How do I become a member of FIG?
Prospective members can fill out this form. We will add you to our GroupMe where we send information about our upcoming events and members can ask the executive board any questions. We also have a newsletter, which you can subscribe to here. Links to all of our social media pages and upcoming events are available on our Linktree. All majors are welcome.
How will FIG help me in my career?
When we host speaker events, members will learn more about a business professional’s daily life at work, plus the inside scoop on the journey they took to get there. Members will network with established business professionals and recruiters as well. This will build your network and develop connections that will help advance your career.
We also offer mock interview sessions, often hosted by recruiters who are actively searching for interns and full-time employees. These sessions allow you to work on your interviewing skills and get your foot in the door during the application process. Recruiters will be able to put a face to the names on their applications.
