You’re heading out on what amounts to a 10-week job interview. One of your key goals (and challenges) during that time is connecting with and impressing one or more ‘bosses’ so you can secure that full-time offer.

While it’s occasionally easy to win over a new boss, more often than not it’s a challenge to gain access to and quickly understand how to support and influence busy managers and leaders. But, whether easy or hard, it’s your job to figure out how to work well with them. While there’s no silver bullet, there are clear tips and approaches to help you succeed.

In this bite-size session, Perry Yeatman, a seasoned global executive who has managed up to dozens of CEOs and senior leaders and managed hundreds of her own employees, will outline time-tested strategies for winning over any boss.

Note: This session is for first year students only as they prepare to wow at their summer internships
