Spring Finance Career Mixer

MU Room 202 (map)

The goal of the mixer is to connect you with employers in a more personal setting than a career fair. You will have the opportunity to speak with employers one-on-one and have conversations about not only the firms and their employment opportunities, but also your personal and career aspirations. Students often find meaningful conversations and connections from events like this.

The mixer is structured to give each firm a table to occupy and for students to voluntarily come to each table if they are interested in that particular firm. There will be food and refreshments throughout the event, and there will be minimal facilitation to encourage natural relationship-building. You will have the opportunity to speak with 5-10 employers, depending on how long each conversation lasts. We recommend bringing sufficient copies of your resume to be prepared if the situation calls for it; however, you are welcomed to come just to have a good conversation as well!

If you have any questions about the event, please contact Vivian Chen at
