Sandy Li, an esteemed mentor and career coach, is coming to Stern on Friday, September 21 from 12-2pm. She will be leading a two-hour workshop focusing on transitioning into a career in Venture Capital and Private Equity and how to prepare yourself for a successful recruiting process:

· Avenues into PE/VC (including alternative paths): What employers are looking for, and why it’s possible to come from a non-investment banking background

· Resume Workshop: Taking an in-depth look at how to improve resumes and leverage existing experience to position yourself into new roles

· Crafting Your Story & Perfecting Your Pitch: Interactive, relevant examples covering how to position your background so that you stand out from your peers in a way that makes you unique but not off spec

So this event can be tailored specifically to its audience participants, please submit by 9/14/18 the following information to Hannah Shore @ Hannah.shore@stern.nyu.edu
