One of Long Island's "10 Coolest" speaks to students on "Interviewing and Networking". The event, sponsored by the Molloy Business Clubs, was truly an educational and empowering presentation for the attendees. Karin's wit and wisdom from her life experiences in marketing, branding, investing, charitable giving and parenting were inspiring. Karin's advice for the students - developing your own personal brand, surrounding yourself with a board, executing social media plans, and the importance of networking everywhere are strategies the students will have for life.
