CFEM Adds Manager of Career Development
CFEM recently hired a new professional to focus on Master in Financial Engineering students’ career and professional development. Elizabeth Fitzpatrick assumed the role of Manager of Career Development to help FEs jump start their careers and assist them in achieving their professional goals. “Hiring Liz is a testament to ORIE’s and CFEM’s dedication to assisting FEs with the job search and preparing them for their careers”, said Dr. Victoria Averbukh, CFEM Director. Ms. Fitzpatrick will spearhead CFEM’s existing professional development efforts and create new programs to assure that the Cornell FE program produces the talent that remains in high demand by the financial industry. She will assure that no student will be left without proper preparation for interviews and networking, and that all of our FEs will have a balanced combination of quantitative and soft skills.
As a former Wall Streeter, Ms. Fitzpatrick is more than qualified to take on the role of Manager of Career Development. Liz joins Cornell after three years on Wall Street working for J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. She was a member of J.P. Morgan’s intensive two year rotational Wealth Management Analyst program focusing on project management and internal consulting initiatives. Upon completing the program, Liz became an Associate in Corporate Compensation supporting firm wide global Technology and Corporate Finance. As an undergraduate, she worked as a Tour Captain for Saint Joseph’s University Department of Admissions. She is ecstatic to return to her passion for higher education.
Aside from her professional career, Liz has participated competitively in Speech and Debate with the New York Forensics League and thoroughly enjoys networking and meeting new people. In her spare time, Liz loves to travel, go to the theatre, exercise, and spend time with her friends and family.
