04/29/2020 – 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM (Reserve a spot at this event)

Where:

Ernst & Young LLP
One Jericho Plaza
Suite 105
Jericho New York 11753

Agenda:

Meeting will begin promptly at 6:30 and end at 8:30. Members can begin arriving at 6:00 pm for unstructured networking.

TOPIC: How’s your pitch? There is nothing more important than the moment someone says to you, “Tell me about yourself.” “Ummm…,” is not an acceptable answer.

Come prepared with a written 90 second introduction and we will spend some time practicing and perfecting your intro which should include:

1. Who you are and what you do
2. Why you do it
3. What sets you apart from everyone else
4. How you get important things done
5. What is the benefit to the company you work for

For Networking:
Be sure to bring copies of your resume; a supply of business cards may come in handy for networking as well. Be prepared to present your elevator speech. Practice your pitch and try it out with your friends at FENG - compare contrast and revise it until you hear it in your sleep. This platform skill will serve you long after you land your next assignment.

Alumni members are encouraged to attend this meeting and participate in the discussion - it is a great way to give back to the group, and to maintain and build your network.

Refreshments will be served. Please bring your name badge. Dress code is business casual

Directions

The office is one of two buildings in a complex located at the intersection of the Long Island Expressway and Jericho Turnpike. Be sure to go to the building furthest east.
