SOM NYC Alumni Group Hosts Career Management Event!

Entitled "Career Planning in Turbulent Times" and generously sponsored by SOMAA, the event drew 35 alumni spanning classes from 1979 to 2000. Strickland Group consultants provided insights to attending SOM alumni on a range of topics, isuch as assessment of personal and professional career choices and navigating the uncertainties of the current job market. The Strickland Group also offered all alumni attending the opportunity for a follow-up, one-on-one counseling session.
