'Wall Street Day' Slated

Undergraduates will have an opportunity to learn about careers in financial services from some of the field's most successful people when Boston College hosts its first "Wall Street Day" on Nov. 6 in the Lower Campus Dining Hall Heights Room beginning at 1 p.m.

Sponsored by the Boston College Wall Street Council in cooperation with the Career Center, the event will feature council members speaking on various aspects of financial services and possibilities for employment. Students, faculty and guests also will be able to visit informally at a 6 p.m. reception.

The event's opening seminar, "The World of Wall Street," will provide an overview of the field. From 2-6 p.m., students will have a choice of concurrent sessions: Some will explore specific elements of financial services, such as investment banking and capital markets, while others focus more on career-related topics: "What To Expect Your First Year" and "How To Market Your Skills On Wall Street," for example.

"The Wall Street Council's work for this event reflects BC alumni's commitment to help today's students find their career path," said Career Center Director Frank Fessenden. "'Wall Street Day' also represents a chance for the University to build some important relationships in the financial services industry."
