Management Club Guest Panel – November 5, 2013

Last Tuesday, the Management Club sponsored an event with three guest speakers in the Human Resources field. Dr. Lisa Mainiero, professor of management, introduced the speakers, Pat Nzemets, Sharon Budds and Debora Gross, who took turns talking about their career paths and experiences. Business school students had the ability to engage with them while eating pizza. The club touched upon the point of always having the ability to “convey your story” to another professional. Another important takeaway was to be authentic. Companies want to understand the employee as a person. The better the employee articulates his or her goals,  the more success the employee will have. The speakers said networking plays a major role in the job search process.
