This event gave students an opportunity to network and pursue internships or fulltime opportunities.

Two alumni, Andrea Meers, MPPA/BSBA ’13 and Darren Miller, MPPA/BSBA ’14 as well as the Manger of Accounting Controls & Processes Melanie Mattingly, made a presentation that included the skills and abilities they look for in interns. In addition they gave advice on what to do when in the workforce and discussed current events at Marathon.
