On Friday, February 11, Firsthand held its first annual MBA Virtual Career Fair. The fair was geared toward first- and second-year MBA students looking to prepare for and find internships and full-time positions. The fair allowed students to connect with top employers, and included a keynote speech by PrimeGenesis Chairman George Bradt; a panel event focused on international student job-search issues; a career paths panel discussion, which featured prominent executives in the banking, tech, health care, and e-commerce sectors; and a fireside chat about the all-important consulting case interview.
In addition, the fair included a panel event focused on sustainable careers in consulting. The panelists included consultants from Infosys, L.E.K., and McKinsey, and the discussion focused on companies making an impact when it comes to ESG, and how to find and prepare for roles that focus on ESG. Below, you can watch the Consulting Careers in Sustainability Panel Discussion from our Virtual Fair in its entirety.
Later this week, we'll be posting videos of the other panels and discussions from our Fair, so check back then.
Next week, Firsthand will be hosting its second annual Women in STEM Virtual Career Fair. The fair will provide women studying science, technology, engineering, or math or already in STEM roles with the opportunity to meet with employers, find new and exciting jobs, learn career lessons, expand their professional networks, and engage with event sponsors.
