Check out the full details of the job here on Handshake. And apply now! Keep reading to learn about the experience of Hayley Howard ’17:
“When I began my job search senior year, I knew I wanted to work at a company that would offer what I loved most about Middlebury: a close-knit community, the ability to learn something new every day, and exposure to a diverse array of projects that would challenge me in different ways. I have found all of this in Cadent. Every project offers the opportunity to learn about a new industry, work with different people, and fine tune skills such as data analysis, qualitative research, and public speaking. Working at a small company has meant that I was very quickly given a lot of responsibility, such as leading components of my projects and presenting to clients at major companies. I have also been able to leverage what I learned at Midd. As an economics major, it has been particularly rewarding to apply my knowledge of economic concepts when developing a pricing strategy, or build on my experience with econometrics when analyzing a dataset. Cadent offers the opportunity for a huge degree of professional development, making it a great place to work.”

Dear Students interested in finance and business:
The Professor of the Practice Program is working hard to improve the college’s offerings for students interested in going into finance, business and enterprise more generally. In the fall we are offering the following courses:
- Accounting and Budgeting INTD 116
- Intro to Business INTD 0120
- Introduction to Finance INTD 0217
- Management and Enterprise INTD 220
- Capital Markets INTD 0320
Because we are still organizing the program, and have not publicized the courses widely, we still have significant openings in the Finance and Capital Markets courses as well as a smaller number of slots in other courses. We do not see these open slots continuing in the spring semester, or beyond, so if you are interested in taking either the finance or the capital markets course while here at Middlebury, we encourage you to consider taking them this semester.
The finance course serves as a gateway course for the higher level courses in Investments and Capital Markets, and is good preparation for those planning finance internships. We will be adding students to these courses on a first come basis, from a list of students who email us that they are interested in taking these courses. So if you are potentially interested in either of these courses you should email Vijaya Wunnava (VWunnava@middlebury.edu) as soon as possible and ask to be put on the list.
If you have any questions, about which course is right for you, feel free to contact Dave Colander (Colander@Middlebury@edu)
Check out this great opportunity. Application is here: https://goo.gl/forms/glHuNZqAFsDmHfNI2 Due date is Friday, September 14 at 11:59 pm.
• Who we are:
We are Middlebury College students from diverse backgrounds and varied academic interests who provide free consulting services to small businesses and nonprofits. Our project teams consist of six to eight students who are interested in complementing their liberal arts education with practical experience.
• What we do:
Our aim at MCG is to create a win-win scenario for clients and students. On the one hand, we strive to quickly add value to our clients’ organizations and have a strong track record to demonstrate our success. Our outside perspectives combined with our broad skill set enable us to assist clients in tackling company-specific or industry-specific problems.
