting process, different positions in finance, and life. We had representatives from investment banking, sales and trading, asset management, and capital markets roles at top financial services institutions. Although each person advocated on the behalf of their specific function, everyone agreed that freshman and sophomore years should be seen as a period of exploration. Overwhelmingly, they expressed that Stern students pigeonhole themselves into a certain career path without determining which options truly correlate with their specific skills and interests. The panel served as a great reminder that this more often then not leads to an unfortunate post-graduation experience. Thanks a ton to all the seniors who participated in our panel and feel free to reach out to Finance Society members with any questions or concerns you may have about the recruiting process!
