Please visit the company websites and review the LinkedIn profiles for your hosts. Make sure engage the hosts with thoughtful questions about their company and their career paths.
Subway passes with 4 pre-loaded rides will be provided for Friday’s tours; if you need additional rides before Friday morning, please purchase your own MetroCard. You can reload MetroCards with additional rides at any time.
For the Thursday networking event, “dress to impress” a future employer. Friday dress is business attire.
