Hi, my name is Jarrett Turetsky and I'm a second year NBA candidate at the robert, a smith school of Business. One of the things I'm going to talk to you about right now is the alumni network at smith. It's one of the unsung differentiators that makes smith so great, so unique and so impactful as we embark on this journey to grow ourselves personally and professionally. Um when you enter business school, you're very focused on your academics and your extracurriculars. Um but it's really important to make sure that your networking and the alumni network is extremely accessible here at smith and it's one of the things that helped shape my journey and help me get questions answered that I didn't have answers to. So we have over 20,000 alum of the smith school of Business all around the world and I truly mean that all around the world at different companies, different positions, different industries, if you have a company that you're interested in, chances are there's a smith alum who's there and we're going to help. Next thing is that we have a saying here at smith called Terps helping Terps, that's kind of like our way to pay it forward. So when you reach out to an alum, they're gonna help you and engage with you, because when they were students, they were reaching out to alum who helped them. So it's a really exciting thing and I know that when I graduate and I met a company and someone reaches out to me, I'm gonna remember terms helping terms, because it's something that makes our alumni network unique and incredibly important and relevant to your journey. So I am a huge proponent of networking with alum because of the fact that it helps us not only get questions answered, but it may be the reason that you're able to land an awesome job because you made a great impression. So if there's one thing I can say is that the alumni network at Smith is phenomenal, they're eager and willing to help, and they are wealth of knowledge, helping you guide yourself on your journey throughout your business career.
