Cheers to another amazing YEOC session!
Thank you to our Young Executives for giving up a sleep filled Saturday and joining us yet again for our November 20th session. Our guests from E&Y and BEDC Fellow/YEOC mentor, Sabrina, offered engaging insights into the world of ethics. We hope that next time you are caught in an ethical dilemma, you will think back to Sabrina’s valuable photocopy video and do the right thing
The breakout team activity (Drawbridge Activity) taught us that ethics are situational and differ from person to person. This is an important fact to remember in all facets of life. Ethical behavior in the workplace can be defined by a different set of rules than in other areas of your life, so constantly be aware of your environment and the behavioral standards you are being held accountable for.
Our November session also provided Young Executives with a wealth of knowledge concerning their education. We hope students gained valuable insight to reference as they plan for their futures. (YEOC Seniors, please utilize the information and guidance provided during your workshop as you work through your college applications. Remember that the UW application deadline is Wednesday, December 15, 2010. Reach out to your mentors with any questions or need for clarification. We are here to serve you! Another important thing to note as you are completing your college applications (specifically for UW) is that you should select Business Administration as your major of choice.)
Our next session focused on Marketing is just around the corner and we are very excited to see our Young Executives bright and early on December 11th.
