Career Education Series & NYC Treks

Each spring Women in Finance offers educational and networking Treks to companies in both Boston and New York City. In Spring of 2020 we offered our first ever Freshman NYC Trek where students went on a 3-day trip to New York and were able to visit six firms to learn about various career paths with a focus on Investment Banking. This fall we will be offering Virtual Treks and networking opportunities in the form of a career education series. Career Education panels for this fall include but are not limited to, a Private Equity Panel, a Corporate Finance Panel, a Navigating Investment Banking Panel, and a Restructuring Panel.

Executive Speakers

The Executive Speaker Series (ESS) is an opportunity for undergraduate women, open to an interdisciplinary audience, to learn the stories and wisdom from female executives. In the past this has included positions across the C-level: CEO, CFO, CIO, and Chief Economist. These executives have traditionally worked in either the finance industry or come from some studying or other background in finance to further inspire women pursuing a business degree, particularly in finance and/or accounting.

Technical Skill Building

The goal of Workshops and Skill Series this semester is to help build members’ technical skills for the purpose of interviewing for co-ops or full-time work. We want our members to be competitive as technical interviewing becomes more popular with higher level positions. Technical skills include but are not limited to financial modeling, investing, personal finance, excel, PowerPoint, and learning how to use Bloomberg. This Fall we are already committed to hosting a Bloomberg Education Series through Northeastern’s virtual terminals.

Coffee Chats

The Coffee Chat series generally consists of young women and alumni that work in finance and a small group of undergraduate students discussing career paths and journeys in a more casual environment than that of the executive speaker series. Through these chats, students gain valuable insights into being a young female professional and how to navigate career challenges as well as certifications and degrees.

Market Chats

The Market Chat series was launched during Summer 2020 with the ultimate goals of to further expose our students to market and financial terminology, encourage a thirst for self-education and forming opinions on current trends, and to help our members become more comfortable and confident talking about the market. We hope to foster an open educational environment within our Northeastern community, especially during these challenging times. We believe that hosting Market Chats is particularly relevant given the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global economy.
