From the beginning of the conference, one thing was clear, students would get out of this program what they put in. Whether their interest was in finance, marketing, technology, hospitality or medicine, the general sessions were applicable to every industry’s hiring process and expectations.
Jimmy Palumbo, founder of PivitU, joined by his wife and two sons, led the students and coaches in general sessions each day with. PivitU is a drill style educational boot camp that teaches young minds the importance of incorporating professionalism and engagement into your lifestyle from college and beyond. These interactive sessions went in depth discussing how to polish your resume and LinkedIn profile for optimal results, why thank-you notes are so important, how to prepare for interviews and behavioral questions, when and how to negotiate your salary and more.
Prior to PDC, Palumbo personally made edits and critiques to each attendee’s resume. During the conference, attendees were able to incorporate these edits along with pointers from the sessions and review from their coaches. During the last session of the conference, the most impressive resumes were pulled and presented by the students to their peers.
