Some members of the January Cohort put on their own “unofficial” masquerade ball as a way to blow off steam from a week of interviews (or a lack thereof). Hell was in the basement featuring cases from first year Meg Whitman, Wingspan, and National Cranberry. The ground floor was Earth and exhibited contemporary “Day of the Dead” retablos. One read: “This is the day Alice realized she was supposed to be beautiful. But she wasn’t. A little part of her died that day. From that moment on, she felt like all eyes were on her.” Purgatory was on the first floor – a.k.a. Career Services – with a empty shelf as the Job Bank and a photo studio (pictures below). In the attic, of course, was Heaven with an altar to Warren Buffett, Michael Porter’s Five Forces and money.
