September Business Leaders Talk: Honest Career Advice from Fellow Alumni

Dr. Herbert Mayo, Professor of Finance, invited alumni Darrel Kasper and George Wunder to share their expertise and candid advice with TCNJ students on Wednesday, September 18, 2019.

Kasper and Wunder have been giving this lecture to Dr. Mayo’s students for the past six semesters, and are excited to open the information up to a larger audience. Friends for almost thirty years, both with each other and with Dr. Mayo, one of the things both wished they had access to as undergraduates was a lecture where real world experience was shared with honesty and humor.
