This summer, the 2017 Opportunity Greensboro Fellows Program cohort will have the opportunity to engage in three professional development sessions thanks to the Professional Development Series event sponsor, Stearns Financial Group. All Professional Development sessions will be held at Union Square Campus, which opened in August 2016.
For the first professional development session, the Fellows attended a young alumni panel, where panelists shared networking tips, advice on navigating the job search and life as a young professional in Greensboro, and more. A huge thank you to our panelists for taking time to engage with the 53 Fellows! The panelists included:
- Gavin Sands Stevens, Elon University
- Andreas Mosby, Greensboro College (undergrad), current third year JD-MBA candidate at Elon University School of Law
- Heather Ebert, GTCC
- Tim Leisman, Guilford College
- Keenan Smith, NCA&T
- Justin Outling, UNCG
The Fellows enjoyed hearing from each panelist and appreciated the opportunity to meet six great young professionals who all had different stories and insights to share. After the panel, Fellows were excited to put the advice into full force at their internship sites.
Thank you again to Stearns Financial Group for sponsoring this series and for our panelists – without you, this event would not have been possible!
