The Millionaire’s Club hosted a luncheon seminar on Jan. 18 that featured students of University of Maryland’s Smith School of Business and New York University’s Stern School of Business. Mt. Hebron alumni David Niezelski, Nick Suri and Carmen Bodziak, along with Smith School senior Kyle Brown, answered questions about internships, networking and their college experience.
Co-president of the club, senior Matthew Michaels, said the goal of the seminar was to showcase students from “top tier business schools” and learn about “how they made it through their respective business journeys,” including the “path they took to find internships.”
Niezelski, a senior at the Smith School studying Finance and Economics, outlined the importance of internships to a career in business.
“Get one your freshman year, get something on your resume,” he said.
He added that in order to get internships, “It’s all about networking,” so it is important to “take every interaction seriously.”
Suri, a junior at the Stern School, agreed. “Networking is what gets you the job.”
He also suggested “staying in touch with Hebron alumni.”
Brown, a senior at the Smith School studying Finance and Accounting, noted that firms give preference to former interns. It is therefore important to make connections and “follow-up with people,” she said.
The Millionaire’s Club is an organization “focused on financial education,” according to the club’s secretary, senior Sara Wunette. Students participate in activities such as the Stock Market Game and the Personal Finance Challenge, as well as organize fundraisers like Viking Strong for Hurricane Relief.
