How did your week start out? Hope you enjoyed the weekend holidays, if you celebrate. This week’s email is out today because this week got off to an *interesting* start (read: Monday escaped before the morning was over)… Also, want to use this space to remind you about tonight’s talk with three current MBAs about business school, side hustles & everything in between. So excited to chat with Farah Azmi (Harvard Business School; IXORA Apparel), Lizzie Ann Jones (Rice Jones Business School; Hey Lizzie Ann) and Saniya Waghray (Wharton School of Business; Career Contessa and BollySoulDance). We’ll talk about how they manage their side hustle lives and bschool lives – would love to hear about your experiences managing both, as well! Register using the link below for the Zoom details and we’ll see you there… also check out the incredible giveaway happening on Instagram with IXORA Apparel - we’re giving away two blazers valued at $350 each: one for you, one for a friend. Step up your Zoom game with a gorgeous, signature piece from their line that’ll help you seamlessly -and stylishly- shift from work to play long after lockdown.
Are you looking to brush up on your Excel skills or pick up a few new tricks? We’re finalizing the dates with an expert instructor who is kindly presenting us two free, targeted, 30-minute sessions next week and during the last week of April, so stay tuned for more on that front (let your bschool-bound friends know, too!).
Finally, we have another exciting conference happening Friday at UCLA. The Women’s Business Connection at Anderson is putting on VELOCITY 2021 and this year they’re fully virtual. The conference never disappoints and they’ve got a great lineup yet again. All are welcome to join – check out the registration link below and don’t miss the VELOCITY-eve discussion happening Thursday night on allyship and bringing everyone along as we move Forward.
PSA: If you’re job or internship searching, companies like Aday, Pipeline Equity, Rosetta Digital are waiting to hear from you, and more are waiting to tap into our growing Resume Bank on MBAchic (scroll to “Featured Jobs” & sign up for Beta if you’re not yet inside). If you’re with a brand or organization, reach out here to find out how you can tap into our growing global network of smart, ambitious professionals.
Sending you good vibes for the week ahead!
