Frankel shares career advice on campus

Differentiate yourself, take more risks, and remember that hard work is only the baseline for success. These were some of the nuggets of advice Lois Frankel ’73 imparted to a packed Campus Center auditorium in an Oct. 6 talk.

The presentation by the internationally acclaimed author of Nice Girls Don’t Get the Corner Office: 101 Unconscious Mistakes Women Make That Sabotage Their Careers was part of the Ernst and Young Lecture Series, funded by Robert Feinberg ’78.

Audience members filled the seats and lined the steps of the auditorium to hear Frankel, whose Corporate Coaching International has prepared hundreds of Fortune 500 company executives for success.

In a first for the Oswego Alumni Association, the talk was streamed live to alumni all over the nation and world via the Internet.

During her October visit, Frankel spoke in a Women’s Studies class through the Alumni-in-Residence program and participated in her first meeting as the newest member of the Oswego College Foundation Board of Directors.
