KSOM business club to host ‘Silicon Valley to Silicon Alley’

After a successful Business Recruiting EXPO, officers and members of the Business Club are wrapping up the fall semester with one final meeting. During this meeting, which will take place at 6:45 p.m. Wednesday in Brennan 228, the newly-elected officers as well as guest speaker Jasmine Teer will be introduced.
Teer’s presentation, “Silicon Valley to Silicon Alley, and Everything in Between,” will focus on putting a business degree to use in the technology world. More importantly, she will address what students or any job-seekers should do to explore careers. The Business Club hopes to see many of its members and friends present, for this will surely be a presentation that is not to be missed. The club’s ultimate hope is not only to welcome informative speakers to the meetings, but speakers who are capable of offering guidance to active members.
The Business Club currently consists of about 100 University students. Though mainly comprised of Kania School of Management (KSOM) students, it strives to interest students of all majors who are attentive to the business world. The mission of the club is to provide developmental activities, to promote communication and networking among students, faculty members and alumni and to educate The University as a whole on various business principles and topics.
The club works with the President’s Business Council to promote the Council’s networking trips, and the most recent was to Washington, D.C. The most popular event is the Business Recruiting EXPO that takes place every fall semester. During this event, companies and alumni that are primarily from the New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania areas attend to speak with University students about career opportunities, internship openings and mentoring resources. A reception among recruiters, faculty and students occurs in the Radisson Lackawanna Station Hotel soon after the EXPO.
Daniel Seddiqui, the author of “50 Jobs in 50 States,” was invited to speak during this year’s reception Sept. 26 and delivered a notable presentation. With a heartfelt, honest, eye-opening and humorous presentation, Seddiqui addressed the importance of courage, determination and optimism.
The Business Club officers wrapped up their term and are waiting to show the new officers the ropes of leading this organization in spring 2014.
