    Hey bSmart ladies!

    Is there anyone interested in a career in Finance or in Business in general? Is there anyone who currently works in Finance?

    Iโ€™m calling out everyone who would want to meet up one day in NYC to talk about our experiences. We will talk about why we became interested in Finance, how each of our recruitment processes were like, and much more. This is an opportunity to learn more and to mentor others!

    Please comment below if you would be interested! Once I get a good idea of how many people are interested in attending, I could set up a date and location!
