As you read this, four teams of university students are diligently preparing for the Research Challenge Local Finals. Cincinnati CFA Society members are in for a treat, as we are hosting the event in Cincinnati. Now members will have the opportunity to attend the presentations and witness the incredible amount of work these students voluntarily take on.
The seven teams that entered the competition in September have been whittled down to four by a small army of volunteer report graders from Columbus and Cincinnati. Teams will have 10 minutes to present and defend their written analysis of this year's subject company, Diamond Hill. A panel of volunteer judges then has 10 minutes to question each team.
Once again this year, the CFA societies of Columbus and Cincinnati are collaborating for the Research Challenge.
HERE IS WHERE WE NEED YOUR HELP!
- "A Day in the Life" will be one of the features of the event. Local charterholders will speak about their job roles and career paths. We are in search of speakers from an array of positions, as this is designed to give participants a better understanding of the breadth of investment careers. (scheduled for 2:30-3:30PM)
- "Ask a Hiring Manager" is another of the highlights. This panel discussion is devised to inform attendees of the current state of the job market, provide tips for the job search, and allow for Q&A. (scheduled for 3:30-4:00PM)
