BIC Sponsors NYC's Most Epic Networking Event

1/23/2018 Unknown 0 Comments

On a Friday night in mid-January, BIC spent some time at the Irving Plaza music venue chatting with ambitious young professionals as a sponsor of the 2018 HustleSummit. The event was hosted by FindSpark, an online and offline community dedicated to setting up every young professional for career success and connecting employers to top, diverse early career talent.

A highly motivated crowd networked with reps from companies such as TEKsystems, Eileen Fisher, Grey, KBS, CB Insights, Droga5, Yelp, BetterCloud, Peace Corps, Brandwatch, Macmillan and IPG Mediabrands. The second floor featured a Mentorship Zone with over 30 mentors where participants could practice their pitch, get resume and portfolio feedback, and hear "war stories" from the trenches. That's where young professionals met BIC Program Specialist Marlene Leo and Program Director Nancy R. Tag who suggested that they turbo-charge their next career move with a Master of Professional Studies from BIC.
