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 will meet October through May at Lilly Corporate Center, usually the third Tuesday of each month from 7:00 – 8:30 PM, and we offer a year-end job shadow opportunity as well.
