Simon Career Center hosts “Talk to the Top” events

By Tony:

One of Simon's strengths as a smaller top-tier b-school is the close-knit community among those associated with the school.  This community atmosphere was portrayed again this month as our current students and alumni met on May 8th and 15th for "Talk to the Top."

 

The "Talk to the Top" events hosted by the Simon Career Management Center gave students the opportunity to meet with Simon alums in a 1 on 1 setting. The event pairs a group of 4 current students, 4 alums and one staff host for a lunch discussion about professional advice, career tips and networking.  The May 8th session included alumni from Simon's Executive Advisory Committee and the session on the 15th included Simon's Alumni Council.

 

I had the privilege of hosting a table at both events and experienced how the informal conversations with alumni offered relevant insight.  Students were eager to share what personal goals they would like to achieve through a chosen career path; while alums offered any advice, humor or personal connections to help students pursue their goals.
