Executives Share Insights During Career Week

Industry leaders are meeting one-on-one with students this week during the School’s first-ever “Career Week” sponsored by the F. David Fowler Career Center (FDFCC).

The executive-in-residence program is making industry leaders available for 20-minute sessions to cover topics of interest in their particular fields.

Career Week’s series of programs, including the executive-in-residence sessions, are designed to help students get up-to-speed on their readiness for the job market. The sessions kicked off Sept. 30.

The week’s events are focused on opportunities in finance, marketing and consulting, with activities for both graduate and undergraduate students, including panel discussions, networking sessions and one-on-one coaching.

The executives-in-residence include Ellie Hollander, president and chief executive officer of the Meals On Wheels Association of America and a member of GWSB’s Corporate Collaborative Council, a initiative that fosters partnerships among employers, students and faculty to foster talent for the global economy; Andrew Lewis, a partner at KPMG LLP, who works in the firm’s government audit practice in Washington, D.C., and is a CCC member; and Nina Rosenstein, senior vice president at HBO.
