A special thanks to alumnus Altair Gobo and the students who served as part of the CHSS Professional Mentor Program. The photo above is from a March 2016 meeting where students got an opportunity to learn from a mentor who also studied at Montclair State University.

Gobo was born in Jersey City and grew up in Cliffside Park. Gobo didn’t start out in financial services after college. He graduated from Montclair State University with a BA in Psychology and taught high-school for six years before beginning a life-changing career in financial services. He is the author of several published articles and has been a guest on CNBC, NBC, ABC, MSNBC, FOX Business News, Bloomberg, and CNN. The PMP mentees were paired as a group with the mentor to explore career possibilities beyond a liberal arts and humanities degree.

Students included Hamna Khuld, Hope Hood, Mr. Altair Gobo, Shenille Friday, Hope Kremer and Julie Bravo.
