SUBJUCT:      The Value of GCOM 7010: Global Strategy and Systems

Commerce Career Services is so great they might even bake you a cake!

If you read my bio you will know that I went to Cornell for my undergrad. It’s a large school with about 14,000 undergrads.  How many of you go to a school of similar size or BIGGER? For those of you in the same boat, don’t you agree that it can be difficult to find help when you need it?  There were many times that I felt like I was just a number and I couldn’t get the individualized attention I really needed.  This was especially true when it came to career services.  It’s understandable that the counselors in the career services office can’t make personal connections with everyone because they have thousands of students on their watch. But for someone like me, that just doesn’t cut it!

A Mellow Meet & Greet with MSMIT

Two weeks before the Commerce Career Day (CCD), we’re all in hyper-networking mode (read: coffee chats, resume reviews, info sessions). Luckily, the MSMIT program had contacted us to plan a mixer between the three MS programs (MSMIT, MSC, MSA) last Wednesday at Mellow Mushroom on The Corner. I realized that night what we thought was a “break” from networking really was just an extension of it. Not only was management consulting firm Oliver Wyman sponsoring Mellow Mushroom’s trivia night, but we also found ourselves in the company of a dozen successful professionals in the executive MSMIT program.
