  • How do you balance the cost of living and entry-level salaries?
  • How do you make contacts?
  • What is the best way to approach a job search?
  • Is it possible to secure a position before heading to New York City?
  • These topics and many more will be discussed.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, you will have the opportunity to participate in a total of six to eight office visits and tours in your chosen area of interest.

If by the deposit deadline, a group has fewer than eight students, the group may be cancelled at the discretion of the organizers. In the event of a group cancellation, students will be given the option to move to another group, or receive a refund of their deposit.
