Big Shoulders Fund Commitment to Work Study

Our students were lucky to hear from a Work Study Partner this week. Beth Witczak, Managing Director and Head of CRA Strategy & Community Impact  at CIBC and Mike Monticello, Managing Director of CIBC were on hand to talk about skills necessary for success in this day and age.

They stressed the skills necessary for success including working hard, being on time, shaking hands, making eye contact and learning to communicate. Mr. Monticello said these skills are more important than where you go to school. Students were motivated to hear from these successful professionals. They were reminded to “look people in the eye” and turn off phones! We are lucky to have CIBC as a Work Partner and are thankful to CIBC for their time and motivating comments this week.
