This event is held twice a year and is a prime time for students to meet area bankers and to learn a little more about various positions available in the banking field in a relaxed and fun environment. ETSUBanking, Finance, Economics, Accounting and MBA students interested in a banking career should plan to attend.
Professional dress is encouraged as well as bringing a resume. You should look as if you were going to an interview. This is a wonderful occasion to meet and network with area professionals. Be prepared to speak about yourself and your interest in banking. You never know when opportunity is going to knock so make sure you are prepared to answer.
Bankers in the Classroom presents the opportunity for students to meet an area banking professional in the classroom in a more intimate environment. It allows students the chance to hear what a "typical" day in the life of the speaker is from a banking standpoint and it also exposes students to the various careers that are available in the banking field.
Students are allowed to ask questions and discuss various issues and concerns with the speaker. This is a great chance for not only students but also for area banks. It allows a representative from a bank to go out and meet future employees (and customers!) and really explain to them what banking is all about.
These events are usually held during Bank Policy class in the Spring semester.
