It’s your business: MacMurray student attends networking event – Jacksonville Journal-Courier


MacMurray College sophomore and Army Reservist Bernard McAfee Jr. had the opportunity this month to attend the Morgan Stanley Veteran Networking Event in New York City.

McAfee is a geospatial intelligence imagery analyst in the Army.

“At this event, not only was I able to network with other veterans, vice presidents and data analysts, but they even gave me their contact information — everyone was really down to earth, and it was a really diverse environment,” McAfee said.

The Veteran Networking Event is a full-day program that Morgan Stanley describes as an opportunity to explore the financial services industry, as well as the firm’s businesses and culture. Participants like MacAfee were able to network with employees and participate in a variety of workshops to help gain insight into the recruiting process and network with senior leaders.
