Workday launched on Jan. 4. To help with the transition we are offering daily drop-in sessions. If you get stuck, are confused or have a question, join a Workday Open Lab Zoom and team members will be there ready to help. We are running open labs all day long for the entire first week after the Workday launch (Jan. 4-8) and for two hours each day the following weeks. Zoom link and the full training schedule are available on amherst.edu/go/workday (login required).
You are learning a lot in your classes-- learning to think, analyze, and communicate. That’s great! However, if you want to intern and/or work in finance, you’ll need to supplement your great education with some preparation for recruiting and interviews.
January is the perfect time to learn the skills necessary to land that internship or full-time position. The Loeb Center's Traub Careers in Business and Finance program will host an 8-session workshop series for sophomores and juniors looking to understand and enhance preparation for finance interviews taking place in Spring 2021 & Summer 2021.
These workshops will help you understand the finance recruiting process AND gain integral content and technical information necessary to ace the finance interview. Join Rob Parker ’21 to gain access to his proven process and materials that will help you learn material, whether preparing for investment banking, sales & trading, research (buy or sell side), or private investing.
You must register in advance, via Handshake, by no later than December 11th and plan to ATTEND ALL 8 WORKSHOPS. Each workshop will run from 7 – 8pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout January 2021.
