On October 26, 2015 GWWIB hosted AXA advisor, Lyle R. Yablanksy for his presentations, Backpacks to Briefcases in which he discussed how to take your collegiate experience from the classroom to the board room. Approximately 20 embers attended and it was a great opportunity for student leaders to gain valuable insight in to these common questions:


-How do I leverage the skills and experiences as a collegiate leader to a potential employer

-How do I utilize my network in a professional manner to find my next job?

-How do I stand out to potential employers during the interview process?

-Are there certain careers that are more conducive to my skills and interests than others?


Additionally, Lyle provided perception about how to continually strive towards happiness in every aspect of your life.
