Discovering New Career Paths

By: Mayy Kartuma, LIST Student

On July 27, the LIST program welcomed volunteers from State Street, which is an financial services holding company, as guest speakers.

They taught as about their company and what they do, and shared their experiences and career paths. It was an excellent experience for all of us to learn about big companies like State Street and their employees' jobs, so in the future we will be able to choose the right path for our career that we like and are interested in.

Before this talk, a lot of us did not know what company we would like to work for, or what sector of the retail industry we might want to work in, but we learned about a lot of companies and what they really do. I’m sure that everyone now knows where they want to work - or at least they have some idea!
