In this Season of Thanks...

"Philanthropic support from Fuqua alumni is invaluable to so many current students. Despite all that Fuqua has to offer, financial limitations can often be the deciding factor when selecting a business school. Many of my classmates may have chosen to attend another school had it not been for the generous support of alumni. I am extremely grateful for all of Fuqua's philanthropic gifts and for the opportunities they provide for me and my classmates."

We asked the alumni above celebrating a birthday today, November 17, "Where are you now?"

Here's what they said..



Preparing for Your Next Performance Review

When it comes to performance reviews, employees often spend a disproportionate amount of time thinking about how to ask for more money or get that promotion. In so doing, they miss an opportunity to think more deeply about what they really want from their career, how to leverage their strengths, and how to include their boss in the conversation.


BlueSteps Webinar and Executive Career Guide

BlueSteps recently hosted a webinar on "Executive Search and Your Networking Strategy." Fuqua alumni may access a recording of the webinar, as well as the Association of Executive Search Consultants Executive Career Guide.
