Hi. First of all, I wanna thank anyone who's already watched any of the other videos that I posted, but in this video I'll be addressing my career journey what I've experienced throughout business school on any advice that I have for people looking to do an MBA at Fordham or elsewhere, I'll talk a little bit about the resource is that exist at Fordham to help you within your career search. I'll also talk about some general advice that I have as someone who is going through this process. Currently, I want to place a big focus on what I will refer to here as the to ours. The first are its relationship building, and the second are is reflection. If you trust in the fees to ours, as well as what you gain from your MBA education and what you personally bring to the table, you will absolutely feel as if your career journey is a success at all times. The resources provided by Fordham's Career Development Center are key. Two pieces of advice that I have with regard to those career center Resource is our one to establish a relationship with as many career advisors as you feel will be relevant to your personal search, get to know them, set regular appointments with them and allow them to help you make the most of the process of career exploration thing. Second piece of advice I would give is right at the beginning to set alerts for yourself on all of the different forms that are available to you with career information. I set Google alerts, linked an alert and alert through Fordham's Career Path system so that I was always made aware of new job postings and opportunities as they became available. Now I've already mentioned Lincoln briefly, but Lincoln is another critical tool that I found really helpful in my own career. So if you show that you're knowledgeable and invested in your career development, there will, out of the many people you reach out to be a few really interested and engaged mentors that can help you along in your search. Throughout the course of my MBA program, I personally have completed to intern trips. I, I'm waiting to begin another internship at the start of 2021 8 during my second semester of my first year, I did a supply chain and logistics internship with a K beauty skincare company, so that was really helpful to me in gaining an inside look at what operations and supply chain look like for e commerce brand and specifically in the skincare space. My second internship was a summer internship at a digital lifestyle brand. You were really strong at what concrete results you were able to create and what numbers you might want to include on a resume. All of those suggestions really come together in the second are which I mentioned is reflection. It's really important to take time to decompress after the intensity of an internship experience, to figure out what you've learned on what skills you're going to be able to take fourth with you into your next opportunity. Ask questions on Do Do not ever doubt that you are capable of building the career and the lifestyle that you want and deserve. I hope that I've made you excited about the Fordham Gabelli School of Business.
