Recently, the Risk Management Career Development Club organized a company visit event to Bloomberg New York office. The company visit event provided Carey students with a great opportunity to obtain industry insights, learn more about career opportunities, and network with local professionals.
Applications to this event were open to both DC and Baltimore students, and the club received over 100 applications across 5 different programs at Johns Hopkins Carey Business School, including students with backgrounds in Risk Management, Finance, Marketing, Information Systems, and Business Administration. After first round resume scanning and second round interviews, 14 students were selected to participate in this event together with 9 club board members.
The event was designed to last two days: on October 24, the club organized a welcome dinner at Gigino restaurant in NYC. Professionals and alumni from Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, and PwC were invited to join the welcome dinner and share their job-seeking experience with event participants. Students were able to learn about guests’ personal career path and their journeys so far at top investment banks and Big Four accounting firms.
Students stayed at the Roosevelt Hotel for one night, and left for the Bloomberg company visit on October 25. At Bloomberg, one host from the company’s hospitality department guided students on a tour to both their Media and Terminal departments. Students were amazed by the company culture and impressed by the professionalism of Bloomberg employees. Students were later given a 30-minute terminal training in their classroom, during which a speaker from Bloomberg Business Intelligence team introduced various searching techniques to Carey students. After the training, one representative from Bloomberg campus recruiting team met with Carey students and introduced the various career opportunities and internship programs Bloomberg provides. Three Hopkins alumni also joined the info session and talked about their personal career path at Bloomberg and students were able to get their questions answered.
Students were later invited to the 29th floor of the Bloomberg building, where employees have access to a modern-designed kitchen and bird’s-eye view of Manhattan. There, we took an obligatory group pictures and networked with Bloomberg employees.
The Bloomberg company visit event linked students from two campuses of Carey Business School, and it also connected current students and alumni to valuable career resources in New York City. The Risk Management Career Development Club wishes everyone a bright future, and we appreciate all the support we gained from our student services department, club advisors, professors, and all the student participants!
