Academic Night (Virtual): What’s The Big Picture? Lessons Learned from the School of Hard Knocks

Join us for the 2021 FEI Washington State Academic Night panel: What’s The Big Picture? Lessons learned from the School of Hard Knocks.  Students will hear from, and have the opportunity to network with CFOs and leaders in the fields of finance and accounting.  Panelists will cover both technical and non-technical skills that are essential to kick off your career, as well as soft-skills that will catapult you to a leader in your field.

In the past, Academic night attendees have built their contacts, secured mentors as they start their careers, and some have even been offered internships.

Don’t miss the opportunity to hear first-hand experiences from those that have made their way to the top.  Don't be afraid to get on camera, engage, and ask questions!
