Eli Lilly & Co. (Business & Accounting) – Post #642
This program provides insight into general business concepts from accounting and marketing to interview skills and investing. We utilize multiple presenters with various backgrounds throughout the program, so each session comes with a unique tone and perspective on business. Additionally, the presenters are often young professionals who have recently completed their college education and are not too far removed from the college career exploration and selection process.
The post meets October through May at Lilly Corporate Center, usually the third Tuesday of each month from 7 to 8:30 p.m., and we offer a year-end job shadow opportunity as well.

Our meetings initially focus on the following areas of exploration: legal, finance, sales and IT. As we continue to learn about the careers most of interest to students, we may add additional areas of exploration. Each meeting offers the opportunity to hear from an individual within an area of the business. The individual will share their career journey and provide insights on skills that allow them to be successful in their roles.
