Recently, Julie spoke at a ‘Women in Business’ conference at NYU’s undergraduate Stern program. She discussed a range of topics with the students including tips for how to land your first job or internship and what to do once you’ve landed that job.  Tips included dressing appropriately (i.e. no flips flops!), listening, and being helpful / cheerful regardless of the assignment. The students asked great questions including ‘what do you wish you had learned/done when you were in College?’ and ‘what skills do you look for when hiring recent college graduates?’  Overall, it was a great experience for both the students and Julie.
