Interested in pursuing a career in financial services? On October 6th, members of CFA Society New York’s Young Leaders Group (YLG) will host a virtual speed networking event to meet with undergraduate students from Baruch College. Over the course of an hour, students will have the opportunity to meet in small groups with industry professionals and learn about the range of career paths across investment and wealth management. Virtual breakout sessions will give students the opportunity to hear from multiple YLG members and network over the course of the evening.


Students will have the opportunity to meet and network with members of the Young Leaders Group and learn about the variety of career paths across financial services. Operationally, students will be broken out into Zoom groups of 6-8 and have ~10 minutes to speak with the YLG representative(s), before rotating together to the next representative(s).
