The first-ever Big Picture Summit, to be held on November 7, 2015, in New York City, will offer students and their parents the latest advice on how to choose and gain admission to the right college. The Big Picture Summit will also guide students in identifying a rewarding career path and transitioning successfully from college to the workplace.
In three sessions over the course of the day, attendees will learn:
- How to win at the college admissions game
- What admission officers wish applicants knew before applying
- The admissions cycle
- Scholarships and where to find them
- How choices in high school effect choices in college
- College to career
A highlight of the Big Picture Summit will be the employer panel, giving students and their parents the opportunity to hear from hiring managers, industry leaders, and executives about the kinds of skills, education and experience they seek in new college graduates. Students will also come away with valuable tips on what they can do right now to start planning for college as well as how to thrive once they’re in college. There will also be helpful advice on managing personal finances while in school.
The Big Picture: What to Consider When Considering College Summit is being organized by College Match, a college admissions counseling firm, and 10 Steps Ahead Strategies, which helps college graduates transition into successful careers.
“We’re thrilled to be co-hosting The Big Picture: What to Consider When Considering College Summit,” said David Montesano, president of College Match. “With college admissions more competitive than ever, it’s absolutely essential that students understand the admissions process and what they can do to maximize their chances of getting in to the right school. The students and parents who attend the summit will have a significant advantage over their peers competing for the same places.”
Robin Nurse, president of 10 Steps Ahead Strategies, said: “The Big Picture Summit will give students the knowledge they need to not only get in to college, but find a satisfying career after college that builds on their skills, talents and passion. This comprehensive approach—how to succeed before, during and after college—is what makes The Big Picture Summit so extraordinary. I’m confident this event will deliver life-changing results for students and their families.”
The Big Picture: What to Consider When Considering College Summit will be held at Pratt Mansions (the Marymount School) in New York City on November 7, 2015, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. More information and tickets are available at the bigpicture.10stepsaheadstrategies.com.
