For nearly a decade, Colby has hosted an all-day conference in Boston designed to expose liberal arts students of all majors and class years to career pathways in finance. It has been our single largest career education event, with over 150 students and 150 alumni participating in industry panels, mock interviews, and networking lunches.
This year, we are hosting a virtual event over two weekday evenings so you can learn about the financial services landscape from alumni experts on Day 1 and then meet with alumni representing different specialties in small group chats on Day 2. You learn, you connect, and you set yourself up for mentorship and future internship opportunities.
This is a great place to begin your discovery of careers in finance and to develop relationships with passionate alumni advisors who can guide you.
