Thanks for inviting me to your class. I look forward to sharing the BNY Mellon story with you today I welcome questions as we go through the presentations – more interactive the better.
Alexander Hamilton founded The Bank of New York in 1784, making BNY Mellon the oldest continuously operating financial institution in the United States. Hamilton’s vision structured a nation, created a financial system, and laid the foundation for a modern economy.
Hamilton The history of the United States Military Academy can be traced to fortifications constructed on the West Point of the Hudson River during the American Revolutionary War in 1778. Following the war, President Thomas Jefferson signed legislation establishing the United States Military Academy (USMA) on the site in 1802. In 1817 the Academy was transformed by the appointment of Sylvanus Thayer who drastically reformed the curriculum. The original owner of the land at West Point was a General Stephen Moore of North Carolina. The Continental Army occupied his land for twelve years until Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton authorized the purchase of the land for $11,085 in 1790
Hamilton argued the need for a military academy in the Federalist papers. He also outlined the curriculum for a military academy Hamilton structured the Treasury Dept. as the first Treasury Secretary arranged for the Bank of NY to provide the country with the first loan – establishing the country's credit and econ independence and spurring nationwide development.

At the foundation of the Career Quiz project was the goal to create a candidate experience that not only delights, but also demonstrates that BNY Mellon is invested in helping people find the right role our company. Leveraging our digital-first approach, we worked with the Global Talent & Development team to create a tool that helps to engage candidates and find the right fit through a simple and informative online experience. Through a series of eight progressive questions, a candidate is asked to consider different workplace scenarios that tease out their strengths. Upon completing the quiz, each candidate receives a branded badge that identifies them with one of 10 personas. The personas show BNY Mellon as creative and playful, yet insightful, because they fit each individual. Sample personas include: Investment Ace, Tech Wizard, Prospecting Pro, Global Markets Maven, to name a few. With badge in hand, quiz takers are then are presented a list of recommended roles that link to open positions aligned with that role. After a soft launch of the quiz with the Summer Analyst Program, the Career Quiz went live on bnymellon.com on August 17th. Thus far: 51% Completion Rate (Tot. 795) Top personas: 13% Branding Champion, 13% Investment Ace, 7% Tech Wizard, 7% People Person Most viewed recommended roles: Analyst, strategist, sales/relationship manager Careers Quiz page is a top 30 page (visits)

It takes just 1/10 of a second for someone to make a decision about you! Both in-person and now in social media, we must be very aware what first impression we want to communicate.
We work with our client-facing team to determine what is the best way to share company related information on their personal profiles.
Do you follow your company’s social sites? How do you engage with your company’s social media? What content are you most likely to engage with? What content enhances your personal brand?
We work with LinkedIn and they have shared a few tips: Adding a profile photo makes your profile 7x more likely to be found in searches Having your 2 most recent positions makes your profile 12x more likely to be found Users with complete profiles are 40 times more likely to receive opportunities through LinkedIn 85% of all jobs are filled via networking & social networking Not only for employment however, LinkedIn sees 85% of it's page view activity around content, therefore it is very important to represent yourself professionally, share relevant content, thought leadership, updates from your network, and begin to publish your own long-from posts on LinkedIn's publishing platform to elevate your professional brand!
With the popularity of the musical Hamilton and it’s nomination for 11 Tony Awards, we used the voice of Hamilton to humanize our brand and bring some “fun” to our voice During the Tonys we were live tweeting in Hamilton’s voice from our corporate channel Who could have asked for a more exciting tie to our brand – than one of the most-awarded Broadway musicals!
