What is the Emerging Professionals Group (EPG)
A decade ago, Davidson College alumni Donnie Johnson ‘00 and Vincent Benjamin ’04, founded The Emerging Professional Group (EPG) based on the belief that if they created an environment of elevated expectations, enhanced awareness, and intense preparation they could create phenomenal professional opportunities for motivated students. EPG has taken over 100 students through a development program that has prepared them for professional success after graduation. They have been blown away by the outcomes as the careers they have seen blossom have exceed their expectations. Students have landed amazing internships and full-time employment at consulting firms, investment banks, non-profit institutions, and law firms. Others have matriculated to a diverse array of graduate schools and even started their own companies as entrepreneurs. They passionately believe that IF they help you achieve your maximum career potential THEN you will help others down the road. This is what drives them.
You owe it to yourself and others to maximize the investment of time, energy, and money that is your college experience.
