A Pirate's Path: Career Journeys & Lessons Learned

Career paths aren't always straight, but they sometimes lead to treasure. Explore how fellow Pirates charted their career courses after graduation. See how they met obstacles and objections with fierce Pirate perseverance and created opportunities that didn't first exist. Watch how unexpected twists and unconventional paths brought them to career treasure. Their stories will be interesting and inspirational, and you'll walk away with great insight that you can utilize from the lessons they learned from their journeys. 

 How does a Pirate with degree in Biology wind up in banking? Join us as we learn about Matt Slate's '96 unexpected (and unplanned) journey from ECU's Howell Science Complex to his 24-year career to banking - first with Moody's Investor Service and now with Bank of America. Learn how he blends his analytical skills with his passion for building relationships, and how he leverages both to be the Managing Director & Senior Trader, Global Credit and Special Situations, Bank of America Securities.
