Financial Services Panel Report

October 26, 2011


By Alex Hess, Graduate Ambassador

The annual Financial Services Panel-Ask the Professionals event hosted by the School of Management Career Services and the National Association of Black Accountants had another successful turnout. Mason Alumni and professionals representing: First Financial Group; Deloitte & Touche; Swart, Lalande & Associates; Inter-American Development Bank; Duff & Phelps; and KPMG, discussed the importance of developing public speaking experience, focusing on a specialty, and coordinating efforts with legal professionals. Speakers also emphasized the importance of networking in a competitive finance and accounting environment. One of the greatest takeaways was that there are many different career paths for the diversity of skill sets and personalities; finding a career path that suits your passion is key for long term professional success. The majority of these institutions are looking to hire the top quality talent that Mason provides.
