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.


As always, be sure to bring about 15 copies of your resume; a supply of business cards may come in handy for networking as well. Please polish your 2 minute presentation! Your networking time is a value added activity for you and your peers; practice your 'elevator speech' 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.

We plan on starting the meeting promptly at 6:30 PM, but attendees may begin to arrive anywhere from 6:00 PM for informal networking.


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.
