On September 15th, ACP was joined by Bloomberg Industry Group for a LinkedIn Live event. Bloomberg Industry Group, an affiliate of Bloomberg L.P., was originally founded in 1929 as The Bureau of National Affairs (BNA) to provide legal, tax, and regulatory stakeholders with proprietary news, headnoted court decisions, and industry best practices. Today, Bloomberg Industry Group empowers professionals in government, tax and accounting, and law with expertise, industry knowledge, content, and technology, enabling them to take decisive action and make the most of every opportunity.
The panel featured four guest speakers from Bloomberg Industry Group: Kevin Cridge, a U.S. Army Veteran and an Account Executive in Corporate Government Affairs; Justin Massy, a U.S. Air Force Veteran and a Tax Law Analyst and Associate; Elizabeth Moran, Director of Talent Acquisition; and Emily Verwee, a Senior Product Manager at Bloomberg. They discussed their paths into the corporate sector and how they navigated their transition. Additionally, they provided insights on how to approach business leaders, understand company benefits, leverage transferable skills, and successfully get your foot in the door. The event concluded with a live Q&A session with the virtual audience.
