For students interested in a career in Investment Research, sign up for the Stock Pitch/Mentor Weekend. The weekend will begin in the morning of Saturday, September 23, and end mid-afternoon Sunday, September 24.

Interested students must submit a stock pitch or bond pitch by midnight on Friday, September 22. If you would like more information and assistance putting a stock pitch together, please get in touch with the Investment Management Club (IMC).

Students will be assigned a mentor (a Johnson Alum) to meet on Saturday morning and afternoon to review and improve their investment pitch in preparation for a friendly stock pitch competition beginning Sunday Morning. Finalists will present all participating students early Sunday afternoon with a winner being announced later that day. 

This is a tremendous opportunity to prepare yourself for the upcoming interview and stock pitch competitions this fall. You can contact Rob Symington (rts32@cornell.edu) with any questions.
