Students in the WHHS Scholars Program learned what is really means to “work on Wall Street.” They first attended a presentation led by a former Wall Street executive, with experience in information technology, compliance, and subsequently day trading. Her informative lecture addressed the diverseness of jobs in the financial sector, as well as the qualities, skills, and education they require. Students were advised to start becoming more cognizant of their own social media footprints, and to consider their personal strengths and weaknesses as they contemplate career options. The presentation was followed by a walking tour, where students heard about the origins of Wall Street, while standing in front of the historic Stock Exchange building and in view of George Washington’s statute at Federal Hall. And, of course, they stopped to see both the “bull” and “lady” statues, now permanent fixtures in this historic New York City area.
