“… just got 250,000 shares at 18 1/4 from Janson, think I’ll pull twice that at 18 1/2 outta the California pensions. We got close to half a million shares in the bag.” -Ollie, Wall Street
Mergers & Inquisitions writes, “No area in finance has been glamorized as much as trading. Right after Wall Street was released in 1987, financiers everywhere aspired to be the next Gordon Gekko – or at least one of his cronies. But is it really that cool to be a trader? What do you do in sales & trading and how is it different from investment banking? What about breaking in?” Read the full article here: http://www.mergersandinquisitions.com/all-about-sales-trading/.

The CCI is excited to announce the launch of Handshake, a brand new platform for Middlebury College students. Handshake is replacing MOJO and offers more job and internship opportunities, a broader range of employers, and more fields. In Handshake you can:
- Find internship and employment opportunities based on your career interests and goals.
- Discover when employers come to campus for informational sessions and/or interviews.
- Connect with alumni and employers.
- Learn about events and programming in your field of interest.
- Schedule an advising appointment.
How do I access Handshake?
Visit middlebury.joinhandshake.com and login with your Middlebury ID and password. You already have an account – now you just need to activate it.
Note: for alumni who graduated on or before May 2016, click “sign up for an Account” on the bottom left.
What should I do first?
Completing your profile in Handshake is more important than ever! Because Handshake is customized for your preferences, an incomplete profile means an incomplete system. It means you won’t receive tailored recommendations for opportunities, events, or employers. The CCI has migrated some of your basic information (name, graduation year, major, etc.) but you want to make sure to complete your profile, including your career interests
What do I do if some of my profile information is incorrect?
Much of your information is brought over from the Registrar’s Office. Therefore, if anything is incorrect (i.e. major, graduation date, etc.), we recommend contacting them directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Handshake is easy-to-use and even has a mobile app. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact our Technology Coordinator, Susan Sheets, at email@example.com.

You’re about to start a summer internship and you want to make the most of it. Check out this great article that highlights 10 things you can do to make the most our of your experience:
- Create a Positive First (and Ongoing) Impression: The endgame here is to gain a professional reference, obtain a letter of recommendation or blurb on LinkedIn and have a quality resume entry. You earn these through punctuality and presenting a professional appearance each day.Be careful what you wear. Yes, it’s summer. But before you leave the house, remember that you are not going to the beach or sunbathing on the campus quad. If you are not certain about the dress code, ask your boss or someone in HR.Keep your workspace clean and organized, and don’t be seen texting or using technology for personal purposes while on the clock. Updating your Facebook status can wait until you get home. (Also see Tip #8)
- Deliver: You want to make sure that you complete any assignments, whether easy or complex, by the deadlines. “The dog ate my homework” (or its digital version) will not resonate here.
- Don’t be High Maintenance: You obviously want to do a good job. Try to take notes on what is expected of you from the outset. When questions arise while you are performing a task, don’t ask your supervisor questions every two minutes. To the extent possible, “bank” your questions and move on to the next part. Then, before the deadline, present your questions in batch mode in order to be able to complete the assignment correctly

We were fortunate to have Emily join us for this informal occasion to learn about her student days as an IGS major and transition to the Army and adapting her liberal arts education to military life. Emily is currently the CEO and co-founder of Sword & Plough, her upcycling company that re-purposes military surplus into specialty bags and other products, with a mission to strengthen civil-military understanding. She talked about the similarities and differences of military and civilian management positions and briefly reviewed different career path options in the military.
