On April 3rd, 2015, the SAIS International Finance Club hosted a panel of 2nd Year MA students who will be working for various finance institutions upon their graduation next month. Moderated by Ayan Qu, the panelists shared their experiences with the job hunt and interview process and shared tips with their fellow students. Coming from a variety of backgrounds (including an English Literature major in college!), they explained how they made their transitions into a career in finance and encouraged their classmates to get organized, passionate and determined in their own job searches. The panelists answered a few questions from Ayan before a Q&A session with the audience.
Many thanks to our amazing panelists Nancy Wang Lu, Kevin Boyland, Taylor Crompton, and Wendy Chen who were nice and helpful enough to share with us their experience before they leave SAIS for their careers with the IFC, the NY Fed, Morgan Stanley, and Goldman Sachs. We always enjoy learning from them and hope more SAISers will find their dream job!
