Do you enjoy working in an exciting and fast-paced environment, researching options, and making recommendations? Consider a career in finance!
The Forté College Fast Track to Finance Conference is a great place to start. In this virtual experience, you'll explore a multitude of financial careers, with a focus on Investment Banking and Investment Management. You will learn by "doing," strengthen your leadership skills, expand your network, and get an inside look at how the financial services industry works.
You don't need to be a finance major to attend — financial organizations need women from diverse academic backgrounds. Connect with financial leaders and recent college grads from top firms who will share why they love their career choice, along with insights on developing your personal brand, launching a finance career, and building client relationships.
The best part? It’s free to apply and the conference is free to attend!
