Fall 2012 Smith Career Conversations: Careers in Finance


"I'm looking for someone who is driven, a good communicator, with a passion for what you do."

"Having the liberal arts background is a positive differentiator. Be confident."

These were some of the pieces of advice the four visiting alumni with careers in finance shared with students on Friday, September 14, 2012, during the Smith Career Conversations event. Students dined with the alumni, asked questions following a panel discussion, and many took advantage of the opportunity to sharpen their interview skills through practice interviews with the alumni. 

We're grateful that alumni are willing to travel back to the mountain to share their experiences and advice with Sewanee students. The event is made possible once each semester thanks to a generous gift from Joel A. Smith, III C'67. The Smith endowment provides support for "Career Conversations" and funding for internships each summer for students working in the business environment.
