Housing After College
Learn the tools you need to know--whether to rent or buy after graduating?

You will learn from a local real estate agent and mortgage expert on what questions to ask and information to gather to help make the right decisions about housing after college. Compare renting to owning, learn about the importance of credit scores, and what to look for in a new home.

Insurance
Learn about what car insurance is, what it covers, why you need it and most importantly, the information you need to determine the right coverage for you.

In this session I'll give you the "ins and outs" of auto and renters insurance. We'll go over tips on how to save money and how to find the right coverage for you when you are ready to get insurance of your own.

Growing up, my parents told me I could stay on their auto insurance plan until I graduated from college but once I graduated I needed to get my own policy. I over-paid on insurance for years, not realizing how many options I had available to me. I'll try to help you not make the same mistakes I did.

Your Next Job:  What Employers are Looking For
The job market is tight: what you need to know to ensure you are on the right track.

Today, perhaps more so than in recent past generations, the future workforce will be competing more fiercely than ever before for a very few choice positions. Unfortunately, there is no sure method of landing your desired position after college, but there are steps you can take to increase your chances.  Learn what today's employers are looking for, looking to avoid and looking to maximize.  Also, you will learn how to present yourself to your potential employer and what today's employers are looking for in employees and leaders after their first day on the job.

Keeping your Financial Balance
Establishing a powerful financial foundation for life after Fox.

What do an athlete, artist, and accountant have in common? Balance is a key component of their success. Your financial life is no different. Post Fox, you will be facing an array of financial questions (whether you know it or not):  Am I better off putting money in my company's retirement plan or accelerating my student debt payments? When I purchase a home, should I carry a 15 year or 30 year mortgage? Should I build my savings account or should I invest it? What should I carry for insurance deductibles? How do I budget my income? How you balance these decisions is critical. Any one of them will have a ripple effect throughout your entire financial life. We'll talk about these key financial decisions, how they interact, and strategies that you can immediately deploy to make powerful financial decisions.
