WIBTernship

Associate Programming InFocus and Alternative Career Events

InFocus is a customized program for associates to explore the industries of finance and consulting with greater depth. In participating in either or both tracks, 20 women will learn from business professionals and fellow students who have worked in these two industries. Through hard skill and soft skill workshops that culminate in a case study and stock pitch competition at the end of the program, InFocus seeks to help participants acquire the skills necessary to be successful during summer internships or during next year's recruiting season.

In addition to InFocus, associates will also have an opportunity to explore an alternative career in greater depth. Associates will have the opportunity to attend upcoming events with professionals from journalism, technology, and the fashion industries in the spring semester. Both the InFocus and the alternative careers program will culminate with exclusive networking opportunities with sponsors at the end of the semester.
