Smith Career Day: Careers in Consulting and Finance

Smith Career Day is sponsored by the Joel A. Smith III Fund for Career Exploration and organized by the Babson Center for Global Commerce and the Sewanee Career Center.  Alumni serve as panelists, and the event provides students with an overview of career options, practice interview opportunities, and the ability to network with Sewanee alumni. 

Alumni of the University will be on campus to talk with students about their careers in consulting and finance.  Students can attend a technical interview training, two case study interview training sessions, networking lunch, keynote address, panel discussion and have one-on-one time with the visiting professionals through practice interviews. This year's alumni work at Accenture, Blue Canyon Partners, Harbert Management Corporation, Harris Williams, HyperWallet (a PayPal service), Intrepid Capital, Kabbage, and The Glover Park Group.
