Year-Up Participants Get Valuable Tips During Morning At Babson
Babson’s Center for Information Management Studies—better known as CIMS—and Boston Society for Information Management (SIM) held a Year Up ‘Class Field Trip’ today in Knight Auditorium. About 100 young people participated in a workshop to learn:
- About Babson from undergraduate admission dean Grant Gosselin,
- The meaning and value of networking and interviewing for a job from undergrad career development director Megan Houlker,
- The “principle of objectivity” from chief diversity officer Elizabeth Thornton.
The all-morning event was moderated by CIMS director Kavin Moody.
