Making a Positive IMPACT – Deloitte Career Day!
A massive thanks to Deloitte for hosting a group of our students and alumni at Deloitte's Impact Day 2011! This was our first year participating in Deloitte's annual, nationwide day of community service. Sixteen Futures and Options students and alumni were treated to a morning of career exploration and interview training at Deloitte's Two World Financial Center offices, courtesy of 12 Deloitte volunteers from various groups within the firm.
Deloitte volunteer Ryan MacDonald mock interviewing Luis Gonzalez, Futures and Options alum.
The morning began with an introduction and overview of Deloitte, led by Yogesh Bahl, a partner in the Financial Advisory Services group. Following the introduction and an icebreaker that got everyone out of their seats and moving around, a panel of four Deloitte volunteers spoke about their own journeys in the professional world and then entertained questions from the students. The event wrapped up with a lively speed interview session and lunch in the firm's cafeteria.
The day was a big hit with the kids – a fantastic combination of career exploration, networking and skills development. Our most sincere thanks go to Christine Wade, Ryan MacDonald, and our board member Stephen Musante, without whom this event would not have been possible.
We look forward to participating again in the coming years!
