Bridge - Career Jump Pilot

No votes yet
In Person
During GEW

The first Career Jump event created and run by Bridge will take place from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on November 20 in Hughes Hall.

This is a new way for students to showcase their skills to potential employers. Students will engage not in interviews, but in a hands-on activity: managing a portfolio of stocks and bonds in a fast-paced, realistic environment. There will be 30 student participants, 10 seniors, 10 juniors and 10 sophomores, who will work in teams of three.

One team will prove itself the best for the job, and receive a prize. What decides the winner? Not necessarily pure return on investment. The portfolio management competition scores teams on their overall employability, including teamwork and other skills.

Hughes Hall Trading Room

Location

Fordham University Rose Hill Campus
10458 Bronx , NY

Hughes Hall is where business lives at Fordham.

The Gabelli School moved into this building in 2012, following a renovation so dramatic that the only thing "old" that remains is Hughes' 1890s exterior.

What lies inside is a state-of-the-art center for business education.

Here you will find:

  • An in-house trading room. Learn to monitor the markets in real time.
  • 15 Bloomberg terminals. Financial data here.
  • Videoconference rooms. Interview with an overseas company by Skype.
  • A student lounge with iMacs, giant flat-screens and booth tables. Hang out and talk business. Or not.
  • Classrooms wired with recording equipment. Didn't get part of that lecture? Watch it again online from home.
  • A career center, a center for international business and an honors room.

This is the kind of building where tomorrow's business leaders get their start. With, courtesy of Hughes's traditional gray stone, a respectful nod to Fordham's history.
