On Saturday, October 26th, Ascend New York Metro Student Affairs hosted their inaugural Mentoring Circle event at Deloitte & Touche’s headquarters at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in Midtown Manhattan. Opening the Mentoring Circle, Andrew Mahabir, Manager at Deloitte & Touche’s East Enterprise Risk Services Practice, delivered a keynote address where he encouraged students to take advantage of the breadth of opportunities offered through Ascend. In addition, he provided invaluable career / professional development advice.

After the opening remarks by Andrew, students in groups of no more than four had the chance to candidly ask professionals for career advice. There were three thirty-minute sessions, where students had the opportunity to speak with a different mentor at each session. Students were encouraged to drive the conversations within the groups, for a more enriched experience.

To cap off the event, students and mentors had the opportunity to network with one another, over lunch. Overall, about 20 mentors and 80 students were in attendance at this year’s New York Metro Ascend Mentoring Circle. Students from Baruch College, Fordham University, Pace University, and St. John’s University (along with students from other schools), were joined by mentors at this event. The mentors ranged from Associates to Partners, representing various firms such as BBVA Corporate & Investment Bank, Swiss Re, Deloitte, PwC, EY and KPMG.
