2013 – 2014 Events and Programs
Interviewing for Success Workshop: Guest Speaker Kim DiNicola, finance/marketing professional from Fidelity and Colby Parent
February 25, 2014
A few of my peers and I attended this event tonight and we were really appreciative of Kim DiNicola coming in to speak with students. Given that she has a lot of experience in the recruiting/interviewing process her words of advice and answers to our questions were extremely helpful. I wanted to give this positive feedback in the hopes that she might come back for future students next year (I am a senior).
Thanks for coordinating to bring her to campus!
