Over 50 Alabama students attended a career development panel developed by UANYC members.

October 1, 2010

The Greater New York Chapter partnered with Alabama's Manderson Graduate School of Business to host a career development panel for University students on Friday, October 1 in Mary Alston Hall.

The panel's vision was to create a networking opportunity for current students to interact with New York City-area alums on career advice and connect on future job openings. The panel drew over 50 students representing the colleges of Communication & Information Sciences, Engineering, Human Environmental Sciences and Arts & Sciences, as well as business school undergraduates and specialized Masters and MBA students. 

UANYC President Chris Hollinger and Vice President, New York Corey Gibbs, along with long-time chapter supporter and former President Heath Terry, participated as panelists along with alums Jim Offutt (Senior Vice President, Coach) and Jennifer Reed (Jefferies & Company, Inc.).

The panel was coordinated by UANYC Career Development Chair Reese Goode and Career Development Committee Member Rodrigo Flores working with MBA faculty members Connie Chambers and Linda Johnson.

The business school will be working with the chapter to make this annual event at the Capstone and has already expressed interest into expanding this concept for other cities such as Dallas, Charlotte and Chicago.
