"Thank you for organizing the coffee talk with Betty Jamgotchian. We had a very insightful conversation about law, business, professional development and more. I would encourage more coffee talks with professionals... it's always pleasing to hear from successful people and to learn from their experiences." - Arsen Der-Aprahamian, APS Member & Mentee
"Thank you for coordinating this awesome program! It was a pleasure to meet Betty and the group at the Capital One Cafe the ideal environment to host this meeting. As I am at the start of my career, Betty answered many of my questions regarding law school, work-life balance, and different phases of her career in the field. It was helpful to learn about her journey in immigration law, as that is the area of law I aim to practice. The other mentees also shared advice on seeking employment in the current professional climate and the important of building strong connections. Overall I am very happy to have participated in this meeting and I look forward to staying in touch with each member of the group." - Aleen Mankerian, APS Member & Mentee "I had a great time interacting with the younger generation and helping them navigate their careers. Their ambition and eagerness to learn and grow was inspiring and motivating. I’m always happy to give back to our organization." - Martin Petoyan, New York Life Financial Advisor & APS Mentor
