Don't know the difference between a Federal, FICA or Medicare payroll deduction?  Or your gross and net pay?

You will soon need to know these items since they are deducted from your first paycheck (and every check thereafter)!

Hosted by Bellisario College of Communications, Moira Crabtree, from Penn State's Sokolov-Miller Family Financial and Life Skills Center will be speaking about, "How to make sense of your Dollars and Cents in your first job".  This is a thought-provoking and engaging presentation on the financial ramifications of making the transition from student to professional.  The event will be light-hearted and fun. You won't want to miss it!  We'll also discuss how to create a budget living in NYC on an entry-level salary!

Be sure to make time to join us, Monday, March 23rd, 6 pm, via Zoom at  It will pay dividends for you…literally!

This presentation will help all students, but will certainly resonate with our senior-class students about to enter the workforce!
