Advice, regrets, and wisdom—there were so many great gems that were shared today. Six graduating seniors spoke about their four years at BC and echoed some common words that they wished they could tell their freshmen selves.
Here is a wrap up of all the goodies that were shared:
Try out new things and don’t be afraid to explore!
• You never know if you never try. The countless number of people and opportunities on campus are like roadsigns on your journey of finding yourself. Make sure you take notice of them or you might fall off the road!
• Do things that get you out of your comfort zone. College is the only time where you don’t have to worry about paying bills or buying a house. Take advantage of your free time in college because these four years are all about you.
Make lasting connections today, so you can set up a brighter tomorrow
• Your professors are your most valuable resources in college! Take advantage of their office hours and pick their brains. You may never know if they are the ones connecting you to your future career!
• Create long lasting relationships with upperclassmen and alumni who can mentor you.
“I regret not using the Career Center”
• Some of the seniors wished they had stopped by the career center sooner to polish up their interview skills or have their resumes more carefully critiqued.
• The career counselors are like your career cheerleaders. They are there at all times whether you are searching for a job or not.
• Even if you can’t make it to the Career Center, you can take advantage of their online resources. EagleLink and its alumni network are tools you can start taking advantage today in advancing your career search!
Make the most of your experiences
• Build your resume through experiences and internships so you can have something to talk about in your interviews.
• Go abroad! The unique experiences you gain from going away a semester are once in a lifetime. You can even apply for an advanced study grant to help fund your trip!
All in all, it is most important to stay in the moment. College is a time for you to learn, grow, and mature into the men and women of tomorrow. You get what you put in with these next four years so make the most of them!

** PIZZA WILL BE SERVED **
by Juliet Zawedde, Class of 2012
On November 4th 2010, Smart Woman Securities, a new women’s investment education organization on campus, co-sponsored a Financial Services Panel and Dinner event with Barclays Capital. They invited freshman, sophomore and junior women for an evening of learning and networking. Connecting professionals from Barclays with undergraduate women at BC is part of the many ways that Smart Woman Securities has worked to achieve its mission of providing women with extensive investment knowledge through a seminar series, mentoring initiative, and meetings with successful investors.
The evening commenced with a panel composed of analysts, as well as current Boston College seniors, Ashley Dombalis, Kari O’Neil, Minela Gacanovic, and Brianne Lynch, all of whom have accepted their full-time offers with the firm. The panelists each briefly introduced their different backgrounds and provided a brief overview of their positions within the company. They represented a variety of business lines, including, Investment Banking, Global Markets, Marketing, Compliance and Operations.
Immediately after, panelists joined the students for an intimate dinner, which they were able to share their experiences in further detail and answer specific questions about the recruitment process and what it’s like to work at Barclays. “All of the analysts I spoke to were clearly passionate about their work and Barclays itself. The best advice I took away from the event is that in order to be successful in such a challenging and fast paced career you have to be passionate about what you do,” said Amy Lipton a sophomore in the Carroll School.
The dinner also helped students differentiate Barclays from other Investment Banks in terms of its culture, internship program, and commitment to diversity. Lauren Wallace, a sophomore in the Carroll School commented, “The event gave me insight into the world of banking as well as Barclays as a firm. It was great hearing current seniors speak about their experiences over the summer, as well as analysts describe how they got where they are now. I got the sense that Barclays really cares about its employees beyond their work, and makes an effort to foster each employee’s development as a person.” Overall, the event was tremendously successful in providing undergraduate women with an introduction to the financial services industry, perspectives on applying leadership skills in the workplace, and an encouraging outlook on the extensive opportunities available to women at Barclays Capital. Special thanks to Ms. Jenny Ashley Robles, and the Barclays Diversity Campus Recruiting Team for sponsoring the event, and providing the wonderful yoga mats as giveaways!
