2013 Student Testimonies
Alejandra Iberico-Lozada – MBA 2015
Attending NSHMBA was an incredible opportunity. I had the chance to network with both young professionals and experienced experts in my field of interest, and as an added benefit helped me get a better feel for the culture of the organizations I was targeting. The companies in attendance were easy to talk to and took us very seriously. I walked into it looking for conversations and network connections, quickly secured interviews, and it looks like I will receive a formal internship offer soon. I would recommend the conference to anyone who is looking to connect with the companies serious about recruiting young dynamic professionals. It is a wonderful occasion to grow in visibility, put into practice the interviewing/networking skills and show off what Fisher has to offer. Thank you Fisher for your support!
Miriam Perez – MBA 2014
The NSHMBA 2013 conference at San Antonio, TX this week was an incredible opportunity to network and interview with some of the fastest growing Fortune 500 companies. It was my second year at NSHMBA, which only enriched the experience as it was a more familiar process for me. I could notice how NSHMBA is a large platform but brings a sense of intimacy to the experience. The team at Fisher does an absolutely wonderful job to set you up for success among an outstanding pool of candidates. If you are a Fisher Graduate Latino Association member, this is an opportunity you do not want to miss.
Doris Grillo – MBA 2015
As part of the Fisher Graduate Latino Association, I had the opportunity of attending the 25th NSHMBA Conference in San Antonio TX. This was the first time I attended a national conference focused on the professional development of MBA students. During the conference I had the opportunity to network with many companies whose business practices are aligned with my career goals and interests. The conference’s career expos was a very effective platform for meeting potential employers and learn more about different career opportunities that I may have not considered before. I had the opportunity of getting two interviews for summer internship positions in well-respected companies. I also had the opportunity to share the experience with other MBA students from Fisher, giving us the chance to learn and support each other in our career growth. After the attending the NSHMBA conference, I feel that I am more prepared for my internship job search. I am looking forward for the conference next year as I am confident that it will be a key component for my full time job search.
2012 Student Testimonies
Daniela Matos, MBA Class of 2013
I had a great experience at the 2012 NSHMBA Conference. This was my first time attending a large conference and I was not quite sure what to expect. I was very impressed with the level of organization and support provided by employers. I had the pleasure to interview with Abbott Nutrition and Mead Johnson Nutrition. I also had the opportunity to network with several organizations such as Johnson & Johnson, Dr. Pepper (Snapple Group), etc.
I am so glad for the opportunity to attend the event, and I am looking forward to the NSHMBA conference in 2013! Thank you for your support!
2011 Student Testimonies
Alison Guzman, MBA Class 2011
I’ve attended the National Society for Hispanic MBAs National Conference two years in a row and have yet to be disappointed. I’m always amazed by the number of employers (over 300) and the great workshops and social events NSHMBA plans for the weekend. I’ve personally enjoyed interacting with current Fisher students, alumni and employers from across the nation. Each time I’ve gone to the conference, I received 1-2 interviews. I also took advantage of the career workshops to improve my resume and interviewing skills. Overall, I’ve found the NSHMBA conference to be rewarding, insightful and fun!
Daniel Bueno, MBA Class 2012
In October we had the opportunity to travel to Chicago for the National Society of Hispanic MBAs conference and Career Expo were more than 200 companies attended the event. It was a good opportunity to learn about many different companies and network with many employers. This was the first Career Expo I attended during my time in graduate school and was able to learn more about these recruiting events and how to use your time effectively. There were more than 3,000 students attending the career event so it is crucial to prepare ahead of time and to know what companies you want to visit first. Each company has several spots for interviews for the next day but they are taken very fast so you need to plan strategically and do your research prior to coming to the event.
We traveled to Chicago with the Fisher Latino Graduate Association, so it was also a great time to get to know all of its members and learn more about each other. I really enjoyed my time in Chicago and I think I was able to take a lot from that experience.
Esteban Crespo, Class 2012
Attending the National Hispanic Society MBA Career Fair helped me network with different companies that otherwise I would not have been able to. I had the opportunity to network with different people that work in different fields. This event allowed me to learn about what many of these companies do and what they look for when recruiting for talent, all of which will help me in my internship search. I am currently in contact with some of these people and I now have a better understanding of what to do going forward. I had a great time in Chicago this year and I am definitely looking forward to do it again next year.
