Annual Finance Bootcamp

On Saturday September 10th 2016, we will host our 8th Annual Finance Bootcamp for college/high school students at the BlackRock office in San Francisco. The goal of the LIF Finance Bootcamp is to educate college and high school students on the various careers/opportunities in the finance industry and to expand the pipeline of Latino professionals.

The event offers free admission for students and includes workshops from experienced professionals on topics such as private equity, real estate and asset management.  In addition, we will offer professional development sessions to help you prepare to break into the industry. Lastly, a post-event mixer with LIF members and corporate sponsors will be held for all attendees aimed to help you build an active professional network to provide you timely career and education opportunities.
