The Career Workshops are hosted by the Careers Portfolio. The events are aimed at teaching our members important skills when applying to summer internships. The Career Workshops cover the topics of interview prep, resume building, and networking etiquette.

Before the school year begins, PBSN hosts networking dinners to get to know the incoming class.

We host these summer dinners so students can have the opportunity to meet their future classmates as well as upper years.
After completing the career workshops, we challenge our members to put their new skills to good use. We have an interview competition where participants attempt to impress the judges with their ability to network and interview. The grand prize is an internship at Scotia Wealth Management.
