Career Chat LIVE - Starting off Right: Introducing Development Programs

September 23, 2020 |

Join our employer partners, alumni, career center staff, and fellow students at Career Chat LIVE, where we will discuss development programs geared to new graduates.    Many employers offer management training programs, called “Development”, “Leadership” or “Rotational” programs.   These programs range from one to three years, and provide management or functional training in the organization’s business.
New hires often enter the program together in a “class”, offering a shared experience and team environment.    

While some programs seek certain majors, many are open to all, and often employers seek students from a liberal arts background.  The “class” may rotate through different functions, or sometimes at different locations, giving the new hires a broad understanding of the business.   The participants are generally fast-tracked for advancement in roles after the completion of the development program.  

Many students like the idea of starting with a group of other recent grads, all going through training together.    It’s a great way to make friends and can make the transition to work and possibly a move to a new city easier.  Hear from our employer partners on their development programs unique to their organizations.

We’ll be joined by:
Sean Fleming '01, Director, Contracts, BAE Systems

Kayla Galenski, Senior Talent Acquisition Consultant for University Talent, Fidelity Investments
Ian McNamara '20, Contracts Administrator, BAE Systems
David Pease, Senior Vice President/Director Talent, Diversity & Inclusion, Bangor Savings Bank
Michael Schmidt ’17, Compliance Analyst, Fidelity Investments

Dorin Thibault, Assistant Director, Employer Relations, Saint Anselm College
Sam Allen, Director, Career Programs and Technology, Saint Anselm College

Students will have the opportunity to pose questions and those who wish may speak one-on-one with our panelists in the breakout room after the discussion to continue the conversation.
