Student Engagement and Career Services are currently in the process of recruiting and selecting students to participate in the Winter 2018 NYC REALM program which will be held on Wednesday, January 11, 2018.

REALM is a full-day career shadowing experience for UB students who are interested in learning about leadership in the context of a professional setting. Students will be paired with a professional in the New York City Metropolitan area and will shadow that person for the day and will observe what leadership qualities and skills have made them successful. Please note that transportation for this program is NOT provided by UB.

This is an opportunity for students to network and develop a mentoring relationship with a professional in their desired field or area of academic interest and to learn more about the day-to-day operations of a particular industry and/or company.

To learn more about the Winter 2018 NYC REALM program, visit its UBLinked event page à
