Network of Executive Women New England partnered with Bentley University to support its first-ever Management Career Conference for undergraduate students at the LaCava Conference Center in Waltham, Mass., March 1, 2013.

During the event, Hilary Carlin, director of business development for The Sunflower Group; Steve Paccone, vice president, national retail sales-specialty retail for Coca-Coca Refreshments; Sandy Pietraszek, consumer and trade solutions manager at S.C. Johnson; Amy Roy, brand research and consumer insights analyst at King Arthur Flour; Janine Dempsey, market human resource manager for Wal-Mart Inc.; and Jackie Mayer, director of grocery for Stonyfield Farm Inc., shared their career experiences and offered advice on how to best navigate the job market.

Two dozen students were eager to learn more about the industry and heighten their awareness of job opportunities. An open question-and-answer forum was followed by a networking session.

"The Management Conference was a truly valuable experience for me to interact, learn and network with some of the leading professionals in their field,” said undergraduate student Celine Yousefzadeh. "I now have a better understanding of the different career possibilities in management and how I can pursue them.”

The college outreach also provided a platform for NEW members to network with each other and foster industry relationships.

The NEW New England spring event will be held April 26, 2013 at Lombardo's in Randolph, Mass.
