Wall Street Experience applications due soon

Students interested in participating in The Wall Street Experience on Wednesday, Dec. 19 and Thursday the 20th in Manhattan, must apply by Friday, Nov. 16 at the Salisbury Center for Career Services in Trinity Hall.

Only 25 students will be selected because of space restrictions at the organizations being visited. Students from all class years and majors are encouraged to apply. Forms are available at the Salisbury Center.

On the first day, Bob Murphy, director of career services, will be joined by Associate Professor of Economics Jo Beth Mertens and Professor of Economics Pat McGuire, who will serve as guides to visits to Bear Stearns with Steve Lipman ’83, J.P. Morgan with Tom Schmidt ’88, and Lehman Brothers with Gordon Sweely ’86 and Brendan Neary ’93.

The second day will include presentations at Oppenheimer Funds with Michael Gantcher ’92, Merrill Lynch with Ted Niedermayer ’84 and James Lilly ’83, DeWitt Stern with Charlie Johnson ’77, and GVA Williams with Alex Jinishian ’76 and Cory Albrycht ’02.

Mertens will lead two mandatory preparation sessions: beginning at 7 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 25 and Sunday, Dec. 2, both in Stern 301. Students must purchase the required book for this prep course and pass the test at the completion of the prep courses in order to attend.

Those invited to participate will be responsible for getting to New York City and meeting the group at the designated time and place. Each touring day will begin at 8:30 a.m. and conclude at 5 p.m. Complete itineraries will be mailed with acceptance letters and professional dress will be required.
