Monroe College, a national leader in urban and international education, today announced that its King Graduate School and the Greater Flushing Chamber of Commerce will co-host a Fortune 500 Career Seminar for Asian Professionals on October 29. The event will be held in Manhattan at the New York Marriott Hotel at 525 Lexington Avenue.

The career seminar, which will run from 8:00am until 9:30am, will be led by a select panel of Asian executives from Fortune 500 companies who will leverage their own journeys as Asian-American professionals to provide advice and insight for those looking to enter or advance in a corporate role.

“As members of the vibrant and diverse borough of Queens, where one out of five residents is of Asian descent, we are very proud to co-host this event and hopefully help the next generation of Fortune 500 Asian-American executives take their critical next steps on the corporate ladder,” said Evan Jerome, Vice President at Monroe College’s Queens Extension Site, who is organizing the event. “The panelists bring not only the perspective of shared heritage, but also a wealth of business acumen, enviable professional histories, and keen corporate culture insights to help event attendees succeed themselves in the highly competitive and rewarding corporate world.”
