On February 1st, 2017, Let’s Get Ready students were treated to an Executive Tour at Facebook’s New York offices. Our College Success Program Manager Audrey Davis was on premises, and filled us in:
The students were able to tour the entire Facebook office, play with cool gadgets, and have an intimate question and answer session with at least 8 staff members representing at least 5 different departments.
Our students were extremely prepared with thoughtful and candid questions for the staff. The true highlights for the students were: signing the infamous “what’s on your mind?” wall that is filled with thousands of signatures, some even from celebrities, getting tips and resources about internships and post-grad job opportunities, and running into musician/actor Wyclef Jean.
Audrey took some pictures that are viewable below. We want to thank the good folks at Facebook for their insight and hospitality!
