Hello everyone! I hope the first week back at school was exciting!
As always, ZGAS is committed to helping you achieve your academic and professional goals. We often invite professionals from top firms and bring you a variety of valuable informative events.
For this semester’s opening ZGAS has put together an event that speaks for itself - “How Did You Get That Offer?” This was a terrific opportunity to gain insight into an intricate job hunt process from the students who received internships and full-time offers from the Big Four, investment banks and other top companies.
During the event panelists emphasized the importance of attending ALL recruiting events on campus and coming prepared with the in-depth research about the company. Avanti Sandhir mentioned that strong and energetic presentation pitch is extremely important to stand out from the crowd of applicants. Alexandra Vilamar encouraged students to keep up a strong academic performance, as it is one of the first deciding factors of you application. Shahbaz Rajwani pointed out the importance of staying positive no matter what your initial results are. Know what you want, let your academic performance speak for itself, work on presenting yourself as the best candidate possible, customize your approach to each company, follow up, and you will stand out from the crowd!
I hope you were able to make it to the panel, and are now prepared to tackle the rigors of the recruiting process with clear direction and more confidence.
Stay tuned and check back often; a lot of exciting things are coming up just around the corner!
