8th Annual

  1. 1. Career Development Center 8th Annual Week on Wall Street December 18-21, 2006 Week on Wall Street is a week-long event that provides Darden Business School students with an exceptional opportunity to learn more about careers on Wall Street. During this week, students pursuing positions in investment banking and finance travel to New York City to attend final presentations with some top financial institutions. The scheduled presentations, which are for Darden students only, are set up via the Darden Career Development Center (CDC). For any student interested in a summer internship in investment banking or finance, attending this event is strongly encouraged, as most participating banks will create their closed interview lists at the end of this week. WHAT TO EXPECT Event Overview Each day during the Week on Wall Street four to five company presentations will take place. It is strongly advised that you do not try and attend all events. Rather, you should create your own schedule based on the companies in which you are most interested and have developed the best relationships with via networking. Three weeks prior to the Week on Wall Street you will be asked to sign up for the presentations that you plan to attend. This sign-up information is important for the banks to have in order to gauge interest and meet security requirements. In addition to the formal company presentations organized by the CDC, numerous “targeted events” and/or informational interviews will also take place during this week. These activities are set up solely by the banks and may or may not conflict with other activities happening during the week. The CDC does attempt to minimize conflicts by coaching companies interested in hosting targeted events on the best times to do so. However, there will likely be conflicts as a result of the many activities happening during the week. As mentioned before, you are in charge of your schedule and will need to plan the week according to your personal objectives and priorities. Evaluating the Banks There are many new insights you can gain from visiting the bank’s offices and seeing their employees in action. Week on Wall Street gives you this unique opportunity. As much as the banks are evaluating you, keep in mind that this is your final chance to evaluate the firms. Some things to think about during each presentation and event include:  How did the company differentiate itself?  How many alumni were present?  Did they do or say anything unique?  How do people dress and interact around the office?  Did I connect with individuals present during the visit?  How is the office decorated/furnished? What does that tell you about the culture?  Is the firm excited about hiring Darden students? EVENT SCHEDULE The table below provides the schedule of presentations and events for the 2006 Week on Wall Street. Presentation dates and times are given, along with locations for each event. In addition, a confirmation of the business lines attending each presentation and formally recruiting students is included. Week On Wall Street Guide Page - 1 Revised: 5/12/2010

It is important not to wait for the last minute as the holiday season in NYC is particularly busy, and hotels and flights fill up fast. The section below provides some suggestions for managing trip logistics. Due to heightened security measures, check in time for each company visit will require approximately 10 minutes. Plan on arriving to the building lobby 10 minutes before the scheduled start time of each event. Late arrivals will not be admitted as we will travel to each event as a group. If you will not arrive more than 10 minutes before an event, plan on proceeding to the next meeting. As a Darden community in respect to the participating firms we cannot tolerate late arrivals for these meetings. Also, please travel lightly and do not bring your luggage or large bags as this would slow down security clearing process. Getting/Staying to NYC There are many options for getting to NYC from Charlottesville. The Charlottesville airport has direct and connecting flights to NY. The Richmond and DC airports also have frequent flights which are typically cheaper than flying from Charlottesville. Other alternatives include taking the train (estimated six hour trip), bus (estimated ten hour trip) or car (estimated seven hour drive). When planning your accommodations, it is suggested that you arrange to stay in Manhattan - given all the events will be happening in the city. For those needing a place to say, the following websites may prove helpful:  www.hotels.com  www.priceline.com  www.expedia.com Travel Around the City Once in NYC, you can easily get around the city via the subway or taxi. It is suggested that you print and take a NY subway map with you for the trip. You can access this information via: www.mta.nyc.ny.us Week On Wall Street Guide Page - 4 Revised: 5/12/2010
  5. 5. Career Development Center Taxis are also a good alternative for getting around the city.
