Bookbag to Briefcase Sponsored by BB&T is our lecture series with professional presentations and interactive workshops to help students prepare for life after St. Mary’s.
About the 2018 Lecture Series
Each month, students of all class years will have the opportunity to connect students with industry experts for small group lectures on a wide variety of professional development topics throughout the fall and spring semesters. Topics vary but include financial literacy to workplace etiquette and beyond. Some presentations may focus on specific student populations. Sample topics include:
- Establishing Credit
- Personal Budgeting
- Understanding Insurance
- Navigating the Federal Employment Application Process
- Steps to a Successful 100 Days
- Interview Prep
- Being an Agent of Social Change in the Workplace
Students who attend all three fall lectures will have the opportunity to return to campus early for a January networking event with the St. Mary’s Alumni Council.
