About an year ago, HerNetwork’s spring conference was held at Questrom School of Business. With panelists from various competitive industries such as finance, accounting, marketing, law, fashion and consulting, attendees of the event were able to gain insight and advices on their careers.
For example, during the finance panel last year, panelists from Wellington Management, Morgan Stanley, Fidelity and Charles Schwab highlighted few key points in their career in finance industry. They emphasized the importance of soft skills, how career in finance require communication skills. The panelists also mentioned how you do not need to know everything before you are hired; companies such as Morgan Stanley and Charles Schwab provide programs for employees to get certification while working. They also recommended attendees to subscribe daily financial news to keep up with the industry trends.
Not only attendees were able to network with those professionals, but also could receive those practical advices. 2017 Women Mean Business Spring Conference also invites professionals from Ernst & Young, PwC, Accenture, Hubspot, New Balance and more. Attendees will have the opportunity to network with the professionals and gain advices on their future career path.
Come Hear, Engage, Respond with herNetwork on Saturday February 11th!
