On March 1st, 2014, the Ascend New York Metro Chapter successfully hosted over 80 undergraduate and graduate students for the second event of the student mentoring program – workshop series.

The presenter, Lisa Ortiz is a senior campus recruiter with PwC. Prior to her role with campus recruiting, she was a client facing professional in PwC's assurance and tax practices. Lisa shared on how to power up your professional presence in order to stand out. She said, "Your resume and credential can only go so far. Companies are also looking for a personality "fit.” You need to make sure the vibe you're putting out is true to who you are.” In a recent survey of 2000 bosses, one out of every three bosses claimed that they knew within the first 90 seconds of an interview whether they would hire someone. Having a powerful professional presence is critical to stand out within the crowd.

The afternoon concluded on a sense of anticipation and excitement for the upcoming Networking Etiquette Workshop and Speed Networking event on Saturday, April 5th, 2014. We are very grateful to Lisa Ortiz, PwC Campus Recruiter, for a lively and engaging presentation, PwC for being a gracious host and a supportive partner, and the volunteers for their invaluable assistance.
